Is the iPod Touch gone for good? For years, there have been rumors of a sixth-generation iPod Touch, but the device was a no-show last September when the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were announced, and it wasn't mentioned at last Monday's Apple Spring Forward Event.
It has been a while since Apple has released a new iPod Touch. The fifth generation device was released back in September 2012, with shipments beginning the following month. The launch marked a significant improvement as the iPod Touch 5 came with a 4-inch Retina display found in the iPhone 5, a faster dual core A5 chip, a 5MP camera and a looped wrist strap.
Though the iPod Touch fifth generation sported major upgrades which sets it apart from its predecessors, the product line saw declining sales in recent years as customers have shifted to smartphones for their media player, camera, and app needs. Given that news about the 6th generation iPod has been scarce as of the recent months, it remains unclear when the device might see its next upgrade. However, there are rumors that the gadget could be released this year, specifically by September, when Apple traditionally launches its latest flagship devices. more >>
