There was a rumor previously that Apple will be launching the iPhone SE 2 at its March event but another analyst familiar with Apple has said that the Cupertino-based company will be launching a new iPod instead. It is a mystery why Apple would launch the iPod at this stage when competitors are mostly working on releasing a futuristic phone, like Samsung with the Galaxy X.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, who is a reputed leaker regarding news related to Apple, the upcoming iPod will feature a faster processor. He hasn’t commented on the design which most likely gives the hint that Apple will be opting for the conventional iPhone 5-like aesthetics for the iPod touch.

The upcoming AirPods will also feature upgraded Bluetooth connectivity.
