iPod touch 6th generation frustration prolonged

By Peter Chubb - Mar 13, 2015

Well, another Apple event and still no sign of the iPod touch 6th generation, although we are starting to get used to this prolonged frustration. It was back in September of 2012 that the current model was launched, and with this year being three years, you would assume that its successor would happen this year.

iPod touch 6th generation disappointment – We are starting to get too used to being disappointed by the lack of news regarding a new iPod, and so people are now starting to even forgot about the idea of the iPod touch 6G.

There is a growing consensus that there is no longer a business for a next generation iPod, and the support that exists is dwindling as each month passes. With this in mind we have to wonder if the customer base is still large enough to warrant a new model?

iPod touch 6G frustration

The specs on the current touch are still pretty decent and more than capable of doing what it’s designed to do. However, the problem lays in its software, as iOS 6 ran like a dream, yet when updated to iOS 7 and iOS 8 that was when things started to go downhill, as many users started to experience lag.

Possibility of the iPod touch 6th-gen this September – Now that Apple has unveiled its Watch and will be made available next month, there is a very good chance that the company could gets its iPod touch back on track. It’s for this very reason why a lot of people have started to surmise that we could see the 6G model unveiled during the iPhone 6S event in September.

Do you think we will ever see a new touch, and if so, then what are the chances of it being released later this year?

    There are two kinds of forecasters – those who don’t know and those who don’t know that they don’t know.

    I just saw a pink iPhone 6 somewhere on the web and since it cannot be released on Mothers’ Day, so then, I began to wonder if Apple might introduce the next generation Ipod touch 6 in Pink & Deep Red colours for a possible launch on February 14th, 2016…..One whole year for them to gather all the materials to assemble the long awaited prodigal device….HOWEVER…..I am no longer going to wait impatiently…. not worth it to give yourself any stress over it all.
    And you know it will be OK if it fails to show ever again.

    I am eagerly anticipating a new gen ipod touch. However, I just hope that its a unique media player which current specs and not dated specs. I haven’t yet updated my 5th gen to iOS 8 too. I fear that will make me more desperate for an upgrade. I suppose September sounds the next likely reveal of the new device. Maybe they want the device to be a Christmas seller.
