This report is based on information from Asian Supply chain checks performed by Caso and Susquehanna. Kuo’s does not show an iPod touch 6th generation release alongside many other products.
While it is possible that Apple plans to push the iPod touch 6th generation and any other new iPod models into 2015 to make it easier for consumers to spend money on an iWatch this rationale does not address the users that buy an iPod touch as a device for a child or for an adult that needs connectivity without any type of contract. This user base will not likely be able to replace an iPod with an iWatch unless they also upgrade to an iPhone 6 or some other Apple device that the watch can connect to.
