It is one of the most successful Apple products of all time and it revolutionized the way we listen to music. Now, Apple has announced that it has discontinued the iPod, more than 20 years after the first one was released in October 2001.

Although it is still possible to get the iPod touch model on the Apple website. The most recent iPod to be released was the 7th generation iPod Touch, released in May 2019.

The first MP3 player that could store 1,000 songs and had a 10-hour battery life, the iPod transformed the way we listen to music. The US tech giant said its iconic music player had now been replaced by phones that could also play music.

Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, said, “Today, the spirit of the iPod lives on. We’ve built an amazing music experience into all of our products, from iPhone to Apple Watch to HomePod mini, and to Mac, iPad and Apple TV. And Apple Music offers industry-leading sound quality with support for spatial audio – there’s no better way to enjoy, discover and experience music.”

In October 2001, Steve Jobs introduced the original iPod and it was the first MP3 player that could store 1,000 songs.

“With the iPod, Apple has invented a whole new category of digital music player that lets you put your entire music collection in your pocket and listen to it wherever you go,” he said at the time.

Similar MP3 players released by Microsoft and Sony were not as successful as the iPod. Apple has released five versions of its music player: Classic, Touch, Shuffle, Mini and Nano. (I)
