The last of its kind, the seventh-generation iPod touch, has officially sold out in the U.S. online store. Apple announced on Monday that it is discontinuing the iPod touch, ending the lifespan of an iconic Apple device.
Other countries, like Brazil, Canada, France, and the UK, are still showing some iPod touch models as available in the Apple Online Store
The iPod touch was the last remaining iPod device offered by Apple, and the device had not been updated since May 2019. The iPod was an iconic device that helped redefine the music industry, along with how music fans enjoyed content. (Did we call it “content” back then?)
When Apple first debuted the first iPod back in October 2001, it was hailed as a revolutionary device, as it put thousands of songs in the pocket, briefcase, or purse of millions of Apple users. Since its initial introduction, the iPod saw multiple iterations, including the iPod Shuffle, the iPod nano, and the iPod touch. All except the touch had long since been dropped from the lineup.
“We’ve integrated an incredible music experience across all of our products, from the iPhone to the Apple Watch to HomePod mini, and across Mac, iPad, and Apple TV,” said Apple’s Greg Joswiak on Tuesday, announcing the iPod’s discontinuation.
