Instead of iPod Nano and Shuffle: iPod Touch and HomePod in the Apple Shop

Apple has said goodbye to the iPod Nano and the iPod Shuffle in its online shop. You can no longer buy the two iPod devices via the official Apple website.

Here is some current information on Apple's music offering.

Music in the Apple universe

Who is a bit with the Story of Apple und mit Steve Jobs in particular, he quickly realizes that music has always been an important topic at Apple. The link between acoustic art and the Cupertino company has probably reached its climax in the form of the iTunes service.

In combination with the iPod and mobile devices such as the iPhone and iPad, Apple wanted to make music always available and "tangible" for its customers; or at least accessible with a few finger gestures. Not least with the AirPods and the HomePod, Apple shows that music still seems to be a big topic in the company even after Steve Jobs. Even if 2017 means: Goodbye iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano!
