Apple is down the line where three years ago it stopped selling the amazing classic Apple iPod and now it is going to discontinue the other two less-expensive versions of iPod, namely iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano. The news arrived yesterday afternoon. Apple confirmed the news and claimed that the products were removed from Apple’s website as well as online stores.
Even though, those two models have been discontinued; two versions of iPod touch will be still available and they will be ensured with double capacity. They will be sold at a starting rate of $199 per piece.
But looking back, when both of the versions were introduced in 2005, with their sleek bodies and smaller size, at an interesting low price, we were in awe with them. Weren’t they amazing for that time. But then came the iPhone and it clearly crunched the existence of iPod. It served the same purpose, along with other features. So this was a given. With all the buzz surrounding iPhone 8, the stepping of Apple into the technology pool, this was bound to happen.
All we can say is, we are not sure about the future of iPod touch itself. But summing it up R.I.P. iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle.
