On Wednesday, Apple released iTunes 12.2 with a new streaming service Apple Music. The developers, who have studied the program code, found a hint of the upcoming debut of new models of iPods. Apparently, we are talking about the modifications in the new bright colours – pink, gold and dark blue.
In recent years, sales of iPods continue to fall in the fourth quarter of 2014 fiscal year, Apple sold just 2.6 million players and received $410 million profit. With market players displace smartphones, not less convenient for listening to music. There were rumors that Apple intends to and does waive sales media players.
Finding developers refutes such assumptions – Apple is preparing an update to the series. However, how important the upgrade is still unknown. If company a sense of release, iPod nano 8G or 4.7 inch iPod touch 6G? Perhaps in Cupertino decided to update the model in connection with the launch of Apple Music. Streaming service allows to stream music over the Internet and save the content in the memory of mobile devices. This scenario does not exclude the use of iPod: the user can download the content from Apple Music while in a Wi-Fi network, then continue listening to music in offline mode.
Rumors about the next generation iPod touch first appeared before the worldwide developers conference WWDC in April of this year. There is speculation that the device will be a hybrid of iPod touch fifth generation flagship smartphone iPhone with emphasis on the musical component. The cost of the gadget will vary from $250 to $300.
Experts believe that the new generation iPod touch, iPod nano and iPod shuffle will be presented along with the flagship smartphone iPhone 6s. Official comments from Apple is not followed.
