Apple will announce a new version of its iPod touch during the first week of October when it takes the wraps off of the next-generation iPhone, according to MacRumors. Apple will not redesign or revamp the iPod touch in any major way. It will instead launch a white model of the popular multimedia player with slight tweaks to the ambient light sensor and with the addition of an oleophobic screen coating. Parts for the new iPod touch first surfaced in July, and the images suggested that the overall industrial design would remain untouched. Concord Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also said he expected Apple to hold off updating the hardware of the iPod touch this year due to a tight supply chain and continued demand for the iPhone and iPad. The white iPod touch is expected to hit the market in mid-October.
