Various reports are spreading the rumors that the iPod Touch will be released only by November of this year. Apparently, Apple promised the release of the device sometime last year, immediately after the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. However, it looks like Apple was too busy working on their new creation, the Apple Watch.

Apple CEO Tim Cook, compared the two devices iPod Touch 6G and Apple Watch and said that the Watch has the same ingredient that made the iPod a game changer in the music world, according to Tech Times.

Speaking at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference, Cook said, "If you think about the MP3 industry, we weren't the first company to make an MP3 player, there were lots of companies in this. They weren't used very much. They were fundamentally hard to use -- the user interface was bad and you almost needed a Ph.D. to use them. They're not memorable. I see the smart watch category very much like that. There are several things that are called smart watches, but I'm not sure you could name any. There hasn't been one that changed the way people live their lives. At Apple, that's our objective. We want to change the way you live your life," according to the Latino Post.

According to a report by Jobs N Hire, the iPod Touch is expected to come in two models, a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch along with a combination of various colors, such as pink, yellow, red, silver, blue, and space grey.

About the other specifications of the phone, reports from various sources suggest that the gadget is expected to have an A8 processor that will have features fashioned from the iPhone.
