Developers will make apps backwards compatible with iOS 6 for a long time. Most apps will still work with iOS 5 and it's been almost a year since that was discontinued. And if you make copies of your apps and don't update them, you could use the iPod as long as you want.

Rperez: define "a long time."

My iPhone (the original) stopped being supported at 3.1.3 and by the time iOS 5 came out -- about two years later -- there was basically nothing new available for it.

Presuming the original poster meant a fourth-generation iPod Touch (ie one generation behind the current model), then yes, iOS 6 is as high as he can go, and it should be good for another year or two, app-compatibility wise.

After that he'll want to slowly stop updating apps and just leave it as-is app-wise. It will probably continue to work for several years after that if he's good to it (my original iPhone still works fine, though I don't use it much anymore).

I would save the money and just wait to get a 5th generation iPod touch.
