Apple has announced that it is ending production of its legendary iPod Touch music player, first unveiled by the late Steve Jobs on stage on October 23, 2001. The company said it would be available "while stocks last," the BBC said.

 

21 years ago, the iPod revolutionized the way people "discover, listen and share music," said Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president of marketing. In 2001, one device had the capacity of a thousand songs "in CD quality", each for 99 cents, recalls the High Snobiety portal.

 

In 2007, the new iPod Touch with a touch screen took over the technology market. It was designed by the same team that later came with the iPhone. The last model of the iPod dates back to 2019.

 

 

"When Apple created the iPhone, they knew it would be the beginning of the end of the iPod," Ben Wood, chief analyst at technology consulting firm CCS Insight, told the BBC.

 

Fans of the legendary device nostalgically reminisce what it was like to listen to music before the advent of iTunes and Spotify.
