Apple tends to come out with a new iPhone every year, so it’s hardly surprising that we’re starting to hear rumors about this year’s model. But the folks at 9 to 5 Mac received a tip that the next iPhone could have a new processor and 1GB of RAM, or twice as much as the iPhone 4S.
They also found evidence in a build of the iOS 5.1 operating system that Apple is working on a new iPod touch.
While there’s no solid information about the new iPod touch, there’s a good chance Apple will upgrade the processor.
Right now the iPod touch is the only current-generation iOS product with a single core Apple A4 processors. All current iPhone and iPad models have faster dual-core A5 or A5x processors.
A faster chip would give the little device a little more gaming power, which could come in handy since the iPod touch is one of the world’s most popular handheld gaming devices.
Apple typically rolls out a new iPod touch every year, but the only change between the company’s 2010 and 2011 iPod touch lineup was the addition of a model with a white case, so the iPod touch is probably overdue for some sort of update.
