The community really wants to see a new iPod touch 6th generation device, but with no leaks or analysts predicting an upgrade, it’s increasingly unlikely to happen anytime soon. In previous years we saw some leaked parts, like you see now with the iPhone 6, although in 2014 all we have seen is a refresh of the iPod touch and no whispers from the production line.
This is still speculation, but if there’s no new iPod touch 6G we wonder how Product Reviews readers will feel? It’s clear there’s thousands of iPod touch owners that love their device, also many want to see an upgrade with new features. Some even feel Apple’s brand was made by the iPod, or at least gained their coolness from the Apple portable media player.
How will you feel if no 6th generation iPod touch gets revealed today, or even at an Apple event in October? There’s so much that Apple could do with a new upgrade, and not just a refresh like we saw earlier in 2014. The fans want new features like they have seen added to the iPad, or iPhone, although the don’t want the contract costs that come with smartphones.
Wonder if Apple will release a 6th Gen iPod Touch as well? #ipodtouch

I'm hoping that #Apple is coming out with the iPod touch 6th Gen. If not… I'm not going to be happy.

The tweets above are just a very small taste of those on Twitter. It is very clear there’s a lot of consumers demanding an iPod touch 6. Personally, we feel there’s massive demand for an upgrade for both older generation owners and those looking to purchase an iPod touch for the first time.
We have to wonder if an iWatch will take its place in a fall product lineup? There’s no way Apple will discontinue the media player anytime soon, but they just might have too many other products this year for the time to fit a new iPod into the lineup.
