We may not get to see the iPad Mini launching with the iPhone 5, but we may get to see a new line of iPods.
According to 9to5Mac, at Apple Inc.(NASDAQ:AAPL)’s event next week on September 12, a string of new iPods are likely to be present.
"Details on the changes coming in these new iPods are currently scarce, but we believe that there will be at least two new/updated iPod lines and possible a third,' it said.
While all of the iPods are supposed to come in multiple colours, one of them will come in two sizes while the other two will be with single storage capacity.
"With the current iPod Nanos and iPod shuffles both available in multiple colours (and with the Nano currently available in two capacities and the shuffle in one), we think it is likely that new iPod Nanos and iPod shuffles are launching next week."

"However, it is possible that there is a third line as well (that, too, comes in multiple colours). With the iPod touch currently available in two colours and three capacities (black/white, 8GB, 32GB, 64GB), we don’t believe the iPod touch is the third line that comes in multiple colours."
Apple is not expected to club the iPad Mini with the iPhone, because both are iconic products and the company would not want to dilute the brand equity of either.
However it is a moot point whether the company will be launching a new iPod Touch next week. A new upgraded iPod Touch is expected this year but when exactly is not clear.
