Apple Appears to Have Discontinued the iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle

Posted by · 4771 views · Translate
Apple has just removed the iPod nano and iPod shuffle from its online store suggesting that the two devices may have been discontinued.

Navigating to apple.com/ipod now takes you directly to the iPod touch page with no references to either the nano or shuffle.

The iPod nano was introduced back in 2005 and last updated in 2012. The iPod shuffle launched in in 2005 and was last updated in 2010.

Sales of the nano and shuffle have naturally declined with the rise in popularity of the iPhone. While the small form factor of both devices is appealing for some uses, especially fitness, the Apple Watch and wireless AirPods let you workout without needing to strap a music player to your arm.

Will you miss these devices if Apple really has discontinued them? Let us know in the comments! You can watch Steve Jobs introduce the iPod nano below!

Instead of discontinued,why dont make it better.i love ipod in term of quality and music organized.i have an 5th ipod nano,the only suck for me is the battery life,compared to my sony walkman that supports hi res audio and the battery are beast.i dont care bout ipod touch because i already have an iphone for web surfing and playing casual game.maybe apple can consider to make an huge upgrade to the nano.maybe hi res audio to compete with other brand like astell & kern and sony,and huge battery life.

The small square iPod nano should have replaced the shuffle. The nano is useless.
