An icon returns: is the iPod making a comeback?

It’s been almost three years since the last iPod was launched, so you’d be forgiven for thinking Apple has ditched the device that ignited its success.

According to 9to5Mac, looking deep into iTunes 12.2’s coding will reveal images showing the different iPods in new colours.

All three iPods – the Shuffle, Nano and Touch – have three colours; gold, dark blue and dark pink shades. There’s nothing in the code to suggest that the music players have been given major upgrades.

Although Apple hasn’t officially confirmed anything, Slash Gear reports that new iPods with upgraded hardware and smaller internal storage could arrive on July 14. According to Slash Gear, Apple Music is the reason for these upgrades.

The decrease in storage capacity means that these devices could be cheaper and could tempt more users who are after an affordable standalone music player.

Again, nothing has been officially confirmed by Apple, but keep a lookout just in case these rumours are true.
