Two models of the iPod Touch will still be available, Apple said, starting at $199 with double the capacity they had before. On Thursday, a company spokesperson confirmed to The Verge that it has "officially discontinued" the iPod Shuffle and the iPod Nano.
In fact, when the iPhone first came out, the music app was called "iPod". Since then, the iPod's influence has continued to wane, as thinner phones with more storage and faster internet speeds made streaming services like Apple Music more attractive.
But the original hardware iPods have a special place in Apple's history. The iPod clearly paved the way for the iPhone.
Regardless, it's the end of an era as Apple no longer sells any traditional music players.
