Apple is apparently gearing up to release the 6th generation of its iPod Touch music player, if rumors are to be believed.
Several reports are circulating in the media about the possible features of the successor to the iPod Touch 5, which was released in 2012.
Master Herald reported that the rumored IPod Touch 6 will be released in two versions a 4.7-inch screen size version and a 5.5-inch display size variant. Both will be fitted with Apple’s Retina display as well as include support for the Apple Pay mobile payment system.
CrossMap also said that the iPod Touch 6 will be fitted with an A9 processor and will have a “lightening connector.” In addition, Crossmap indicated that this new iPod will have a thinner body and will have a “colorful plastic back” case.
The iPod Touch 6 will be priced between $250 to $300, the report revealed.
As with most devices Apple will be releasing this year, the sixth generation iPod is going to be powered by iOS 9, the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system. Buyers could also choose from versions with either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, the Gospel Herald added.
The Gospel Herald speculated that the next-generation music player from Apple is going to have a waterproof casing, and a Touch ID fingerprint sensor as well. The publication said that the iPod Touch 6 could also have an 8-megapixel camera.
There has been no official announcement on the release date, but Stabley Times hinted that Apple could release the iPod Touch 6th generation together with the iPhone 6S in September of this year.
The Latinos Post also reported on rumors that Apple could probably release details about the iPod Touch 6th generation in this year’s World Wide Developers Conference that is taking place June 8 to 12.
