Rumours have it that the Apple iPod is not going to die without a fight. According to a report by a French website iGen, new models of Apple’s proprietary jukeboxes are set to arrive next week, the 14th of July to be precise.
According to the report, we are going to get a new range of colours, including including gold, electric blue and fuchsia, classic black, pink and gray sidereal, for the whole line of iPods: iPod touch, iPod nano and iPod shuffle, a few cosmetic updates here and there and an upgraded 64-bit processor on the iPod touch which currently houses a 32-bit A5 chipset (no spec upgrades for the smaller models).
The rumours have obviously not been confirmed by the Cupertino, but the 14 July date is based on code spotted inside the latest iTunes 12.2 software. Traditionally, the iPods have been unveiled in September.
And even though most people are using their smartphones today as music systems and jukeboxes, guess Apple is just eager to promote its music based tech after the release of Apple Music. So, if you are someone who is a lot into music related stuff, keep your eyes on the Apple Store on Tuesday.
