I can see a 4.7 inch touch but never a 5.5.
Sounds like a plan. I hope it works out for ya.I will only buy a 5.5" iPod Touch to replace a iPad Mini, i currently have a iPod Touch 5G and i won't like to replace my current iPod 5G with a 4.7" iPod because then i won't use my 5G anymore, when a 5.5" will be released than i can use it to replace a iPad Mini and so i can buy a big latest iPad

Oh i could see it. Think about it. The iPod shuffle & nano are the traditional music only iPods. The touch is more of a gaming, web surfing, picture taking, movie watching device now. Sounds like an ipad to me. In fact, I think that's why they will be updated along with the iPads this year instead of with the iPhones as they usually are. So a 5.5" iPod touch will basically be an ipad nano. This could totally happen, makes perfect sense. I could see a 4.7" iPod touch too. Perhaps both. The 4.7" could remain the iPod touch and the 5.5" could be renamed the ipad nano. Hey, could happen.
I think such a move would explode slumping iPod touch sales.
Guess we'll find out soon enough.
I do not buy that argument. That's like saying Apple will never release an iPad mini because it'd canabilize the ipad. Um...well they did...and it didn't. Hello. News flash....it's ALL Apple. And to them its all good. In fact, the more product lines they introduce, the more people seem to buy multiple devices. I would argue that if Apple did release a 5.5" iPod, I could see people buy it in droves in addition to a iPad mini or an iPad Air.And that's why they won't make one.
Apple does not need to explode the iPod touch sales at the expense of the iPad mini. A 5.5 inch would cost $100 more than the current iPod as well.
I'm also looking for the Touch 6 or the rMini 2 but I'm doubtful either of them will come out this year.Well my fate will be revealed because I would like the ipod touch 6 to come out on that date, but if that fails I guess I'll have to get the iPad mini which will help a lot with school
I agree with previous posters. 4.7 iPod Touch 6 but not a 5.5". They're not going to invest in a higher end iPod line when customers are willing to fork out $1000+ dollars for an iPhone 6+ (I'm referring to CDN prices). If we put that in US perspective that's still 850+ per phone. Yeah, no way.
I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss a 5.5" iPod touch. Think about it. The iPod touch is more of an ipad than an iPod. I believe Apple didn't update the iPod touch with the iPhones this year because the product is evolving. It doesn't just do music. It's more of a device to surf the web, send emails, watch videos, play games on etc. Sounds more like an ipad to me. So I think it make sense that Apple might update the iPod touch alongside the iPads at the Oct 16th event. And if they do, I think a 5.5" version is totally possible. They could even rename it an ipad nano.You are right. Plus the touch is a small market and they won't make two devices for it and definitely not a 5.5 one will HD screen. Not Apple like.
Well, you can cross Sapphire screen off that list for sure. GTAT is declaring bankruptcy and there aint no way the iPod touch would get one while the iPhones didn't. Nope.Take existing iPod5
No other changes necessary! And they will have at least one sale to me
I don't want a bigger IPod Touch.
That's defeating the purpose.
Of course what would be nice would be also addition of
Even smaller form factor because bezels reduced to zero.
2+ day battery life
Double DPI from current.
But then that would be the iPhone 7.
IF this is true, I'd consider it sad that the Mac "RUMORS" site had absolutely ZERO rumors about a new iPod Touch and it's almost the supposed release date.While this is good news, the iPod Touch is usually updated on even years. So I wouldn't really consider this to be "breaking" news
If true, that's a sad statement about society paying through the nose for phone and data service all so they can walk out into traffic and get hit by a bus. People need to turn their damn cell phones off already and concentrate on driving and walking. I'm sick of seeing everyone holding a damn phone to their ear while swerving all over the road. An iPod Touch mitigates this since you can only use it in WiFi areas like Restaurants and Hotels and your own house. Plus with the monthly savings (I pay $8 a month for cell service for emergencies and occasional family calls), I can buy a brand new Macbook Pro every other year instead. I wonder if people paying out the nose EVER stop to think about how much $70+ a month adds up over a very short period of time.If anything, it will just be a spec bump so that it can support future iOS. I wouldn't expect a redesign of any kind. There's just no market for the iPod line. It will probably be entirely gone within the next few years.
Most analyst believe that it refers to either the Apple TV or Mac Mini.The tag line for the event is "Its been too long" ....hmmm. That definitely applies to the iPod touch more than iPads or even iMacs.
It's not just Mac Rumors. I wonder how many people will be surprised if Apple doesn't even mention the Touch on Thursday ?IF this is true, I'd consider it sad that the Mac "RUMORS" site had absolutely ZERO rumors about a new iPod Touch and it's almost the supposed release date.
I'd wait at least until Thursday tho. To see if they update them along with the iPads.I really wish apple to update iTouch, it have been a while since last announcement. But it seems they will not release it this year.
No leaks about it. Not a single leak... It's impossible. Sorry guys, but i would not wait..
