New iPods, iPhones and iPads rumored

iLounge is reporting that they have inside information about brand new models for the iPods, iPhones and iPads from Apple. These products are said to be releasing in late 2010 and early 2011.

The rumored details that there is going to be new iPods on sale as early as this month and as late as next month. There will be 3 new revisions for the music players. One of which is a new version of the iPod Nano, another is a revision of the iPod touch which may incorporate the new changes in the iPhone 4, and another is a 1.7” touchscreen replacement for the iPod Shuffle.

iLounge is also claiming new information about an upcoming iPad mini, with a screen that may be as small as 7”, they have created a mock up image which you can see below. As well as this, they are stating that Apple has moved the release date of the new iPhone forward because of the antennae issues. It is said to be releasing as early as January and will be the full fifth generation iPhone.

Lastly, they are reporting that their source has info on the new iPhone 4 bumpers. These bumpers will be less expensive version of the current bumpers, to replace the current ones in September. This way saving more money, but still supplying the consumer with a free fix for the issue involving the antenna.

These must be taken with a 'grain of salt' as iLounge said, but if they are true, we will be seeing the new iPods very soon.

apple doesn't give a **** if you just bought a new phone, cause they know you'll just buy the next one. I think they have proved this fact!

if they release iphone 5 the iphone 4's will become cheap which is good for me but i do feel sorry for people who had bought the previous
(secretly shouting in head: YEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSS)

I can totally get this....A fix for the poor reception issue and a way not to **** off recent purchasers of the iPhone 4 who just signed contracts through AT&T......a Verizon iPhone+ LMAOROFL

I'm happy with my ipod nano 8gig. Doesn't need a
revamp or anything - its a wonderful little machine.


I'm hoping there's no major changes for the iPod nano. The current shape and styling is fine.


I especially hope, whatever Apple is planning for the iPod nano, doesn't involve something
like the volume control only available on the earphone lead, meaning you can't use your
own earphones, and forced to use the crappy sub-standard ones supplied by Apple.

that's hard to do unless they also remove the click wheel, in which case it would be left to be an oversized Shuffle.

The Nano could still get a slightly better screen (16:9 anyone?), support for HD output with another dongle (720p would be great, I've been using the 480p output for a couple years) and even finally get a storage bump to 32gb. Other than that, it's a perfect gadget.

I wouldn't be upset if they release a new iPhone in January. I'll still enjoy my iPhone 4, as I have had 0 issues with it. Sure, I can purposefully deathgrip it to signal oblivion if I'm at 3 bars or lower, but in practice I haven't had signal issues. On the contrary, the data connection is screaming fast even at 1 bar 3G.

I'm tires of people bitching about new products making their current models "obsolete". It is such a ridiculous sentiment, honestly. The features you purchased are still there and working for you.

A 7" iPad may sell well if they bring it in at a good price point. They have the edge in the eMagazine market and ebooks work well too. I imagine this time next year you will see ipads at $299 through $599.

+100
The minute a product is released it is on its decline. The next version is already in the works to replace it. Be so many people seem to forget this.

Actually, thou on the surface it seems unlickly an iPhone 5 will be here in January, it does makes sense in terms of supply and demand.

Currently they release iPhones in Summer, and therfore there is allot of people that signup new contracts upon release at the same time.

If they release an iPhone 5 in January then they won't have the huge demand like they have now and in a few years they will be having half signing up in January and Half in June/July.

This would help big time with getting the supply issues sorted.

I still think its highly unlikely thou.

There's really nothing to worry about when it comes to a new iPhone, because the iPhone holds a great resell value. Jailbreak, unlock, and sell your current iPhone to get a free upgrade.

When are we gonna see a refresh/update for the iPod classic?? A 250 or 320GB iPod would be great.. Could care less if it was a touch screen..

The new iPhone is probably the white version...if they figured out the light leak issue. It would be stupid to release a totally new phone this soon. That would mean Apple is admitting failure with the iPhone4 and of course Apple never fails at anything....

folks,don't easily get fool by the iphone and ipad. More a less only the ipod is consider to be accurate to have some new version or update. Nothing much else to get over excited. The current ipad 9.7 screen size is more logical. If it get reducing the size that will not benefits much on it...the webpage is sitting quite well with the current ipad s.size

They should just release iPhone 4.1 with the antenna fix and that's enough. If they get iPhone 5 too soon a lot of people is going to get mad. Apple is free to do so but they will screw up their loyal customers that save up for an upgrade in the Summer period.

"This changes everything, again, again and again....Oh and again..."

I am not an Apple hater, neither am I a fan boy. I have a MacBook Pro and an iPhone 4.

They may launch a 7" screen iPad late on this year. But we will see a 2nd Gen iPad with the little camera add-on, next year near march.

I can see a 7" version of the iPad coming out sometime in Nov. time frame. Just in time for
the shopping craze ... Black Friday ... An updated version of the original iPad with a cam and
microSD slot could happen in 2011.

An a version in the iPhone 4 to improve the antenna issue for next year ... sound possible.
I would call it the iPhone 4.1 with some coating over the antenna.

They really didn't have to make a mock-up of a 7" iPad. There are plenty of 7" Chinese Android tablets around that copy the iPad styling, they could have just used one of those.

Here is the Eken M002 : http://images.wikio.com/images...ch-wifi-google-android.jpeg

And I really don't see why people would be outraged over a new model iPhone in January. While Apple has previously kept to a 1 year timetable for phone releases, that's hardly standard for the smartphone industry. Some companies crank out new models every 3 or 4 months.

A update to the iPhone 4?
What could they possibly do? Antenna and proximity sensor fix, facetime over 3G, game center... and a 64gb version?

Unless its something remarkable, then there is no reason for a iPhone 5 yet. Im calling a bluff on that - at least.

The iPad, well thats another story. It needs upgrades/fixing in every aspect of the thing.

Oh come on ppl! Who believes this crap? Apple has a standard timetable for its releases.. iPhone has been releasing since 2007 in summer.. What's the reason for that to change?

As for iPod touches - ipads, we may see minor updates -which is usual with apple- but not the improvements iLounge mentions.. I thick they're jut exaggerating..

Some of it seems a little fare fetched to me. I am expected a new iPod touch based off the iPhone 4 hardware to be announced/released around September though. iPad mini...really? seems a somewhat pointless device. New nano and shuffle are possible, the current versions have been around for a bit now and due soon for a refresh. iPhone 5 by Jan? that is ridiculous, imagine the outrage from people who bought an iPhone 4! I know I'd be pretty annoyed, I mean I understand technology changes rapidly but that is pushing it.

iPad mini would essentially overlap what is currently out there from Apple. iPads are essentially bigger iPhones/iPods, a smaller one would be the same right?

That screen is 1.18" SQUARE, according to your link. Pythagoras tells us that the screen would then be 1.66" diagonal (close enough to 1.7"), which is how most people measure screens.

Ah, missed the square bit. Just figured they measured it how any other screen was.

I'd love an iPod touch with a 3g connection like the iPad. Maybe even a GPS chip (navigon/tomtom). I'd buy it in a heartbeat. People say it'd be too similar to the iPhone, but the iPod Touch is already similar to begin with. AT&T probably won't mind the extra subscriptions either.

If they put an iPod with 3G, it will be the same as an iPhone, difference will be that you could call using the regular phone using the iPhone, because VoIP would be possible, hence, making calls using the iPod Touch possible.

So, obvious man is obvious?

True, but wifi already makes this possible on current models.

A 1.7" touchscreen iPod Shuffle? That's even crazier than a new iPhone in January. That's far too small. They should go back to basics and just lower the price and bring back the buttons.

or just go back to be being a "software company"

The shuffle doesn't need more than like 3 buttons so 1.7" should be fine. I think the point of this move is so that you can see the information on the song you are listening to rather than that stupid voice thing they have now.

When was Apple a "software company"? They've always been a "hardware company".

Actually they've always been both.

iPhone 5 in January?? Crazy!!!

I say that purely on the current release schedule of iPhones. Most people are either in a 12/24 month contract, ending in late June. If it's a minor model update then it'll be fine, but I just can't help feeling that current iPhone 4 users are going to be left in the lurch.

If I were Apple I'd release a 64 GB iPhone 4 and with it quietly make some antenna adjustments, keeping the same "iPhone 4" name.

EXACTLY!... there is no way they could do that to people who just purchased the 4 not even 5 months back (from Jan).. this is absurd!

They already do that with iMacs... Why not with the iPhone?

Uhh because they're not under contract with a iMac.. =)

You fail. Anyone ever bought a carrier subsidized iMac? There's a reason for contracts. Buy a commitment free iPhone and you are free to do whatever you want after that.

They'll do what they done with the first iPhone when it come out and people bought the entry 4Gb one that was quickly discontinued and the 8Gb bumped down. Refund a apple store credit for the value of the phone.
