A snap of the back of the chip shows that the voltage will be between 5-12. According to Mashable, this is the likely format for their upcoming wireless technology. 

In other not-so-exciting Apple news, however, the tech giants have just announced that they will be discontinuing the iPod nano and shuffle. 

According to reports from Bloombergyou can no longer buy these products online and they'll soon be discontinued in Apple stores too. 

Apple has stated that they're aiming to "simplify" their iPod range. 

“Today, we are simplifying our iPod lineup with two models of iPod touch now with double the capacity starting at just $199 ($249 AUD) and we are discontinuing the iPod shuffle and iPod nano,” they said in a statement. 

But, hey, this could lead to one heck of a sale?
