The sixth generation iPod touch launched in July of last year (2015). The 16GB colored 5th Generation iPod touch that had both a front and rear facing camera came out the year before (2014) around the same time to replace the 16GB rear-facing-camera-less Black and Silver 5th Generation model. The year before that (2013) the 16GB rear-facing-camera-less Black and Silver version of the 5th generation iPod touch replaced the 16GB and 32GB versions of the fourth Generation iPod touch that were still being sold alongside the fifth generation. The year before that (2012), we had the fifth generation iPod touch being launched for the first time. The year before that (2011), we had the introduction of the white variant of fourth generation iPod touch. The year before that (2010), we had the introduction of the fourth generation iPod touch. And each year preceding, at the same time, we had, respectively, the third generation, second generation, and first generation models respectively. It is now 2016 and September (iPhone [formerly iPod] month) is upon us. The iPod touch isn't in as dire of straits as it was (tech specs wise) in 2014 or in 2015 before the sixth generation launched, but given that Apple doesn't even have an "iPod" section at the top of their website's navigation bar (you actually have to know where to go in order to find their page on iPods), and given that all of their iPods (even the touch, to a degree) sort of conflict with their Apple Music strategy, it is hard to see a long and lasting future for that product line. Yet, one might argue that if they were going to kill them off, they would've had ample reason to do so by now. Each year, though some definitely more substantial and impacting than others, Apple has at least changed the lineup a bit. So, I ask you all: what will Apple do with the iPod touch this year? --- Post Merged, Sep 1, 2016 --- For the record, I have no clue what they'll do and, so, I haven't cast my vote here. I have always had a fondness for the iPod touch, and barring the weird battery/power glitches I'm experiencing with mine, I love my 128GB 6th Gen and hope Apple never stops making them, but I'd be lying if I said my iPhone 6s Plus wasn't starting to cannibalize it for its uses.
