The device that weaned many of us off our CD collections and introduced us to the world of digital music will cease production this year.
Released in 2005, the iPod Nano and Shuffle could only play music downloaded from iTunes or ripped from CDs, and lacked many of the features found in later devices, such as streaming service Apple Music. Apple have described the move as a “simplification” of the iPod range.
The iPod Touch – essentially an iPhone without the ability to makes calls or send texts – will continue receiving updates and will remain available online and in physical stores.
End of an era
