APPLE has discontinued the iPod after 20 years.
In astatement released on Tuesday, 10 May, the company said the experience of taking one’s music library out into the world had been fully integrated across its Apple product line.
Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president, glorified the iPod for redefining how music was discovered, listened to and shared in the past two decades.
“Today, the spirit of the iPod lives on. 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,” Joswiak added.
He urged customers to purchase iPod touch through apple.com or authorised resellers while supplies last.
