Apple Company Announced That They Are Going To Cease Their Last IPod Model

The iPod, a game-changing product that revolutionized the music and technology sectors more than 20 years ago, is no longer available.

The iPod Touch, the last of a line of products that launched in October 2001, was announced by Apple on Tuesday as being discontinued. The touch-screen model, which was first released in 2007, will be available until supplies run out.

Apple Company Announced That They Are Going To Cease Their Last IPod Model

Over the years, Apple developed hundreds of iPod models, but the product was eventually overshadowed by its other products, particularly the iPhone. As a result, in 2014, the corporation began to phase out models. The iPod classic, a model with a click wheel and just a small screen that was almost similar to the original one, was discontinued at the time. The iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle, Apple’s tiniest music players, were discontinued in 2017.

The iPod Touch, which was popular as a less expensive alternative to the iPhone, lasted a few years longer. The device cost $199 when it was last upgraded in 2019. Compare that to Apple’s most affordable iPhone, the SE, which end up costing $429.

Apple, on the other hand, no longer considers the product vital because there are so many other methods to receive music.

The iPod, which was introduced by Steve Jobs, is credited with transforming Apple from a near-bankrupt firm to a $3 trillion giant. The iPod paved the way for the iPhone, iPad, and AirPods, which now account for the majority of Apple’s income.
