Apple may launch new iPod models later today, including a gold iPod touch

Apple is set to launch a new lineup of iPods today, according to 9to5Mac sources. This new information confirms reports we've previously covered, hinting at Apple plans to roll out new iPods as early as this week. iPod nano and iPod shuffle will reportedly be receiving new color options, while the iPod touch will see upgraded internals and be made available in gold.

9to5Mac shared what they believe will be included as part of the internal upgrades for the iPod touch. According to their sources, the camera will be bumped to 8-MP, a new 64-bit chip will be installed, as well as the "M" chip from the iPhone for fitness functionality, and iOS 8.4 will be pre-loaded.

Pricing was also touched on, with the new 128GB model to be priced at $399, $299 for 64GB and $199 for 16GB. We'll be sure to keep you all posted should Apple launch the refreshed iPod lineups.
