The Apple iPod Touch 5th Generation was launched in September 2012 so it is only fitting that the next upgrade to the media player shall also come out in September but three years hence.
But September is usually the month when the American tech giant launches its flagship smartphones. Apple did it with iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S in 2012, the iPhone 5C in 2103 and the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in 2014.
Apple is likely to come out with its next generation of iPhones in September this year. The only question is whether it will be iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, or the reported iPhone 6S, the iPhone 6S Plus, and the iPhone 6C.
The Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation is definitely coming out in September 2015 so it would be quite ideal for the American tech company to just bundle the launching of the devices together in one major event, typical of Apple launching events, cites Latinos Post.
Since much of the function of the iPod Touch can already be done by the iPhones and the iPads, Apple made sure that the iPod Touch 6th Generation would have groundbreaking features to make it truly unique and allow it to stand out from the rest of the pack.
It seems like Apple will not disappoint its fans and consumers for the next generation iPod Touch as aside from the being a powerful device, it will also be water-resistant and feature Apple’s digital assistant Siri on it.
Siri would enable the user to make the operation of the Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation as easy and as seamless as possible.
In addition to its water-resistant and Siri features, Apple is said to be putting a lot of firsts on the music device to ensure that it will have a captured market once it’s released this coming September
Accordingly, the iPod Touch 6th Generation shall feature Apple’s mobile payment system, the Apple Pay. The device shall be powered by an A9 microprocessor, which is way better than the chipset currently being used in the manufacture of the iPhone 6. The processor is said to be better and faster although at this point in time, the A9 microprocessor has yet to officially come out from production
The iPod Touch 6th Generation shall come out in two display size variants – a 4.7-inch screen size version and a 5.5-inch display size and both versions will apparently feature Retina display which means excellent resolutions.
Finally, the iPod Touch 6th Generation is reportedly coming out of the box with the iOS 9 already on it. Reports have it that the latest Apple mobile operating system is now on its final beta-testings and it is likely that it will be rolling out any time before September, giving the iPod Touch 6th Generation the perfect prelude.
The Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation shall come in six different colors including silver, pink, red, blue, space grey, and yellow. It will have 1GB of RAM but can be upgraded to as much as 128GB through a microSD card.
The Apple iPod Touch 6 will reportedly have a longer battery life, improved security features that include Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and shall sport an 8-megapixel iSight camera which shall also be waterproof just like the Apple Watch. It shall also be compatible with the iWatch.
“It will have 1GB of RAM but can be upgraded to as much as 128GB through a microSD card”.
In any case, I always believed that the day apple decided to use an SD card slot would be the day they ran out of ideas. I see nothing listed in the specs above to think otherwise.
The Ipod will cost between 250 and 350 Dollar (without Taxes). For this Prize you’ll get a very good Windows Phone and a good Android-Phone.. And the best: With these Phones you can make phone calls, with an iPod not! :P
That’s quite interesting to hear that a new iPod Touch is coming out. I honestly thought Apple had decided to end production of iPods and focus totally on iPhones because that’s where the money is. I thought demand for iPods had died after the iPod Classic was dumped. I probably wouldn’t mind buying a 128GB version of an iPod Touch especially if it has Touch ID and can use Apple Pay. It’s nice to hear that Apple will continue the iPod line and also come out with a new AppleTV.
