New Delhi: With rumours rife about the announcement of next-generation iPhone, unofficially dubbed iPhone 5, on September 12, speculations are now emerging about the launch of new iPods on the same day. If reports are to be believed, Apple is planning to launch redesigned iPods - iPod touch, iPod nano, and iPod shuffle - including the 4-inch iPod touch, alongside the highly expected iPhone 5.
According to a report from The Verge, a technology website, "The upcoming iPod touch will feature a 4-inch, 16:9 display similar to the one Apple is expected to use in the iPhone 5."
Rumours have hinted that Apple will retain the fourth generation design for the entry-level iPod touch configuration, and will restyle the two high-end models. "This new entry level configuration is said to be tweaked. We're not sure what this tweak refers to, but we speculate that it has to do with a either (or a combination of) a smaller dock connector, new packaging/iOS 6 pre-installed, or a bump in the base storage capacity configuration," mentioned 9to5Mac in its report.
If reports are to be believed, Apple is planning to launch redesigned iPods - iPod touch, nano, and shuffle.
Further, the report states that Apple might announce the new iPod shuffle and the new iPod nano in eight colours at its September 12 event. The company is expected to launch the iPod shuffle at or around the current $49 price point.
"It appears that Apple may only have the higher-priced, higher configuration iPod nano this year. The current high-end of the iPod nano line is a 16GB player for $149. The price and capacity for this year's model is still unconfirmed, though, but the price will likely not differ by much, if at all," said the 9to5Mac report.
