Apple rumored to hold August event to unveil new iPod lineup

Apple logoApple could hold its iPod-centric event sooner than the expected September timeframe, with an event rumored to take place either Aug. 16 or 17.

Citing a "reliable source within Apple," Brazilian publication MacMagazine reported Friday (via Google Translate) that Apple will hold an event either Aug. 16 or 17, a Monday or Tuesday. That would be sooner than the September timeframe in which many have expected that Apple will introduce its new iPod lineup.

The publication said that the music and media-centric event will be used to introduce a new iPod touch with a front-facing camera for FaceTime, as well as a rear camera with flash for taking pictures. It also said that Apple will add a gyroscope to the next-generation iPod touch -- all features found in the recently released iPhone 4.

The alleged August event would coincide with a recent rumor that suggested Apple would launch an updated version of its iLife suite this month. That report alleged that all of the applications -- iPhoto, GarageBand and iWeb -- would be upgraded to 64 bits, and that a new "mystery" application would be a part of the package. It also claimed that iDVD would not be included, and instead would be made available for download like iMovie HD.

Rumors of Apple's upcoming iPod refresh have gained considerable steam this week, with rumored products, illustrations of third party cases, and even purported components of Apple's next-generation iPod touch surfacing online.
