Apple has finally removed the iPod nano and iPod shuffle from its website and online store around the world, and it has since confirmed the iconic portable media players have been discontinued.
Apple also announced that it will continue to sell the iPod touch with updated pricing and storage, including a 32GB model for $199 and 128GB model for $299.
Apple introduced the iPod shuffle in January 2005, followed by the iPod nano in September 2005. In total, there were seven generations of the iPod nano, and four generations of the iPod shuffle.
The success of the iPod, first introduced in 2001 by the late Steve Jobs, helped Apple reestablish itself as one of the world’s most successful technology companies at the turn of the millenium. But, after the iPhone launched in 2007, the iPod nano and iPod shuffle became increasingly niche products.
