We've seen it coming but didn't expect it to happen two days ago.
Apple recently announced on May 10th that it is silently discontinuing the Apple iPod that it introduced to the market in 2002.
Still Many Uses Throughout The Years
While the iPhone, iPad, Mac, HomePod, and Apple TV can stream music, some Apple users have still patronized the iPod for its nostalgia and also for serving as a temporary escape from constant connectivity to their smartphones. And then, for some, it just has that old-school vibe you can't beat. Earpods with the headphone jack, anyone?
It has also served as an effective entertainment gadget for kids with peace of mind given to their parents. This is because of the effective iOS controls that Apple offers.
This device is also great for Android users who want to use iOS-exclusive features, apps, and games without having to buy another expensive smartphone. No more being left out during Facetime calls!
A Parting Message From Apple
“Music has always been part of our core at Apple, and bringing it to hundreds of millions of users in the way iPod did impacted more than just the music industry — it also redefined how music is discovered, listened to, and shared. Today, the spirit of iPod lives on. We’ve integrated an incredible music experience across all of our products, from the iPhone to the Apple Watch to HomePod mini, and across Mac, iPad, and Apple TV. And Apple Music delivers industry-leading sound quality with support for spatial audio — there’s no better way to enjoy, discover, and experience music.” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing as stated in the Apple Newsroom.
