Get ready to feel a little nostalgic today, as Apple has officially discontinued the beloved iPod.
While for the last ten years, the Apple iPod has been more of a nostalgic toy than a necessary device, the tech company has finally discontinued it. Now, it will only be available “while supplies last.” Citing that now, your music library has. been integrated across Apple’s product line, from iPhone to Mac.
“Music has always been part of our core at Apple, and bringing it to hundreds of millions of users in the way iPod did impacted more than just the music industry — it also redefined how music is discovered, listened to, and shared,” Apple Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing explains. “Today, the spirit of iPod lives on. We’ve integrated an incredible music experience across all of our products, from the iPhone to the Apple Watch to HomePod mini, and across Mac, iPad, and Apple TV. And Apple Music delivers industry-leading sound quality with support for spatial audio — there’s no better way to enjoy, discover, and experience music.”
