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:
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 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.
