Recently, some sources have told AppleInsider regarding what to expect from Apple devices this month as they are anticipated to release an update.
According to this information, the probable release of the next generation iPhone device might mean to slowly extinct the classic iPod Touch, as it will only receive a white additional colored model in 2011.
This is supported by Ming Chi-Kou, Concord Securities analyst by reporting that currently on the third quarter checks on Apple devices, it showed that the company have set orders for iPod Touch white models.
Moreover, he stated that the build plans for the device have only slight changes from the previous models that were released last year.
Apparently, the white iPod Touch models has the same date of release with the iPhone 5, of which expected to take its mass production between August and September.
The iPod Touch was known to be the main and instrumental product for Apple way back in 2001.
For such a long good times, it became their leading product. But now the iPod Touch have only garnered 5% of Apple’s total revenue in the recent post of the company earnings.
However, in business nothing is personal or sentimental. It is understandable that sometimes the company must do the things they seem to be best.
In this case, iPod Touch have already been surpassed by iPad and iPhones, of which admittedly are more influential and profitable products.
This could be the reason for only slight changes on iPod Touch.
While we can’t say anything aside from what we have learned in this report, we still think that Apple might have to do their job in verifying whether it be better to elude the iPod Touch in their line of products.
