In a sudden development, Apple has discontinued iPod nano and iPod shuffle. The company will not manufacture these devices. However, the existing stocks will be sold out as usual through various retail and online stores.
The discontinuation of iPod nano and iPod shuffle assumes significance in the wake of the upcoming launch of the iPhone 8. The company had eliminated iPod classic three years back in the similar fashion. Apple has removed the iPod nano and shuffle from the official website. According to TechCrunch, they had received confirmation about the discontinuation of music players from the company communication department.
The only possible option for music lovers at this point of time is the iPod touch, which is available in both 32GB and 128GB storage variants. GSMArena has expressed apprehension about the future of the iPod touch. We expect that the Apple will continue with the product to meet the expectations of music lovers around the world even though smartphones have evolved considerably.
Interestingly, Apple has upped the ante by introducing 32GB and 128GB storage models of iPod touch. The company has removed the 16GB and 64GB storage variants. The official iPod touch Buy page provides the details of the new storage models. It remains to be seen as to how long Apple will continue with the iPod Touch but the removal seems bleak.
While the 32GB model is available for $199, the 128GB internal storage variant of the iPod Touch is priced at $299. Apple also provides free iPod touch engraving. The iPod touch is available in Gold, Space Gray, Red, Blue, Pink and Silver color variants.
We infer that Apple had discontinued the iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle since there is not much demand for these devices with the rapid emergence of smartphones.
