Leaked Component Image Suggests 6th iGen Pod touch in the Works
A new image leaked to Letem Svetem Applem
on Thursday reportedly shows a component built for the 6th generation iPod touch.
If the image is legitimate, it could suggest a looming refresh for the least in-demand of iDevices today.
For now, there are no juicy details - or concrete information of any sort - emerging along with the photo that was first shared on the European tech blog. But we are told that the shot portrays a flex cable that will be used to produce the 6th-gen iPod touch.
Unfortunately, this image provides too little upon which to base an accurate estimation as to what the 6th-gen iPod touch may deliver in terms of hardware upgrades. However, if Apple's past is any indication of its future, the next iPod touch may offer some of the components found inside of the current iPhone.
Although the iPod touch enjoyed a fairly comprehensive redesign just last year, Apple doesn't appear poised to put the iPod touch on the back-burner for all of 2013. The rumor mill is clearly pointing to a late summer or early fall refresh.
