We know that iPod is a special product for Apple, but people focous more and more on the iPhone and iPad in recent years. In fact, the iPod touch was the only iOS device to not receive internal nor cosmetic changes in 2011. However, some evidence just shows up suggesting Apple is still interested in the iPod touch and wants a future for it, according to 9to5Mac.
"According to a file inside of an internal iOS 5.1 build, Apple is working on a fifth-generation iPod touch that is labeled iPod 5,1 internally. We haven't heard any specifics regarding the new iPod touch hardware, but the jump from 4,1 (the current internal iPod touch label) to 5,1 indicates major internal changes, at the very least. Perhaps Apple is finally moving to an A5 or A5X-like chip in the iPod touch. After all, the iPod touch is one of the most popular gaming devices on the market, and Apple's dual-core iOS device processors offer top-of-the-line graphics performance."
The site theorizes that we could see a new iPod touch alongside a new iPhone in fall. In its last reported quarter, Apple sold 15.4 million iPods, a 21 percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter.
