It is now three years since Apple Inc. launched the current model of the iPod Touch in September 2012 that helped the company rise to technological supremacy. Following many changes, improvements and upgrades to the iPod Touch over the years, the company has been widely expected to launch the sixth-gen iPod Touch with further upgrades. But Apple seems to have put the iPod Touch 6G on the back burner and has been instead focusing on releasing other products, such as the new iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3.
With today's iPhones and iPads capable of performing almost all the functions of the iPod Touch, the demand for the device is virtually non-existent and it may lack a large enough customer base to warrant a new model. But Apple fans still continue to keep hopes alive for the launch of the sixth-gen iPod Touch, fuelling rumors and speculations about the iPod Touch 6G.
The latest rumors suggest that the sixth-gen iPod Touch could be launched in September 2015 and will be available in two variants - a 4.7-inch model and a 5.7-inch one. Apparently, the iPod Touch 6G will run on Apple's latest IOS 8.1.3 operating system, equipped with an improved camera and microSD capability.
It is also rumored that the iPod Touch 6G will come with improved security features, including Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and enhanced battery life. Since the Apple Watch will already be in the market when the iPod Touch 6G arrives, the devices will be compatible with each other and the sixth-gen iPod Touch will also be water resistant. The iPod Touch 6G is also expected to come in a variety of colors, such as red, yellow, silver, pink, blue and space grey.
Apple has not yet made any official announcement regarding the iPod Touch 6G which only continues to feed the sixth-gen iPod Touch rumor mill.
