Apple has released new iPod software designed to support its new iPod nano.

iPod Updater 2005-09-06 (36.1MB) includes new iPod Software 1.0 for iPod nano.

Otherwise the package contains existing software versions for all other iPod models.

The iPod nano software lets users access all the features they would expect from an iPod, including the capability to browse photo libraries; listen to music, audiobooks and podcasts; use the iPod as an external hard drive; as well as a new security feature.

The new security feature lets users lock their iPod's screen to prevent others using it without permission.
