  • New iPhone 4, iPod Touch, and iPod Nano Models Appear In Apple's Inventory

    It seems that Apple has added a number of new entries for revised iPhone 4 and iPod Touch models to its internal inventory database. According to the folks over at 9to5Mac, three new iPod Touch models have appeared under the codename N81A, which is presumably the new white iPod Touch in three different storage capacities. The current black iPod Touch is expected to continue being offered under its existing code name of N81. The information seems to agree with speculation that Apple was only introducing minor updates to the iPod Touch and mainly focusing on the iPhone in next week’s announcement, hence the “Lets Talk iPhone” invitations being sent out to the media.

    Apple is expected to make a quiet update to the black iPod Touch, even going as far as using the same internal codename and SKU as the current model. The few minor changes that are being implemented include an improved ambient light sensor and the use of oleophobic coating (to help reduce finger print smudging on the screen). Speculation suggests that October 14th is the availability date for the new iPod Touch models.

    The iPhone 4 revisions are beginning to appear in its inventory database and are marked as N90A, a small change over the current N90 device, which is the current GSM iPhone 4 (the CDMA iPhone 4 has the codename N92). The two N90A models that are in the database, suggest that they are the modified low-end iPhone 4 units (in both black and white), with potentially 8GB of storage. The “iPhone 4S” is known to have a codename of N94 and hasn’t yet appeared in Apple’s inventory database though.

    Last but not least, it also seems that Apple is preparing a small update for the iPod Nano as well. Information indicates that the revised iPod Nano will be carrying a codename of N20A, which is different from the six-generation iPod Nano that has a codename of N20.

    It’s just a matter of time though as all this information and much more will be revealed in Apple’s October 4th event next week.

      What can I say? I like to lurk

      And you're absolutely right, it is rubbish... It's all speculation until Tim or Steve walks out onto that stage in Cupertino and tells us what we are getting next from apple.

      That's why I learned my lesson lol. I will wait for the bigger better one. If it's not the iPhone 4s.. I will wait...

      What is to keep me from just getting the Galaxy S II on Oct 2 and just keeping my existing iPhone 4? Apple is playing catch up at this point. The best thing that Apple has going for it is iOS and the App Store. If the next iPhone has the specs above on Oct 4th..I will use one of my 3 upgrades to get the Galaxy S II and wait for the next iPhone. Blasphemy, I know. However I am a Techie Not a FAN BOY right now Android has the better hardware.

      Thanks for the compliments guys - appreciate the feedback. As to join in on the discussion, although Android has the better hardware, I don't think the hardware alone is the reason people stick to the iPhone. From the people I know and from what I have seen (and I haven't conducted any research on this obviously), it's the ease of use, the iOS firmware, and the App Store. Compared to an Android phone, each of the previously mentioned reasons have several benefits over the Android platform.

      I have a iPhone 4 and a galaxy s2. The s2 blows away the iPhone in terms of hardware. However after a few days using the samsung I found myself going back to my iPhone. iOS trumps android any day.

      I totally agree. That is why I still have my iPhone 4. iOS is the difference. I am running iOS 5 beta 7 and there is so much potential there it blows all current Android OS's out of the water!
