The Apple event on 12 September won’t just see the launch of the iPhone 5, but also the launch of a new version of the iPod Touch. According to Tech website, 9to5Mac, Apple will be introducing new versions of the iPod shuffle, Nano, and Touch devices at the event.
As far as the iPods are concerned, Apple has ensured that there have been virtually no news leaks.
The 9to5Mac report says that Apple will retain the Fourth generation design for the 8Gb version of the iPod touch. The report also says that the 16 and 32 GB versions will redesigned and there’s a good chance that the new iPod will have a 4-inch screen. The current versions have a 3.5 inch screen with 960x 640-pixel resolution at 326 pixels per inch.
The iPod Touch might also come in more than two colours, the current Black and White. Remember the iPod Touch is just like an iPhone except that you can’t make calls from it. (That can however be rectified with wi-fi access and free calling services like Skype and Viber)
The report also states that iPod Touch could see a smaller dock connector, new packaging/iOS 6 pre-installed, or a bump in the base storage capacity configuration.
As far the iPod shuffle is concerned don’t expect any radical changes except perhaps more colours. Oh and the new iPod Touch is likely to be priced at $299 to $399, which is not exactly cheap, but hey it won’t cost as much as the iPhone.
