The fact that a new version of the iPod Touch was not announced at the WWDC 2015 hinted that the music device will be discontinued by Apple. However, this didn't stop hopeful reports from publishing claims and speculations that an iPod Touch 6th Generation is on its way.

Listed below are the latest rumored specs and features of the device. Note that these are all unconfirmed at the moment and Apple is yet to issue an official announcement.

Processor & Memory Space

CrossMap claimed that the reason why Apple is slow in releasing the iPod Touch 6th Gen is because the tech giant is beefing up the device's power. The iOS 9 and the A9 processor are set to be released this year, and there's a chance that Apple is delaying the new iPod Touch so it could contain the processor and its latest operating system.

However, Venture Capital Post contradicted CrossMap's claims, insisting that the iPod Touch 6th Gen will be powered by an A5 processor along with a lightning connector. Fans will also get to choose between a 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage.

Display & Design

As for the music device's display, CrossMap wrote that the iPod Touch 6th Gen will roll out in two variants: a 5-5-inch model and one with a 4.7-inch display. It is also expected to bear a design that is a crossover of the iPod Touch 5th Gen and the brand-new iPhone models.

The iPod Touch 6th Gen is expected to come in different and more assorted color variants, such as red, orange, yellow, pink, green, space gray, silver, white, and gold, the news outlet listed.

Other Features

Venture Capital Post added that the iPod Touch 6th Gen will be equipped by Apple's Retina display and a support for the Apple Pay mobile system. There are also reports that the music device will be waterproof and is compatible with the Apple Watch.

Aside from these, the news outlet noted that the gadget will have better security features, a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, improved battery life, and an 8-megapixel camera.

Price & Release Date

As per CrossMap's estimate, the iPod Touch 6th Gen is expected to be priced starting at $250 when it gets released in October or November.

There are also hearsays that the music device will launch alongside a new iPhone on Sept. 25, Venture Capital Post noted.
