Apple Drops iPod Classic from Range after Seven Years

Posted by at 5:45 pm on September 9, 2014



While announced new iPhones and the Apple Watch, Apple has apparently stopped selling the iPod classic. The long-running music player is no longer visible in Apple’s online store, suggesting the company has finally retired the device after seven years, and almost 13 years after the first version of the iPod went on sale.

Launched in September 2007, the iPod classic was available with a choice of 80GB or 160GB of storage. Serving as the highest-capacity music playback device on the Apple product list, beating the 64GB iPod touch, today’s unveiling of 128GB models of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus may have given Apple the motivation to kill the device once and for all. Apple already removed the iPod classic from its refurbished sections in May of this year.
