iPod touch 7th-gen release clues point to 2017 10th Anniversary

By Peter Chubb - Aug 6, 2016

You might wonder what we are talking about when we say that the iPod touch 7th-gen release clues point to the device not being released this year, but rather next year, especially as there have not really been too many rumours in regard to the sixth generation model.

The thing is, it is these lack of rumours that actually make us believe that the iPod touch 7G will actually be released as the 2017 10th Anniversary model. It’s not a complete stretch of the imagination considering the fact that there have been a number of reports to suggest that the iPhone 7 will be a lacklustre update, and that Apple will skip next years S model and release the iPhone 8 as the Tenth Anniversary model as well.

iPod Touch 7th generation release

It was always doubtful that we would see a new iPod touch this year, especially as the current model was released back in July 2015, and we know the release cycle is not every year. We do know that the 5th-gen to 6th-gen had a three-year gap, but with 2017 being such a special year for Apple, we feel that they will make a few exceptions.

The very first iPhone was released on June 29, 2007, and the first generation iPod touch on September 5, 2007, and so next year marks their 10th anniversary. Most of the rumours in regards to the iPhone do point to an Anniversary model being released next year, and so we can only assume the iPod touch will be given the same treatment.

Even though there are nonexistent release clues for iPod touch 7G, do you take this as a sign that Apple will release the model in 2017?

    I hope it doesn’t come out in 2017, and comes out just before Christmas!

    Not much of a demand for them since your phone will do everything an iPod will do.
    They need to do something so it will stand apart from a phone in a big way.

    I’d like to have the ability to use the apple maps outside of my home. You need internet to use it on the ipod, so add some gps functionality to the new one would be good. Doesn’t need anything too fancy, bump in processing and graphics etc as per norm. I’d also like to see their upcoming ios 10 have a smart feature built in so when you are away from internet your typical siri function switches automatically to allow you to control your apps. Like play music etc. I think it’s size is still great, physically, but yes I’d like to see a bump in the base storage size to be 32gb. Maybe a batter price than they are currently listed.

    i’d love a bigger screen 32gb base model ipod touch 7g. That would do it for me to have the cheapest access to a new IOS device
