Apple stops its latest iPod model, says customers can listen to music on iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch

Apple said customers can continue to purchase an iPod Touch device “while stocks last.” – Apple said on Tuesday that they would discontinue production of the latest iPod model, which it still sells, which in practice will put an end to the iconic product line that helped usher in a new era for the music industry and technology giant.

Apple said customers can continue to purchase an iPod Touch device “while stocks last.” The company also noted that customers can now listen to their favorite songs from a variety of other Apple devices, including the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch.

“Music has always been a part of our core at Apple, and bringing it to hundreds of millions of users in the way that iPod affected more than just the music industry – it also redefined how music is discovered, listened to and shared.” Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, said in a statement.

“Today, the spirit of the iPod lives on,” Joswiak added, highlighting how the music experience that the iPod heralded has been integrated across “all of our products.”

First introduced by Apple co-founder and then-CEO Steve Jobs in 2001, the iPod helped launch Apple’s huge success with handheld devices. The iPod attracted customers with its signature scroll wheel and the first promise to hold “up to 1,000 CD-quality songs” on a device that fits in your pocket. By mid-2007, more than 100 million iPods had been sold.

That same year, Apple unveiled the iPhone, which in many ways was the spiritual successor to the iPod Touch. The smartphone and other Apple devices that followed eventually made the iPod feel like a relic of the past, long before it was officially discontinued.
