It's all about the iPhones, iPads and Macs -- this leaves us questioning what might have happened to Apple's iPod touch line, now speculated to bring its 6th generation version. Customs Today wrote that the device was initially rumored to take off its wraps during Apple's October event. Of course, we didn't see such thing, and now we're up to play guessing games as usual.

Let's pick the cards.

Stabley Times reported that the new iPod touch is long overdue -- it should have arrived in September along with the new iPhones, if the Cupertino giant's traditional patterns were followed. The outlet believed the delay has something to do with size. Allegedly, the performance of larger iPhones determines the company's move in deciding how large the next iPod touch will be.

Top speculators have been eyeing a March 2015 release for the iPod touch 6, said Air Herald. The source mentioned that the device has been used only to tease consumers back in October!

Yet Customs Today noted that Apple has only been dealing with technical issues. The outlet said the device hits shelves "soon," and we can only hope that it isn't too late. Could a Christmas release be possible?

After all, BREATHEcast said the iPod touch 6 may arrive before 2015. Such speculation is expected if Apple announces the device prior to Thanksgiving. Take note: "before 2015" means anytime between this writing and exploding firecrackers. It's just, soon!

But what does the sixth-generation iPod touch actually offer?

Well that we cannot confirm, but as usual, whispers are whirling everywhere. Air Herald mentioned stories believing that the device could sport a 4-inch Retina Display (not very impossible), dual-core A5 processor (familiar?), radio app, larger storage options and Apple Pay. The iPod touch 6 is obviously expected to be more affordable than the iPhone 6.

But Customs Today reported that the device may pack a whopping A9 microprocessor while KDrama Stars noted that integration of Touch ID technology is likely.

On the other hand, Trusted Reviews listed desirable things to see in the iPod touch 6. These include A7 processor, iPhone 6-like display, 32 GB basic storage, "really good" camera and "decent" earbuds.

From our current information, it appears that discrepancy in speculations comes in terms of the device's processor. Let it be known (again) that the iPod touch is not an iPhone -- the device functions more of a portable media companion, although it shares some similarities in terms of OS functionality.
