Apple stops making iPod Touch


according to Android Authority, in its more than 20 years of operation, there have been periods when Apple produced several different iPod models that were phased out due to the iPhone’s popularity affecting sales. The iPod Touch was the last device in Apple’s iPod portfolio, and now Apple has discontinued it, ending more than 20 years of iPod history. Customers can still purchase this player until stock runs out.

Apple VP Greg Joswiak commented: “Today, the spirit of the iPod lives on. We’ve integrated its music experience into all of our products, from iPhone to Apple Watch, HomePod Mini, Mac, iPad and Apple TV. Apple Music also offers Industry-leading sound quality and spatial audio support make it the best place to enjoy, discover and experience music.”

Apple revolutionized the digital music player with the introduction of the first iPod in 2001. The iPod’s simple interface and large capacity shook the market and immediately made Apple the market leader. As the iPhone’s popularity and storage capacity increased, most customers no longer needed to carry a dedicated music player, which eventually led to the demise of the iPod.

In its heyday, the iPod contributed to Apple’s “halo effect,” in which consumers would buy the company’s cheap products and then gradually invest in more products and services, more services, and eventually realize Apple’s A full transition of the ecosystem. While the iPod Touch may have been the last iPod, their contributions will always be remembered.
