When was the last iPod touch refresh?

When was the last time the iPod touch was refreshed? Do you think it's being phased out?

yes, I think it will be phased out.
Smartphones now have mostly competent musip players.
Storage cards have become cheap-ish...

Can't remember when the last refresh was, it was 2 years ago, maybe 3 years. They did add Space Grey to the lineup last year and then that 16GB model with no camera, which has since been updated and I think they recently reduced the prices on the other capacities. That's probably going to be it for now.

I'd love to see a refresh though, bring it more in line with the iPhone in terms of specs. Stick in an A7 processor, 8MP camera, Touch ID and a few other features, maybe even the newer large screens too. I could see it as a big seller for kids and teenagers who won't be getting an iPhone. Plus I'm sure it might entice a few individuals from competing platforms to get an iOS device as a secondary if they already have a phone.

But that's just my two pennies worth, doubt it'll happen. Shame really, I still think there's life in the iPod touch if only they'd do a radical update, they'd sell a ton coming up to Christmas.
