  • iPod Touch Refresh to Bring New Colors to the Equation


    It was previously discovered that new iPods would be released alongside the iPhone 5 at Apple’s September 12 event. Furthermore, it was also revealed that the new iPod Touch would also be getting the new 4-inch, 16:9 screen which the iPhone currently utilizes. New reports are coming in stating that Apple might be keeping the old model around at the low price point while at the same time introducing some new colors to the equation as well.

    According to Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac:

    Originally Posted by :
    We’re also told that these new $299 and $399 iPod models (which we assume are new iPod touches) will come in multiple variations. Perhaps, for the first time, the new iPod touches will come in various colors, but that’s just what we’re inferring, not confirming.
    The Cupertino California company has kept older generation iPod Touches around the entry level price point so this isn’t exactly a new surprise when seen here. As far as giving the iPod Touch a 4-inch makeover and keeping a bargain price, that isn’t going to happen so they’ll go with the strategy that works best for them: something old and something new.

    The variety of colors that the iPod Shuffle will be available in will also go from the current 5 up to 8, and the iPod Nano is likely to see a completely new model.

    With all the changes coming up, consumers are likely itching to get their hands on the new hardware which is about to be announced and released. We’ll know more details after Apple’s announcement on September 12.

      the samething again, why are you using the picture of the iphone 5 mockup when the article itself says that there will be no new models and only new colors for the same model, please have better discretion when using pictures in articles when the article completely goes against the picture.

      Don't post if you are just going to complain about the staff. The mock up they are using is what is rumored to be the iPhone 5. There is no picture of the device yet. If they are talking about iPhone 5 rumors then the mock up fits perfectly.

      +1 if they are going to beef up the price I expect beefed up hardware not just a screen. Talking ram increase, A5x, 32/64/128GB options and better cameras. FFS its due!

      Wtf? Why do people like you think one rumor is the whole fate of the device? Like seriously? OH NO apples not going to use their superior a5-a5x choosing it. Oh and they won't use their new camera technology. They just spent millions in research developing and engineering to not use their technology.

      His opinion was him complaining they use the closest thing to a picture of the iPhone 5 as an image for iPhone 5 rumors. It's not like he said "I like turtles" and I called him a dumbass. His post was just 99.8725% retarded.

      true, he's allowed an opinion in the same way he's allowed to whine and cry like a menstruating schoolgirl about everything and you're allowed to misspell simple words like "allowed."

      Here's a Kleenex.

      So you've seen the official release announcement detailing the iPod changes and enhancements? Interesting, because the rest of the world hasn't.

      I guess on the Internet you're "aloud" spell how ever you want. The Internet supposedly educates, but it's just been showing me there is more stupid people world wide than I had previously anticipated.

      Turtles are pretty awesome, especially if they are the ninja variety.

      Well look at my point of view... There is rarely any announcements on the new iPod Touch 5G and when there is it just makes me think that apple doesnt care about it no more cuz these rumors sound like there's no big upgrade for the touch.... That's why im gonna ignore these rumors and just wait until wednesday
