Based on Apple's release schedule since the Touch 3rd gen, the current 16G Touch (A4) will be updated this fall (September/October) to the current design and there will only be minor updates (color, etc) for the 32G/64G.Wondered if Apple will release a 5th Gen. 16G ipod touch soon.would love to purchase one for around 200 to take to beach and 16G is about right storage for my needs.
Take a look at the iPod Touch history. They have a major upgrade every other year for the two biggest capacity Touch and they update the smallest capacity Touch to the current design in the off years.
They probably will not reduce the price $100.00.They may if the component costs of the 5G go down.
Selling a 16GB model means they have to shave $100 off the price, which may kill their profit margins on the device.
It all depends on profits.
