No, the iPod Touch Won’t Receive an Update This Year

Unless you consider an additional color that brings the iPod touch in line with the palette offered on the iPhone 5c, it doesn’t appear that Apple’s touch-enabled iPod will receive any kind of update this year.

That isn’t particularly surprising — the iPod touch seems to be on a bi-annual update cycle, as it also languished the year the iPhone 4S was released. As iPod sales shrink and become far less important for Apple’s bottom line, the lack of an update is understandable.

Still, it brings a small tear to my eye to know that I won’t be able to bask in the OpenGL 3.0 goodness of the A7 chip on the iPod touch anytime soon.
