In its attempt to boost the sales, bring up the profits and revamp its image, Apple is getting ready to release a new batch of iPods. The devices are expected no later than tomorrow, although Apple removed the iPod from its quarterly sales reports six months ago.
Ever since the iPhone has become this all-encompassing device, the iPod stood in shade. Once, the most popular music listening device could sell no less than 20 million units in four months only. The iPod is nevertheless extremely important for the Apple giant, in order to provide a full ecosystem experience. One of the most prolific tech companies is set to attract people into its exclusive software ecosystem and does it all good, as results show. We are not sure about the Apple Watch yet, but iPhone 6S will soon be released to save its face.
Apple sells a lot of image and one can see that in the upcoming iPod models, that will be released in various color alternatives.
The expected launch will include iPod Touch, iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle in classic black, gold, pink, gray, fuchsia and electric blue. For those who are nostalgic over the times when listening to music on the iPod was cool, news regarding the upcoming release come as highly entertaining.
Better hardware and upgraded processors are the main highlight when it comes to the iPod but we would love it if they could also feature a fingerprint sensor.
Besides the actual release, Apple’s iPods may be the first step towards music streaming integration. The tech giant has previously announced that they are interested in the business and will most probably become the main competitor of Spotify, somewhere in the near future.
Back to the iPod, a wireless charger would make things much easier on music listeners. Charging our iPods is always a challenge, as we need that USB cable support that sometimes proves to be out of reach. However, in spite of all the wishes, trials and tribulations, the Apple story goes further by looking a bit over the shoulder and reminding itself that there’s some things in the past that are still worth to use for a better future.
