As expected, Apple has today flipped the switch on the launch of its new 2015 range of iPods. Apple last paid attention to the iPod touch with an update back in 2012, so today's announcement will come as a fantastic surprise to those who want in on the iOS and Apple Music party without parting with a ton of cash for an iPhone or iPad. In addition to bumping up the iPod touch's specifications, Apple has also introduced cosmetic changes to the iPod nano and iPod shuffle for those who want portability with minimum outlay.
The iPod touch hasn't seen any love for quite a while now - two-and-a-half years, to be precise - and with the Apple Watch now at the forefront of attention, the once-revered "iPhone without the phone part" has faded into the abyss. Some have, quite naturally, tipped the demise of the iPod touch, and given that Apple sells as large a variety of iPhone as it ever has - four models with three different display sizes and price points - it's hard to argue. Rumor has it, though, that the iPod touch will be back with a bang, boasting a bumped processor, camera and other enhancements.
Apple may have killed the iPod Classic but assuming you're willing to pay a premium then you can still pick one up on eBay, but few will command fees in the region of $4,500. That makes one of the iPod auctions currently running into something rather unique.

The 5th-gen iPod touch complete with the iPhone5-esque 4-inch display may finally have been released, but if you're looking for an iOS experience for a dirt-cheap price, you may want to consider the slightly older - but no less exciting - iPod touch 4G. Right now at Apple, you can grab yourself an iPod touch 8GB refurbished for a mere $129, and with an A4 processor and Retina display, it's one of the best deals on the interwebs right now.
It's been an extremely busy week so far for Apple, with the announcement of the iPad mini, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, an all-new line-up of iMacs and Mac minis, and the surprising introduction of the fourth-generation iPad. Not wanting to take their foot off the gas, the company has now announced their Q4 earnings of 2012, and once again, it makes extremely pleasant reading for company executives and shareholders.
Ever since rumors first sprang up with regards to the smaller iPad, or "iPad Mini," as it is being unofficially dubbed, one of the immediate questions springing to the minds of many has been "what about the iPod touch?" After all, the so-called "iPhone without the phone part" has been the only device offering the iOS experience minus the iOS price, but with the iPad Mini combining the lower-end cost with a larger screen and a set of features easily matching the iPod touch, is there really a place left in the market for it?
