The world’s first iPod was unveiled to the world in 2001 when Apple was still driving Steve Jobs. At the time, it was to some extent a revolutionary device that, despite its compact size, allowed the entire music collection to be with it at all times. However, with the growing popularity of smartphones, interest in media players has declined across the market, which of course has affected iPods as well.
In this regard, Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, said in a statement that the company has decided to end the production of the iPod, which it brought to the music world. This was reported on the company’s website.

This product has captivated users around the world with the ability to take their music with them on the go. Today, this capability is integrated across the entire Apple product line. With the Apple Music app, users have access to over 90 million songs and 30,000 playlists.
The company noted that the capabilities of this device are supported by other Apple products. “The spirit of the iPod will live on. From iPhones to Apple Watches, Mac laptops, iPads, and Apple TV video devices, we’ve built it into every device we own,” said Greg Joswiak.
Apple says it will continue to sell the iPod Touch until supplies run out. Besides, in January, 9to5mac reported that Apple had no plans to release players under the iPod brand.
