    that bar in the picture is only for the ipad.
    3rd and 4th generation ipod touch's have a multi tasking bar but it does not include the brightness control.

    Damn I thought there will be brightness control in the multitask bar for the ipod too :(
    oh well...
    Edit: just noticed they have the volume control in the multitaking bar for the ipod
    Maybe they can also put a brightness controll bar in the next update

    I also wanted brightness controls in the multitasking bar...That's the only reason I updated like 2 minutes ago.

    Why would ANYONE think we needed volume controls there when we have physical buttons to control volume (not to mention volume controls in the music app and also accessible by the lock screen)

    I just sent feedback to apple about this. Seems like it would have been obvious to include brightness controls like they did with the iPad but guess not.

    Honestly i like my ipod a lot but these kind of limitations are why I'm positive I won't be getting an iphone when it comes time to jump on the smartphone bandwagon.

    i believe they didnt add that considering the screen is too small for all those buttons

    Not sure if I believe the "too small" thing. I mean, how large do we really need to see a "brightness" icon or symbol. I believe Apple should have included this feature in the ipod touch 4g version as well. I was shocked when I double-clicked the home button and it wasn't there... Only the original multi-tasking area.

    I agree, Saturn1217. I only rushed to get the update because I thought this functionality would be present on the ipod touch as well. Not happy...

    I agree, I would much prefer to have brightness in the multitasking bar, with physical buttons on the side, and access to the volume via the music app, or double clicking the home button while locked. While going into settings to change brightness is a bit of a faff.
