Analysts at Credit Suisse First Boston expect more changes in Apple's iPod range later this summer.

They expect the company will improve its iPod shuffles with higher capacity "and functionality" improvements by early autumn.

A report on Forbes reveals the analysts expect iPod mini capacities to climb "throughout the year".

Issuing an "outperform" rating on the company, the analysts predict Apple will deliver "solid results" for its third quarter, and observed the company to be in a good position to "monetize podcasting once usage rates increase".
