A Moment of Silence for the Iconic and Now Discontinued iPod

By: Steff Willis

Introduced in 2001, the iPod was the first MP3 player to boast 1,000 songs and a 10-hour battery into a 6.5-ounce package. Since its introduction over 20 years ago, the iPod has changed the game for people who love to listen to music on the go.

the Apple Watch to HomePod mini, and across Mac, iPad, and Apple TV.”Customers can still purchase the current iPod touch through apple.com, Apple Store locations, and Apple Authorized Resellers while supplies last.
