Apple has introduce iPod Shuffle original in January, 2005 which was it’s first release. Since after that Apple has launched three models each year. After 3 Years of first release, Apple had launched iPod Shuffle 2nd Generation at September 9, 2008 while 3rd Generation was launched in March 11, 2009. Apple has released new models with updated performance every year till 2010 which was last release year of iPod Shuffle 4th Generation. Now it has been completing 2 years from last release. We have great expectation that Apple will release iPod Shuffle 5th Generation in next couple of months at September 2012.
Apple have introduced lot of faster and best performer processor in iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad. It may be possible that apple take iPod Shuffle to the next stage with latest processor technology which is best for iPod Shuffle. Till yet Apple is using Samsung ARM processor in previous models.
2nd Gen iPod Shuffle had 1GB of storage capacity and user was able to store 240 to 500 hundred songs in it while 3rd Gen iPod Shuffle had 2GB of storage and User can easily store 1000 songs in the flash storage memory. At the time of 4th Generation Apple hadn’t mentioned the song capacity that how much songs can be store in 2GB Flash memory. What would be in 5th Generation iPod Shuffle? Would it support 4GB or 8GB storage Capacity?
Battery backup time is significantly increased since first release. 2nd Generation iPod Shuffle could run at list 12 hours while iPod Shuffle 4G can run up to 15 hours. We hope iPod Shuffle 5th Generation would have at least 24 hours of battery backup time.
We have seen increment in dimension over last few releases and so expecting Apple will launch best iPod Shuffle as 5G at September 2012.
iPod Shuffle 4G has Voice over technology which is similar to Siri but not Siri, Apple need to add some incredible technology to make popular iPod Shuffle in the iPod series.
Normally Apple has launched all it’s model in particular series in 2GB with $49 tag price. If this time iPod Shuffle will be released with 8GB or 16GB then it may be somehow costly up to $99 to $149 based on Storage of the device.
What do you think about future release and features of iPod Shuffle next come out? What will be the features and what do you want to see in it? Please give your comments and rumors.
