Last month, reports started coming out that the Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation will be making its debut at the upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2015 to be held at Moscone West in San Francisco, California on June 8 to 12 which the American tech giant would be hosting.
WWDC 2015 is basically an event for software developers so when the report first came out, it immediately drew suspicion as nothing but a wild rumor or another major speculation about the Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation.
Apple also did not make any statement or announcement to confirm or deny the report on the supposed launching of the latest iteration to its very popular media player device.
Apparently, the rumor was short-lived as less than a week before the WWDC 2015 event, Crossmap, which also reported that Apple would be launching its iPod Touch 6th Generation in the same event, backtracked on its report and has reverted back to saying that the upcoming media player from the American tech giant will be launched on September along with the next iPhones of the company.
Convergence to the iPhone
The upcoming Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation is expected to be like the usual iPod but is converged with an iPhone.
This means that the features of the upcoming music device from the American tech giant shall combine those that were highlighted on the iPod Touch 5th Generation released to the retail markets in 2012 and the latest iPhones.
The Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation is expected to be unveiled in the fall of this year and will likely make it to the retail markets around September, which will be simultaneous to the roll-out of the next iPhones from the Cupertino-based tech company.
While there have been previous skepticisms about the launching of the iPod Touch 6th Generation as some believe that the iPod Touch 5th Generation is to be the last media player to come out from Apple, the deluge of information, features and specifications that have already been released since last year, really makes the iPod Touch 6th Generation a plausible reality.
Since Apple has not been making any official statement to either confirm or deny the speculations about the iPod Touch 6th Generation, many argue that it has been typical of Apple to be mum on all its gadgets and devices prior to their launchings. The company usually makes official statements during or after its product launches.
In addition to its water-resistant and Siri features, Apple is said to be putting a lot of groundbreaking features 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
