Hearing that the new iPod touch 5G had finally arrived would have been music to some people’s ears, which is due to the iPod touch not being refreshed with a new 5th generation last year. The fact is we are almost at the point of release, although Apple still fail to deliver a date for when the new iPod touch will ship and currently only offer a month that you should expect the device to start shipping.
Apple are promoting the 2012 iPod touch as designed for “maximum funness“, and they aim to do this with a range of bright colors in a new design, which features not only a 4-inch Retina display similar to that on the new iPhone 5, but also many other improvements like the Dual-core A5 chip, and iSight camera with 1080p video. These new specs for the iPod touch 5G will make the device much more fun when needing to capture memories, which are backed up with more enhancements found with iOS 6.
The lack of iPod touch 5G release date is confusing some people that would expect something more specific by now, and this has led to thousands of people that have pre-ordered heading to forums asking when the iPod touch 5G will ship? Some 3rd party retailers have listed dates, like Play.com with a date of Oct 15, but the best advice is to wait until the shipping notices start to arrive, which will certainly be this month unless there are some unforeseen problems.
Did you pre-order the new iPod touch, and if so are you getting impatient with the wait for an exact release date? You can see the information on the official Apple store in the image above, which just details the month they expect to ship the new hardware.
