It looks like Apple has been very busy upgrading its line of MacBooks and iPhones but has neglected the iPod. As a matter of fact many people believed that the iPod was dead. However, it looks like a new iPod is going to be released soon as the company is working to completely revamp it and upgrade it with entirely new features. It is believed that new models will be arriving tomorrow, including an upgraded processor for the iPod touch lineup.
According to a recent report, Apple will begin offering an entirely new line of the popular music players like the iPod Nano, iPod Shuffle and iPod Touch in a large range of colors, including Gray Sidereal, Pink, Classic Black, Fuchsia, Electric Blue and Gold. The report also claims that the small models won’t receive any upgrades regarding their specifications but the iPod Touch model will receive an upgrade to a 64-bit processor, replacing the current 32-bit A5 one it currently has.
Even though the news hasn’t been officially confirmed by Apple, the launch date comes from a code that was spotted in the latest update of iTunes, namely iTunes 12.2. In the past, Apple revealed iPods in September.
Rumors recently claimed that the tech giant is no longer going to roll out any upgrades to the iPod line of products but this new information posted on the French website Igen, has revealed, to the surprise of many, that Apple hasn’t yet given up on its popular line of music players. Igen claims that Apple will launch new iPod Nanos and iPod Shuffles and will also reveal a greatly improved version of the iPod touch, which is the company’s touch screen music player.
Recently, the tech giant has also revealed to the public Apple Music, which is its own music streaming service. It looks like the company is trying to focus its efforts on the music hardware lineup as well, with the introduction of the new iPods.
We will also get to see Android’s own version of the Apple music player coming this fall. These new iPods presented by Apple may also help the company sell a lot more Beats Music headphones as well. At the moment, the 16GB version of the iPod Touch costs $199, the 32GB one $249 and the 64GB model is priced at $299.
