    Do you think there's a possibility that Apple will release any new iPods at the event?

    There is that they will and there is that they won't. Nobody knows until that day.

    Good chance they will release a new one to become a top-line device while the update a couple months back will remain the solid bottom-line model for a couple years.

    However, there is a good chance Apple will not update the iPT for another month or three or six. I think the iPT will always hang around as a neutered iPhone for the kids. It isn't difficult to engineer or produce, it uses "last year's" tech, it is the best-selling iPod; it will be a kind of iPod Classic once the Classic is dropped.

    Well apple technically updated the iPod touch in June of this year.
    I'm not expecting anything major. I'm actually expecting nothing at all.
    Only time will tell, 10 more days.

    In my opinion, no chance at all.

    I also do not expect any iPad announcements during the Sept 9th keynote.

    iPads: October 2014.
    Touch 6: March 2015 at the earliest.

    It is possible, without a doubt!
    Glad to clear that one for you!

    I don't think so. I think the Sept. 9 event is for the iPhone 6 and possibly the iWatch only.

    When the Touch 6 doesn't come out this fall, how many people who guaranteed that Apple will release a Touch 6 this fall will admit that they were wrong. The answer falls somewhere between zero and none :D.

    maybe yes, maybe no.

    They should just discontinue Ipod touch line if they don't upgrade because A5 already quite sluggish on current games.
    Or Iphone would be like 3 gen ahead of Ipod touch in term of hardware. A8 to A5

    It's not sluggish on any of the games I play. I think it's still good for another year. After that I think it will start to show its age.

    I seriously doubt this due to the recent 'refresh' to the iPod touch line.

    Please post a list of specific games that run sluggish on the Touch 6 to support your post.

    The iPod file in the screenshot is named "...568h-iPod" though. I don't see one pointing to a 736-point iPod.

    Im beginning to feel u are stalking my post 555.

    First of all, Bioshock wont play on it. How can you call the device for gaming experience when one of the best port couldn't run on it.

    Crazy taxi = almost unable to enjoy the game if it just kept stuttering on every time i turn.
    Rayman is flying and running in slow-mo on some level

    Most of all, 512 ram is too little.

    U want kids to buy the Touch to play games, why not throw in A8 and 1G ram and get rid of the camera. Most people have their phone to take pictures. 100 usd unlock android has a camera.... whats the point.

    Not at all :D. I have never experienced any stuttering / slow-mo on my Touch 5 after I turned on reduced motion, The problem is that people can make a general statement as fact and there is no way of verifying their statements without specifics. Everyone knows that Bioshock will not be written for the Touch and now you gave me two other games to download and try out.

    Some of the games I have run on my Touch 5 are
    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
    N.O.V.A 3 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance
    Gangstar Rio: City of Saints
    Infinity Blade II
    The Oregon Trail
    Assassin's Creed Pirates
    RAGE
    Dungeon Hunter 2
    Galaxy on Fire 2
    Dead Space
    ARC Squadron
    The 7th Guest
    Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders
    Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD
    Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12
    Catan
    Dungeon Hunter
    Carcassonne
    Real Racing
    Superbrothers: Sword & Sorcery EP
    Both Marathon Games
    All Angry Bird Games
    Let's Golf
    Bad Piggies
    Civilization Revolution
    Temple Run 2
    Need for Speed Undercover
    Carmageddon
    Rise of Lost Empires
    Knights of Pen and Paper
    Plants vs Zombies
    New World Colony
    The Sims Medieval
    Cribbage Premium
    Fruit Ninja
    Flight Control
    Strategery
    Tiny Wings

    I would love to see a Touch with an A8 and 1GB RAM (I would be the first in line to buy one :) ) but I honestly find that my Touch 5 runs well with the games currently out there.

    I'd bet my rent money that there won't be any significant updates.

    According to the description it is not compatible, but has anyone tried it on their touch 5 too see if it really is not compatible at all?
