iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle have been officially discontinued

Apple today removed the iPod nano and iPod shuffle from its website and online store around the world, and it has since confirmed the iconic portable media players have been discontinued. While the iPod touch hasn’t changed since its 2015 refresh, it’s now a much better value at $199 for a 32GB model (previously 16GB) and $299 for a 128GB version (originally 64GB).

Beyond new colors and storage capacities, Apple had last updated the iPod nano in October 2012 and the iPod shuffle in September 2010. Apple last updated the iPod touch in July 2015 with an A8 chip and an 8-megapixel rear camera.

For the past several years, Apple has been fairly clear that the iPhone would eat up the traditional non-network iPods — and that it was comfortable with that happening. The rise of the iPhone and the company’s push into streaming with Apple Music have helped make music ownership a thing of the past. 

You can still get your hands on to these devices in retail till stocks last. Who doesn’t want that iconic nostalgia?
