The technology giant Apple announced on Tuesday the end of the production of the iPod, a line of portable music players that it launched in 2001 and that has lost popularity with the development of other types of devices. The US firm explained in a statement that the latest iPod touch, the most recent iPod model, They will remain available while supplies last.

Apple claimed that for more than 20 years “the iPod has captivated users all over the world who love the ability to take music with them wherever they go,” but this feature is present in the company’s other products, including the iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac. “Music has always been at the core of Apple, and bringing it to hundreds of millions of users the way iPod did has not only impacted the music industry but also redefined the way music is discovered, listened to and shared,” said Greg Joswiak, vice president of marketing for the company.

Joswiak claimed in the statement that “the ipod spirit lives on” in all other Apple products that allow you to play and share songs. Apple’s first digital music player known as the iPod was introduced at the Apple Music Event in October 2001.

The first iPods had a capacity of 5 and 10 gigabytes already Its modern design combined a great quality of reproduction. But the brilliant idea behind the invention was its connection with a virtual store of songs on the Internet, the iTunes Store, which turned Apple into a provider of multimedia content. Apple launched the latest iPod touch model in 2019, to which it added the functions of a smartphone but without calls or text messages, which differentiated it from the iPhone, with a capacity of 32 and 128 gigabits.
