New iPod touch and updated iPhone 4 added to Apple database

Model numbers leaked ahead of official unveiling next week

Talk of the iPhone 5 might be rampant, but new database info suggests Apple is preparing to release three new versions of the iPod and two updated editions of the iPhone 4.

Apple’s 4 October event is edging ever closer. And with it the final lines of gossip about what to expect are becoming ever more frantic. While iPhone 5 details have been largely thrashed out, now 9to5mac says it has details of three new versions of the iPod touch and two new look iPhone 4s.

The news comes via an insider dubbed Mr X, who has access to Apple’s internal inventory. He says the updated units of the iPhone 4 will carry the code numbers N90A. One is said to have 8GB storage, confirming chatter about an entry-level version of the iPhone.

The three new iPod touches have all been slapped with the N81A code, all with a white paint job and each presumed to have different storage capacities. The black iPod touch will remain unchanged as N81.

There’s no word yet on whether the iPhone 5 has shown in the system, with Apple likely to be more careful about details surroundings its flagship release. Tell us what you think about Apple’s plans in the comments section.
