New iPod touch tomorrow?

Any chance of seeing a new iPod touch tomorrow? It's been a while!

Rumours suggest a yes... but rumours not so long ago suggested "no more iPod Touch" what with most people owning competent musicplayers in the shape of phones....
But I reckon we'll see new iPods. Prolly 4inchers.

...oh, I have doubts. Not about the iPod Touch landing, but as to whether it'll land tomorrow.
The 'new' iPhone is not a minor (oops) overhaul like the 3GS or the 4S. It'll be a big deal.
Despite all the leaks THERE will be a lot of ground to be covered (not just the phone itself, but new accessories due to the changed connector etc). Additionally, we'll see new services:
new maps app; new youtube...sorry: NO youtube app. And doubtlessly more cloud stuff.
So, adding a new range of iPods? AND the rumoured iPad Mini?
Nope. I don't think so. At least one of those things will be launched at a different event - IF at all.

Another thing: the rumours and leaked parts - and, indeed a whole iPhone "5" allegedly smuggled out of the Foxconn fortress suggest we know almost every little thing about the new iPhone. BUT: how come we've seen next to zero leaks about those new iPods?
And apart from a few bits, we've seen very little of the iPad Mini. No accessories etc etc....

All in all, I think tomorrow may play out differently to what many 'insiders' expect.

Sounds like you almost arguing with yourself in those posts. They are more regularly launched in October anyway aren't they.
If the ipods are that similar in appearance maybe we wouldn't notice initially, maybe there's less money to be made smuggling ipod parts out.

I see google just put out the new youtube app fwiw seems to be rather better.

Yes, but the new tube app is currently not available for the iPad. There are better ways to enoy YT on iDevices, anyway imho

Well they aren't launching the new ipad tomorrow ;)
Probably are better ways bet it'll be the most common one though.

True.

I forgot: there's that other rumour - the iPad Mini is to replace the iPod Touch. Ahem...

Bit retro, imagine the storage you could get on there though. :)

New but inactive links on Apple's own site apparently show new iPod Touch and new iPod Nano; and yes, the "iPhone 5"... also: "new iTunes"

Pondlife  Sep. 12, 2012 at 16:29

Hmm guess they've more time today than we thought if rolling out those today too

Though could just be the old ones with new dock connectors..

JanSt / MOD  Sep. 12, 2012 at 16:44

Nope, they'll be all new.

So was pretty much right no leaks of touch as it's broadly same as i5
