Apple Kills Off Older iPods

If you click on "buy" links for the Shuffle or Nano on Apple's websites, you'll receive a notice that "the page you're looking for can't be found".

Of the iPod lineup, only the Touch - the progenitor for the iPhone - remains alive. Most people now simply listen to music on their smartphone. In fact, Apple reduced the price of the entry-level iPod touch to $199 Thursday.

Apple said the new iPod line would consist of two models for the iPod Touch.

Still, it's worth remembering that the iPod nano played a big role in Apple's resurgence under Steve Jobs. That means Apple has completely phased out its iPods that are single-purpose music players.

Apple has dropped the number of iPods it sells to just one, the Apple iPod touch.

To date, Apple has sold more than 400 million iPods, while iPhone sales went past the one billion mark in July 2016.


The Shuffle, also introduced in 2005, was the smallest player in the lineup and the only model without a screen. They also don't support Apple Music, Apple's online streaming service for audio and video. The Touch's other innards remain unaltered since 2015, suggesting Apple has little interest in further enhancements.

It seems that the era of the iPod is slowly coming to an end.

The iPod Touch is now available with 32GB of storage for $199, or 128GB of storage for $299.

In 2009, a "jaw-droppingly small" Shuffle was released with more memory and features like playlists and VoiceOver for the first time.

Apple is surprisingly shy about killing off its iPod products considering how important these long-running devices are to the history of the company.
