“Apple could be preparing to refresh its aging iPod lineup with new colors, according to a new image found inside of yesterday’s iTunes 12.2 update for Apple Music,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.
“With the new update, when a user plugs in an iPod for the first time, the above image showcasing a dark blue iPod touch, a gold iPod nano, and a dark pink iPod shuffle appear,” Gurman reports. “None of those iPod color options currently exist, indicating that Apple could be preparing to refresh its line with those richer tones. Interestingly, the Touch lacks a hole for the camera loop.”
Gurman reports, “It is possible that the image is simply a Photoshop error, which would not be unprecedented, but our look into the previous version of iTunes, version 12.1.2, indicates that the image is actually new, which means that it was intentionally designed.”

MacDailyNews Take: Those are actually some nice colors! Perhaps, give the lack of the camera loop on the iPod touch image, some of these iPods come with some hardware improvements, too?
