The beloved iPod is close to extinction.
Today Apple pulled the plug on two more models, the iPod nano and iPod shuffle. Both products are no longer listed on Apple’s website, and are no longer available from Apple’s online Store.
In an email to media, a spokesperson for Apple confirmed this saying, “Today, we are simplifying our iPod lineup with two models of iPod touch now with double the capacity starting at just US$ 199 and we are discontinuing the iPod shuffle and iPod nano.”
For now, Apple is selling its last remaining iPod, the iPod touch, in 32GB and 128GB capacities. If you’re hoping to snatch the last-generation iPod nano and shuffle, you should still be able to find them at your favorite tech reseller until supplies last.
The iPod nano was first introduced in 2005 (2004 if you count its precursor the iPod mini) and went through seven different iterations and plenty of colors, shapes, and finishes.
The iPod shuffle was also first introduced in 2005, starting off with what looked like an Apple USB drive going through a total of four redesigns.
If you’re getting sentimental over the news, you’re not alone. While millions around the world are adoring Mac users, and millions more completely loyal to the iPhone — the iPod is one of Apple’s most important products of all time, revolutionizing the music industry, and maybe, even responsible for cementing Apple’s place in history.
