Apple retires iPod Touch after two decades
Apple is retiring the iPod Touch, marking the end of the iPod product line, nearly two decades after its inception. The main reason for the decision is that the product is no longer relevant in the era of current technology. Apple Music may now be streamed on an iPad, iPhone, HomePod, MacBook, and even through an Airpods and Apple Watch environment. The introduction of these products has reduced iPod sales. Customers can still buy the music streaming gadget (for US$ 199) until the current stock runs out, according to a company statement. It went on to say that the iPod’s legacy will be carried on through its other devices. “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 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,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing in a statement.
