Apple reduces connection to iPod after 20 years – SABC News

Apple Inc. has stopped producing the iPod more than 20 years after the device became the face of portable music and triggered its massive development into the world’s largest company.

The iPod Touch, the only version of the portable music player still on sale, will be available until stocks last, Apple said in a blog post on Tuesday.

Since its launch in 2001, the iPod took over the storm of competing players before being overshadowed by smartphones, streaming music online and within the Apple Pantheon, with the rise of the iPhone.

The iPod has gone through several iterations from the beginning with a scroll wheel, the ability to store 1,000 songs and a 10-hour battery life.

The version that has been used so far – the iPod Touch – was launched in 2007, the same year as the iPhone.

Apple stopped announcing the sale of the iPod in 2015.
