Why Apple Killed the iPod Classic: ‘We Couldn’t Get the Parts Anymore’

Tim Cook made an appearance at the WSJ.D conference on Monday, and during the Q&A portion of the night, he was asked about the iPod Classic, which Apple finally laid to rest last month.

MacRumors:

Cook said Apple primarily stopped making the device because it was no longer possible to source the necessary parts from anywhere in the world. Apple does not have plans to reintroduce the iPod classic due to a shrinking audience and the engineering costs that would be needed for a new version…

Many had expected Apple to lay the iPod Classic to rest upon the introduction of a 128GB iPod touch. While the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus now boast a 128GB option, the iPod touch remains maxed out at 64GB.

The 1.8-inch mechanical hard drives used in the iPod Classic were sourced from Toshiba, who has since discontinued its entire line of 1.8-inch hard drives.
