Apple’s annual developers conference has come and gone and it was with no mention of a new generation of the iPod line that helped bring the company back from the grave in the early 2000’s. That doesn’t mean Apple is planning a successor to the latest 5th generation iPod Touch that has been around since late 2012.
In a report by the Gospel Herald it is claimed that Apple will indeed unveil a 6th generation iPod Touch device in the coming fall with a price point possibly being $250 and $300 depending on size. That’s right it looks as if the iPod will follow suite of the recent iPhone 6 and be offered in both a 4.7 inch and 5.5 model with respective prices.
The 6th generation iPod Touch is expected to retain all the typical features of it’s predecessors but incorporate features that have come to be on Apple’s more recent phones. The are calling it a “two in one device” although we do not expect it to be able to make calls as that would put the iPhone in a hard spot.
While many believed the last iPod to be the last iteration there has been many aspects that have come to light over the past year that make the new iPod Touch a probable reality. Such information includes features and specs related to the device.
The failure to report on such speculation by Apple also leads many to believe a pending release as it is very typical of Apple to ignore all talk of upcoming gadgets until they are ready to announce.
From being water resistant to utilizing Siri the 6th Generation is packed with features. One most notable feature is the expected use of Apple’s mobile pay system “Apple Pay”. The device is even being rumored to be powered by the new A9 processor which puts it a step above the current iPhone 6 in terms of hardware.
Since Apple is keeping quiet as usual we will have to wait and see in the coming months whether the device is myth or fact.
