As part of Apple's "Made for iPod" program, the Mac maker is pledging to make future iPods fit inside a standard well. Apple will include a plastic adapter for each new model, as it did with the recently introduced iPod Nano.
The 9-pin adapter, which paved the way for accessories like Griffin's iTrip, is not found on either the iPod Nano or the video-capable iPod introduced in October 2005.
The new video iPod is available in a 30GB model for $299 and a 60GB version for $399. It can hold up to 15,000 songs, 25,000 photos or more than 150 hours of video.
