Apple drops iPod prices in Australia


Apple has quietly dropped prices across its iPod lines in Australia. The iPod shuffle has dropped $4 to $65, the 8GB iPod nano has dropped $20, to $179, while the 16GB model has seen a $10 price reduction, to $219. Finally, the iPod touch has seen a $30 price decrease on the 8GB model, a $29 decrease on 32GB units, and a $50 decrease on the 64GB model, bringing the prices to $259, $349, and $449, respectively. All prices mentioned above are in Australian dollars.

Update: SetteB.IT notes that Apple has also dropped the price of the iPod classic, from AUD$329 to AUD$299.

Eh, the price drop makes sense considering it’s almost time for a iUpdate with new iPods and iPhone 5 (unless it’s delayed).

I read an article showing a back case for the iPod Nano 7th Generation (current generation is the 6th) and it has a hole for the camera.

So basically, Apple dropped the prices so more people will buy the current generation versions of the iPods and then Apple will announce and release the new iPods screwing all the people who gave in to the price drop.

It’s still almost six months until the next gen iPods are released.

This price drop probably has more to do with the US to Aussie exchange rate than anything else.
