Apple has announced it will stop making the its music player, the iPod Touch.
The announcement brings to an end a device widely praised for revolutionizing how people listen to music.
The first iPod was launched in 2001, and it could store 1,000 tracks. Today there are more than 80 million songs on Apple’s streaming service.
The iPod Touch was designed by the same team that later invented the iPhone and was last updated in 2019.
There have been various iPod models over the years – including the Nano and Shuffle – but the iPod Touch, which was released in 2007 is the last model to be discontinued.
The first model of the iPod was revealed by Apple boss Steve Jobs in 2001. The big headline for the night was simple: “1,000 songs in your pocket.”
