Apple officially discontinues iPod after its 20+ years of Legacy


Apple officially discontinues its iPod lineup. The Apple iPod was one of the most iconic products from Apple. The first-ever iPod was launched by Steve Jobs almost more than 20 years ago on the 23rd of October 2001. The last update to the iPad iteration was seen in 2019 with the iPod touch. But it also didn’t have any significant changes over the last one. 

Since its launch in 2001, we have had almost 26 different variants of the iPod. These were categorized under 5 different categories, where:

  • iPod Classic 
  • iPod Nano
  • iPod Mini
  • iPod Shuffle 
  • iPod Touch

All these different variants of the iPod were targeted to different audiences with varied range differences in price and feature sets. 

Here Apple has happily discontinued their iPod and has stated that the iPod touch will be available for purchase while supplies last but buying that won’t be a wise decision by any means. 


In their Press release Apple also stated “Since its introduction over 20 years ago, iPod has captivated users all over the world who love the ability to take their music with them on the go.Among the incredible ways to enjoy music across a range of devices, including a wide variety of models from the new iPhone SE to the latest iPhone 13 Pro Max, iPhone is the best device for streaming Apple Music or storing an entire music library on the go. Apple Watch and AirPods are the perfect companion, allowing users to access over 90 million songs right from their wrist, starting at just $279 with Apple Watch SE.  And for the best way to enjoy music at home, HomePod mini is just $99.

We think that the iPod should have been discontinued quite a while ago because the product didn’t make sense in today’s day and age. Even the iPod touch was priced very close to the iPhone SE, but it packed an underpowered OLD SoC, not so impressive battery life and cellular capabilities. What are your thoughts?
