Apple may launch new iProducts in October.
Apple may refresh its entire range of iProducts in a single showcase.
Apple sold 7.7 million iPods, which represented a 15 percent decline compared to last year. More than half of those were iPod touches.
Apple has registered declining iPod sales. Only the iPod touch has been selling a tad stronger than its smaller siblings. Although the ubiquitous players are directly responsible for Apple’s triumphant rising around the year 2000, it appears the iPod line has finally started to lose its steam.
That’s not to say the music players aren’t still popular. The figures only suggest people have grown increasingly fond of big screens, which makes the iTouch the first candidate for an upgrade this year.
Admittedly, there have been few leaks regarding a potential refresh.
Apple is indeed preparing a smaller version of its wildly popular iPad tablet and it will launch this coming October for between $200 and $250.
Numerous earlier reports have suggested that an iPad with a 7.85-inch display will launch in the third or fourth quarter this year.
The scaled down tablet will look exactly like the current 9.7-inch iPad but smaller. It will also feature a display resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 pixels, identical to the panel on Apple’s new iPad.
The smartphone will look quite different from the current-generation iPhones (though Apple is reportedly still deciding on the final design), and it will feature a slightly-bigger display, as well as a smaller dock connector.
