New iPhone and iPod SKUs show up in Apple's inventory system

Two new iPhone and three new iPod touch SKUs are now appearing in Apple's inventory system. The new iPod touch models most likely represent the rumored white iPod Touch in 8, 32, and 64GB flavors just like its current black counterpart. The current iPod touch has the internal codename N81. These new SKUs are labeled as part number N81A which probably indicates an incremental update, or more likely, white iPod touch models.

The new iPhone SKUs appearing are labeled under the N90A codename. The current iPhone 4 is known internally as the N90 so this would most likely point to a minimally updated device. It may even indicate an 8GB version which is what Apple did when they knocked down the price of the iPhone 3GS last year. The N94 codename has appeared in the iOS SDK quite a few times and is probably the major iPhone upgrade we should hear about during the October 4th event Apple has scheduled. According to rumors, the iPhone 5 should bring with it some significant internal hardware changes so we doubt the N90A is the device we'll see on Tuesday.

What do you think we'll see come Tuesday? Just a new iPhone or white iPod Touch models as well?

We''ll Just Have to wait and see...Im although very curious whether this phone will be 4G. Now that will be a big change

Plazmic Flame says:

If you mean 4G in carrier terms, then yes it will be 4G enabled.

kch50428 says:

4G should mean LTE... the new iPhone is not LTE.

Tina says:

How you know Einstein?

Vampyrekei says:

Apparently you know more about the new iPhones than everyone else...So please, enlighten us as to what the new iPhones will and will not have....I mean, since you seem to have all the inside news.

DLUP says:

I'm glad you have a time machine and where able to go forward in time to the iPhone event.. So jealous... Unless your an Apple engineer then don't pretend to know things. What you meant to say was, " MY OPINION is the new iPhone will not be LTE"

jfabula1 says:

he is an engineer he cant just say he works in apple right now so he knows we dont know, right Mr?

Winn6449 says:

Don't want 4G. If you check, it's is not available all around the country. Just in a few areas. Got a 4G card from Verizon for my computer and it didn't work. would not even switch to 3G. Will wait on 4G.

Soopa says:

Since there is so much speculation going on, let me throw mines out there. lolz. This new iphone will have an a new re-design in comparison to the iphone 4. We well see this new iphone be re-released with better specs in 2012, most likely with 4g/LTE. There you go!! lolz.. I love speculation.

Yngwie says:

The two new iPhone SKUs better be the 32GB & 64GB. No more 16GB Apple, please !

Wee says:

Better be a huge update to iPod touch or I'll be angry.

Nick Powers says:

No surprise there. Why would they add the new models (i.e. N94) to inventory prior to the announcement? Apple knows not to feed the bloggers.

jfabula1 says:

oh yes they do, brilliant marketing for apple. when they play everybody dance LOL

dwinsmith says:

I would say more likely N90A is to take the place of the 3GS 8GB.

DeLeon Hughes says:

The new iPod Touch doesn't come in an 8GB flavor. Just 16, 32 and 64. Just saying.

Mephisto says:

Yes it does. Just saying...

MuthaFU says:

I cant stand this site for about a week or two before apple has a press conference everyone just becomes retarded and starts argueing calling eachother trolls and fanboys. I can't wait to beat up one of pricks and taking your iphone5.
