Apple developing 7th-Generation iPod Touch, 2019 iPhones Could switch to USB-C

According to a new report from supply chain blog Macotakara, Apple could be in the process of developing a a 7th-generation iPod touch. Further, the report says the 2019 iPhone might make the jump to USB-C, just like the 2018 iPad Pros.

Several suppliers at CES 2019 reportedly told Mac Otakara that a 7th-generation iPod touch “might” be in development as a replacement for the 6th-generation version.

Mac Otakara‘s report also suggests that the next-generation iPhone coming in 2019 could potentially include a USB-C port.

Further, Macotakara says that “those who are working on” the iPhone’s USB-C transition indicate it has not yet reached the reference design stage. This could suggest that the transition will miss the 2019 iPhone refresh. Macotakara has a decent track record, but like most supply chain sources, can struggle with details such as timing.
