Apple has been shuffling its website around during its annual WWDC developer conference and has officially removed the iPod tab, which has been a staple at the top of the site for over 13 years.
Does this mean Apple is gearing up to pull the plug on the beloved iPod once and for all? It could. We haven’t seen a new iPod since 2012, and the classic wheel-based pod that started it all was officially killed last year. Rumors say we may see an update to the iPod this year, but so far that’s just speculation.
The iPod page is still on the site, but it’s tucked away deep under the new Apple Music tab, Apple’s new music streaming service introduced Monday.
That could partly be because after the launch of the streaming service Apple Music, Apple’s focus is now on sending music over the internet rather than storing it on the iPod personal media players. Only the iPod Touch can connect to the internet at all, and it must do that using wifi so can’t do it away from known home and business networks.
