The price of the iPod will remain unchanged with 16GB at $199, while the newly introduced 64GB and 126GB will be priced at $299 and $399 respectively.
As indicated earlier, the iPod nano and iPod shuffle will get a host of new colors. The colors that are expected to be added to the line-up are gold, dark blue, silver, space gray, red and bright pink.
Apple last updated the iPod touch and iPod nano in October 2012 and the iPod shuffle in September 2010. None of this has been officially confirmed by Apple, and the company traditionally sticks to September for the unveil of its new iPods.
