I know the iPod touch is old but, I just got one engraved for my birthday (october 2013). I have iOS 8 beta 4 on it right now and it runs almost as good as iOS 7, just a little bit of folder lag sometimes. So I was wondering if the iPT 5 would get iOS 9, or any A5 powered iDevice at all! I would be really bummed/mad if it didn't, because it cost $300 brand new! I think it would, because they would have to drop so many devices, like the iPad 2 and 3, iPhone 4s, iPad mini 1st gen, and the iPod touch 5. That sucks because I have an iPad 2 and 3 and iPT 5 and iPhone 4s. I think it would get iOS 9, but not all the features that the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 would.
