Rumor: Apple to Release Updated iPod touch Next Week – New Colors and a 64-Bit Processor

Rumor: Apple to Release Updated iPod touch Next Week – New Colors and a 64-Bit Processor

A report today claims Apple will launch an updated iPod touch on July 14th, featuring new colors, and updated internals, including a 64-bit A-series processor.

Rumor: Apple to Release Updated iPod touch Next Week - New Colors and a 64-Bit Processor

AppleInsider:

There is no word on which specific processor Apple will choose, notes French website iGen, but it is expected to be a 64-bit variant. The iPhone 5s’s A7 would seem a likely choice, which might also mean the inclusion of the M7 motion co-processor.

Currently, the iPod touch is powered by the ancient 32-bit A5 processor. It, and the A6 powered iPhone 5c, are the only iOS devices to not boast 64-bit capabilities. The 5c is widely expected to be replaced by an “iPhone 6c” model in the fall.

The iPod touch July 14 debut date was first implied by new promotional images used in iTunes 12.2. The assets indicate Apple will offer new pink, gold, and dark blue color options for the device.

Those same iTunes promotional assets also indicate Apple will also be offering the iPod Shuffle and iPod nano in the same new color schemes. Those devices are not expected to receive any updated internal components.
