Apple Inc officially announced the death of the iPod, sadly!

Apple Inc announced that the iPod is no more, is dead for good after almost two decades of existence. The tech giant said that the current stock that is on sale, is the last one. 

The former Apple CEO and co-founder Steve Job when he launched the iPod once said, “With 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 noted at the time. 

“With iPod, listening to music will never be the same again.” 

Tony Fadell, iPod and iPhone co-creator said the device is not dead however, it morphed into something else. 

“We did iPod Plus Phone,” Fadell said. “You took the headset, which had a microphone on it and the one ear thing. You could use the Click Wheel to select numbers and names, or you could dial with it, like a rotary phone, which was the ultimate death of it.” 

“You couldn’t enter anything, because there’s no textual input. But it was an iPod Classic with a phone in it. Walk it back from the third-party prototype, and we were there, too,” adds Fadell.

We’ve integrated an incredible music experience across all of our products, from the iPhone to the Apple Watch to the HomePod mini, and across Mac, iPad, and Apple TV. And Apple Music delivers industry-leading sound quality with support for spatial audio — there’s no better way to enjoy, discover, and experience music.”
