Apple Discontinues iPod nano and iPod shuffle
Apple has discontinued the iPod nano and iPod shuffle after an incredible 12-year run. In a statement given to Business Insider:
Today, we are simplifying our iPod lineup with two models of iPod Touch, now with double the capacity, starting at just $199, and we are discontinuing the iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano.
The first time I saw an iPod nano in use was in 2007 when a colleague was showing me family pictures. I remember thinking that the screen was incredible for such a small device. Shortly afterwards I went and bought one, and to this day, I still think the iPod nano was my favourite iPod.
It’s hard to get over the fact that all that remains of the iPod lineup is the iPod touch.
