Apple recently killed the iPod classic – without a mention of it – Apple silently removed it from its iPod product lineup. At the WSJDLive tech conference, when asked about the iPod Classic – Tim Cook mentioned that they had to remove the uber famous device off the shelves because they simply could not get the parts for it from anywhere in the world.
We think Apple simply killed the iPod Classic because it wasn’t generating enough sales. Otherwise with so much money in the bank, Apple can easily get anyone from China to supply the parts they need. During its prime-time, the iPod Classic is responsible for driving many leading MP3 manufacturers out of business. It truly revolutionized the way we listen to music.
