Apple may not be done with the iPod Touch, the only iPod product that the company sells. The most recent iPod Touch arrived almost two years ago with an A10 Fusion SoC and 2 GB of RAM, so it needs updating, or retiring.

Now, initial rumours have appeared online about a new iPod Touch, although they have not been independently verified. Hence, we would recommend treating this as a rumour rather than a leak, even with the renders that Steve Moser published, courtesy of @AppleLe257.

According to Moser, Apple will release a new iPod Touch in the autumn. If that is the case, then we would not be surprised if Apple times the next iPod Touch's release or launch for October 23, the iPod's 20th anniversary.

Based on the images provided, the next iPod touch will resemble the iPhone SE, albeit one crossed with an iPhone 12. The headphone jack remains missing though, as is a front-facing camera, apparently. Instead, the iPod Touch will have a Lightning connector a near bezel-less display. To reiterate, these are rumours, so the final design may not necessarily be completely as it is shown here.
