The Apple iPod, 2001 — 2022

The Apple iPod, 2001 -- 2022

Apple has announced that, after existing 7th generation iPod Touch supplies are sold, the 21-year-old portable music player line will be laid to rest. In lieu of flowers, you should probably subscribe to Apple Music or something.

For you youngsters, here’s the gee-whiz 2001 iPod promo video:


“Farewell to the iPod,” Tripp Mickle, New York Times

“Apple Kills the iPod,” Phillip Tracy, Gizmodo

“‘The spirit lives on’: Apple to discontinue the iPod after 21 years,” Christy Cooney, The Guardian

“A Visual History of the Apple iPod,” Eric Griffith, PC Magazine
