The iPod, which was once the choice of music lovers and a status symbol, will no longer be made by Apple. The tech company has officially announced this. However, you can buy it in Apple stores until the current supply runs out. The iPod was launched 21 years ago on 23 October 2001. It was the first MP3 player capable of storing over 1,000 songs and a 10-hour battery life.

“Music has always been part of the core at Apple, and the way the iPod brought it to millions of people is more than a music industry influence,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing. The iPod has redefined the way you listen, discover and share music. He said that all the company’s products that come with Apple Music, the iPod will live on.

The popularity of the iPhone and other products decreased
Apple has released dozens of versions of the iPod over the years, but its popularity has waned with the introduction of Apple Music into the iPhone and other products. For this reason, the company began to phase out the iPod models from 2014. In 2014, the company stopped making the iPod Classic. In 2017, Apple discontinued its smallest music players, the iPod nano and iPod shuffle.
