    Default Will Apple make a future iPod Touch?

    With Ipod sales decreasing more and more, will Apple make a future Ipod touch? I think Tim Cook said awhile back that the Ipod business was decreasing.

    I know a lot of people who use BlackBerry devices who use iPod Touch for apps and media. So while a lot of people use their phones for media there is still a market for a Touch.

    Think they'll still make the iPod touch, there isn't a good enough reason for them to get rid of it.

    The iPod touch definitely has a market. Think of it as a iPhone sized ipad. Or maybe a way for non smart phone users to still use apps.

    We know one is coming this year. Even though they just refreshed the last gen model.

    I'm not so sure it'll be this year. They aren't really in demand.

    Apple will probably refresh the 32 & 64 GB models and leave the 16 GB as a cheap entry-level device.

    Definitely. They're not stopping iPod touches anytime soon, too.

    I think the Touch will be around for a very long while.

    They still sell a ton of them.

    I need to replace my 4gen soon and am looking at the 5th, trying to decide whether to bite now on the 5th or will the refresh updates on next gen be sufficient to justify holding on and waiting.

    Decisions .....

    Same. Unless your other iPod is broken, I would say wait until the iPod Touch 6.

    I got my 5th gen near launch day, The Source just got a shipment of 32 GB iPod touches in the night before I went so I got the colour I wanted (slate black). It's been a good little video player for me, it's thin and light so it's easy to hold and the screen was awesome compared to the 4S I had at the time when I got my iPod touch. Now I use my iPod touch for beta testing iOS.

    We are close enough to September so you could wait and see if it gets updated. Or if you can't wait get the cheap 16Gb iPod touch 5 just in case they do update. That way you haven't invested too much money either way.

    The iPods are now released in October, but I agree with what you said. If you need one that bad, just buy the cheap 16 GB and then wait for the 6th generation and buy that one.

    Don't they usually get announced during the iPhone event in September?

    I meant that the OP would know soon enough if there is going to be a newer version.

    They used to be in September, until the 5th generation iPod Touch.

    But I see what you are saying. Soon enough we'll see a new iPod Touch

    I hope they will release one with the bigger screen of the rumoured iPhone 6. As a developer I use a couple iPod Touches as dev units instead of buying a more costly iPhone. For example the iPod Touch 5th gen has the same screen as the iPhone 5 except a little slower. So if my app runs great on the iPod I know it will run as good or better on the faster iPhone.

    That would be nice. I'd even consider picking one up, even though I'm not a developer.

    Apple would not have to do much to it; just keep the same case and upgrade the SoC to A7, get the 802.11AC and that pretty much it! All Apple has to do is cut and paste a new board from the iPhone 5S components!

    Cost would be very inexpensive.

    Default Will Apple make a future iPod Touch?

    I own both a note and a iPhone. With that said I love my note for more things than my iPhone. One thing I do enjoy about the iPhone is my familiarity with the mp3 UI. I don't think it warrants me using my iPhone over my note. So when I get my insurance replacement one day I will go back to using my iPod touch as my primary media device.

    I feel like there are a lot of people like me that like the music aspect of iOS so they will continue to buy iPods.
