    I doubt they'll stop making them, and if they do, they'll make a similar product to replace it .

    I hope the Classic never gets dropped. I don't have one, but it has a nice little niche in the iPod lineup.

    It focuses only on iTunes content and storage...no other iPod does that.

    Yes, I'm 99% sure we will see a new touch this year. Apple wouldn't go more than a year without updating their most popular iPod model. Even if they don't release it alongside the iPhone 5/4S, it'll be out by Christmas.

    If they do release an iPod touch this year I doubt it'll be as the same time as the iPhone. They have had so much trouble producing enough screens for one product never mind the two of them unless they change one of the screens to a different kind there's no way they'll be able to produce enough for the products.

    There will be one, a better question would be what updates will be in the next one. At this point, there is no significant competition to the touch, it would be hard pressed for Apple to innovate.

    I agree. Unless there are significant updates to the 5th gen I don't see a reason to upgrade from my 4th gen.

    I know this sorta seems off topic, but what are the chances of the iPod nanos having wi-fi/wireless sync?

    And yeah, I believe the iPod line will be refreshed by the holidays. :D

    I wouldn't expect much besides a capacity update. If it was going to be more than that I think we would have been seeing some more rumors about it.

    I will upgrade even if the only change is the back!I HATE IT!But I'm sure we will also see
    • A5
    • Ram upgrade
    • Better camera maybe 2-3MPX
    • Hope for a different back
    • If the iPhone 5 screen is bigger then also the iPod touch's screen will be bigger
    Who knows? Only Apple

    99% chance ipods and iphone will be released in September.

    It will the congest the news but it does take several months for the news to get out that ipods have been refreshed and the general public purchases materials after seeing them in real life.

    Capacity update? You mean going to 128 GB?

    Wouldn't that make the classic useless though.

    After a full update last year (camera, sensors,retina display) We all should expect a minor update but Apple should be upgrading the mediocre camera.

    A5,
    1080p,
    Redesign of back,
    more RAM,
    IPS display

    We can only hope that Apple would include some of these additional upgrades.

    I hope they don't stop making them until the iPod touch 4g can't support further updates. I want to get as mny updates onto this thing as I can.

    There's always something missing that will come out with the next update. Sometimes, they just advertise the iOS update. Might be like the 2nd to 3rd gen update where the 8gb got the boot too.

    Probably around the same time the iPhone 5 is released, I guess.
