iPod touch 6th-gen release clues nonexistent

Updated on

Over the last year we have seen a number of iPod touch 6th-generation wish lists detailing specs that could improve the current version. Since the iPhone 5S Apple event these desires for iPod touch 6th-gen have included a 64-bit A7 processor, a camera with 120fps slow-motion video and burst mode, improved FaceTime HD camera, a similar price and even Touch ID.

We recently looked at the possibility of an iPod touch 6th-gen in multiple models, and consumers revealed the need for keeping an iPod touch as a device children can use before moving to smartphones.

It is almost certain that an iPod touch 6G will see a release date at some point, but considering the pattern Apple has been following it seems likely that they will continue a two year launch upgrade cycle.

With this in-mind and the fact that the 5G launched last year, most people don’t expect a new model at Apple’s Oct 22nd event next week. It should be noted you would still find thousands of people posting in forums hoping to see the next-generation launch before Christmas and they will hold off buying a 5G until the next keynote is over.

Nonexistent release clues for iPod touch 6G – the only solid leak we saw in recent months revealed a flex cable for the so-called 2013 iPod touch, but this was later proven to be false and since that story we have seen little to no details for a refresh this year.

It’s pretty clear that there will be not be a new iPod touch considering the lack of release clues and leaks, unless this is going to be the best kept product launch for Apple to date.

Personally, we expect the iPod touch 6th-gen to release in 2014 along side an iWatch towards the end of the year. This would follow the current launch pattern and the fact that Apple don’t mind being late to market with a new product line like a smartwatch.

You can expect to see new iPads and the 2013 Haswell MacBook Pro next week.
