“While the new iPhone will likely not share the stage with a smaller iPad at next week’s Apple event (the smaller iPad is rumored to be launching in October), a string of new iPods will likely be present. Details on the changes coming in these new iPods are currently scarce, but we believe that there will be at least two new/updated iPod lines and possibly a third,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.
“All these new lines will come in multiple colors, one of the lines will come in two size capacities, and the other two lines will come in a single storage capacity,” Gurman reports. “With the current iPod nanos and iPod shuffles both available in multiple colors (and with the nano currently available in two capacities and the shuffle in one), we think it is likely that new iPod nanos and iPod shuffles are launching next week.”
Gurman reports, “However, it is possible that there is a third line as well (that, too, comes in multiple colors). With the iPod touch currently available in two colors and three capacities (black/white, 8GB, 32GB, 64GB), we don’t believe the iPod touch is the third line that comes in multiple colors… We’re not sure what the third line is (yet), but we speculate that it may have to do with a possibly upcoming Apple device [for] which case moldings have begun floating around.”
