Apple throws out the iPod: Sale while stocks last

The current version of the iPod touch, and thus probably the last iPod ever, has been on sale since this week. The device, which has now been declared a phase-out model and was originally designed for innovative mobile music playback, is only available while stocks last. This explains Apple in a recent press release with the headline "The music lives on“. According to the title, the report is not just about the iPod and its history, but also and above all about the new ways of listening to music on the go with Apple devices - such as the iPhone.

The iPod touch from 2019, the last representative of the iPod product line launched in 2001, has now been declared a discontinued model. More modern solutions for mobile music playback from Apple are the iPhone and the Apple Watch.

After more than 20 years: iPod is being replaced by other devices

The first Apple iPod with a scroll wheel was introduced in October 2001 and brought 5 GB of storage for music that was dragged onto the device using iTunes. Apple thus brought out one of the better of the music players with its own hard drive, collectively known as "MP3 players". The organization of the titles and their display on the display in combination with operation via the scroll wheel convinced many users. After the iPod came the iPod mini, the iPod with a click wheel, the iPod Photo, the Shuffle and Nano versions, the iPod Classic and finally the iPod touch - since 2019 in the 7th generation.
