iPod Touch 6G to be Release in October, New Features to include Touch ID, Apple Pay
According to a report by KpopStarz, the 6th Generation iPod Touch is set to be released in October 2014, a month following the release of the iPhone 6. The current model, iPod Touch 5th Generation, was released also a month after Apple unveiled the iPhone 5.
Last September 10, two models of the new iPhones were introduced-the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, and rumors have begun circulating that the next iPod will not be far behind.
Tech observers believe that the iPod Touch 6G would not veer away from the looks of the current iPod, though there isn't any updates or official announcements yet from Apple. Christian Post even noted that Apple may not even release a new iPod and may be looking forward towards developing a different device since iPod sales have recently declined.
Christian Today on the other hand believed that the iPod Touch 6G would have the new features of the recently unveiled iPhone 6, which include the upcoming iOS 8 operating system, set to be released this fall.
the iPod 6G could also carry new features like the Touch ID, Apple's fingerprint security feature, and even Apple Pay, a newly launched payment system that allows users to pay with their device by simply hooking up their credit card information to the iPod. All of these new features are for increase security and convenience of the user. Moreover, if rumors are to be believed, the iPod Touch 6G is designed in such a way that it will complement the recently released iPhone 6. This is due in part to boost the decline in sales and popularity of the device.
If rumors are to be believed, the iPod Touch 6G might be launched simultaneously with the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 on an upcoming Apple event.
