It might not mean that we will get video playback on the new 6th generation iPod Nano but this code hints towards it. It was discovered by Erica Sadun from TUAW, Even if it doesn’t turn out that video support is turned on at some point it might be nice for the device to be able to playback video, even if it is on such a small screen.
Earlier today this screenshot was captured of the Apple UK website, stating that iOS 4.1 will arrive on the 8th September, it has now reverted back to the Coming Soon message that we find on the US website. This likely means that it’s also the day when the new iPods are released seeing as the touch uses iOS 4.1.
Less than a week before an Apple event is set to take place, cases for devices which have been rumored to be featured at the event appear online. The picture comes courtesy of Chinese case retailer X-Doria. The image seems to show what appears to be a 4th generation iPod Touch, which is rumored to have the front facing camera built-in for FaceTime.
The second case is said to be for the iPod Nano 6th generation, but it could easily be a case for a new iPod shuffle. It also appears to match a 1.7 inch Apple touchscreen that turned up in Taiwan.
The September event usually revolves around music and the iPod family so we know there’s updates coming just not sure on which devices.
