iPod touch 6th generation in multiple models

By Updated on

The iPod touch 6th generation release date could very well be at the end of 2014, and considering the two year launch cycle this looks like it will be the case, but what specs land with the iPod touch 6G will be very interesting after recent developments with iPhone.

Killer iPod touch 6th-gen features – the idea of a fingerprint sensor for the next iPod touch has split fans, and while it would help some users with passwords and security it isn’t welcomed by many that see this specification as a novelty. “There are more important improvements for iPod touch 6G like battery life, waterproofing and camera”, said one Product Reviews reader.

For the iPod touch to continue its success it needs to separate from iPhone more clearly, in our opinion. There would be a number of features that could be added to do just this, or even different models for various user needs.

Apple revealed the iPhone 5S and 5C with slightly different specs and even less of a price difference, so this showed they would be happy to launch more than one model. With this in-mind, what could be done with different models of the 6th generation iPod touch?

Two models of iPod touch 6G we would love to see – considering some music concerts don’t allow you to take digital cameras in, but allow cell phones, it would be great to see a new iPod touch focused on improving its camera. Something with a zoom lens comes to mind, and one reason this is important is the demand for a device that’s almost a smartphone but without the contracts and cellular features.

Another model of iPod touch 6G would be a waterproof version and this would be ideal in a number of situations where users want to take their iPod. One commenter said, “The next iPod touch should be waterproof it would be a massive step forward and just amazing”.

Would you love to see more than one model of 6th generation iPod touch? If so, would you like the idea of a waterproof or camera version? Leave a comment below with your thoughts on these two models, and any other versions you would like to see for the iPod touch 6G.

Those of our readers that think another iPod touch isn’t needed should read about how parents use the device as a stepping-stone towards a smartphone, and the reaction we got to the idea of Apple discontinuing the device.

    I can’t think of a reason or anyone who would NOT welcome waterproofing as a top valuable feature.

    • iBooa the First

      Well, it does require extra flaps and a more rough material. If users want a neat, slick experience, the waterproof version would be annoying.

    The iPod Touch would be my dream device if it had a built-in VOIP phone. Free or cheap Wi-Fi calls with no data plan! You can already sort of do this using headset or speaker, but it just doesn’t work well.

    APPLE PLANS ON RELEASING A IPOD TOUCH 6TH GENERATION THIS YEAR. THE IPOD TOUCH HAS IPHONE 4 AND 4S PROCESSING AND CAMERA POWER. APPLE DOESN’T WANT TO LEAVE THAT DEVICE BEHIND IN TECHNOLOGY BUT GIVE IT A REFRESH. APPLE WANTS TO KEEP THERE PRODUCTS UP TO DATE. THE CURRENT IPOD TOUCH HAS OUTDATED TECHNOLOGY SUCH AS A A5 PROCESSOR. I THINK ITS TIME FOR THE IPOD TOUCH TO SEE A YEARLY REFRESH. INVESTORS WERE NOT ALL HAPPY WITH APPLE’S IPHONE 5S AND THE SLOPPY SEPTEMBER EVENT THIS OCTOBER APPLE HAS A CHANCE TO REVIVE THEM SELFS FROM THE SLOPPY RELEASE OF THE IPHONE 5S AND IPHONE 5C. APPLE WOULD NEVER DISCONTINUE THE IPOD TOUCH BECAUSE IT MAKES APPLE SO MUCH MONEY. PARRENTS WON’T WANT TO SPEND 549.00 ON A IPHONE 5S WITH NO CONTRACT JUST TO USE AS WIFI DEVICE. APPLE WANTS TO DO WHAT IS BEST FOR THE PARENTAL COMMUNITY THOSE PARENTS WITH KIDS. APPLE KNOWS THAT PARENTS WOULD BE TWEETING TO TIM COOK ON TWITTER BASHING HIM AND THE APPLE COMPUTER COMPANY.

    It needs an update in music technology, keep in mind, this is an iPod, built for music entertainment, so something like stereo speakers, or easier playback controls/buttons would be useful and nice. I see no reason for touch ID on a portable music player. An 8 megapixel camera that doesn’t protrude from the casing sounds great as well.

    The IPod should have some IPhone Features like calling with 3g internet or text messaging . It would be cool to have an 3g model of the IPod Touch 6g .

    No 3. Upgrade the camera. 2. Upgrade the processor. And the no. 1 want, REDUCE THE PRICE! Memory is constantly dropping in price, except in the Apple world. You want everyone who has an iPod to go back to the stores and online and order a new one, do these things with your finger print reader and watch them fly off the shelves. 128g iPod Touch $399. 64g $299, 32g $199, 16g $99.

    i think the ipod 6g should upgrade the camera and have diffrent flash colours and also it would be good to have it on 3g and also it should allow us to have whatsapp and other apps that we cannot have

  • Harry Khela

    Hmmmm,

    1. It should DEFINATELY upgrade the camera
    2. Adding new equalisers to make music more interesting, such as a speaker docking option, making the music fit for the correct speaker or car audio using AUX
    3. More MEMORY 128GB and a bigger RAM
    4. Fingerprint ID
    5. Gaming Pad?
    6. Keep it as one iPod 6G, don’t make two models like the 5C and 5S, i mean, what could you make different about an iPod?
    7. Don’t add 3G, it would be cool, but seriously, your better off buying an iPhone because you will have the same hassle of contracts and topping up. Also, let’s keep it as an iPod. Also, 3G would make it cost much more, like the iPad.
    8. Let WhatsApp messaging and other apps available on this device!
