RIP: Apple Has Killed the iPod Nano and Shuffle

AS originally spotted by MacRumors, Apple has officially discontinued the iPod Shuffle and Nano. The news comes as the company removes the products from their website where only the iPod touch sits now.


After originally being introduced back in 2005, the iPod Shuffle and Nano became relatively popular amongst music streamers. However, with the explosion that was the iPhone and the chorus of other smartphones that could also play music, the iPod quickly become obsolete. Many started questioning why the iPod existed in 2017 (this video by YouTuber Austin Evans actually details this speculation pretty well) where smartphones have clearly dominated the market. Now, it looks like Apple has acknowledged this fact and has taken action. And might I say, it’s about time.

We’ve reached out to Apple for comment. We’ll update this article if we hear back.
