Apple's plans regarding the iPod product lines is unclear. Where that is most apparent is in the iPod touch line; the current iPod touch being sold is two generations of internal hardware behind, a disparity never seen before with that line. With iOS 8 likely either (a) not being supported on the current generation of iPod touch at all or (b) being supported but at insanely slow performance, it is unclear what Apple is planning for this product's future. I suppose it is possible that next generation they'll release a model that has the A7 processor, maintaining the one-behind-current status it held in October 2012. Then again, it is also possible that they'll keep it at parity with the iPhone 6 and give it an A8 processor, albeit a potentially slower-running one. Alternatively, they could just phase the product line out given that the iPhones and iPads all run on all four of the major carriers (though I know a big argument against this is the often quoted statement that the iPod touch is the leading handheld gaming system [though it'll be hard to code for such a device going forward without updated hardware]) What do you guys think will happen to the iPod touch product line?
