Apple today announced the demise of the iPod touch. The iPod touch is over 20 years old and will still be available until the device runs out. The iPod touch costs $199 for the model with 32 GB of storage, $299 for 128 GB of storage, and $399 for the iPod touch with 256 GB of storage. Color options include Space Gray, Silver, Pink, Blue, Gold and PRODUCT(RED).
The iPod touch was first released in 2007 and offers streaming music, a browser, messaging capabilities, a camera, and more. It only connects to the internet via Wi-Fi, so a wireless data plan is not necessary, and the small battery weighs 1043 mAh. The iPod touch does not have native phone features.
With the end of the iPod touch, the entire iPod line has been discontinued. The other available iPod touch devices are the seventh generation model with a 4-inch LCD display and a resolution of 640 x 1136. Under the hood is the 16nm A10 Fusion chipset which was first released in September 2016 The camera on the device weighs 8 MP with an f/2.4 aperture. On the front is an f/1.2MP FaceTime camera.
The “iPod touch has been discontinued
Apple has sold many iPod touch devices, and more than 100 million devices were called in the first six years from 2007 to 2013. Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said, “Music has always been an important part of our core business at Apple, and we’ve brought it to hundreds of millions of users in the way the iPod has impacted more than just the music industry . . . how music is discovered, heard and shared.”
Joswiak added: “Today the spirit of the iPod lives on. We’ve built an incredible music experience into all of our products, from the iPhone to the Apple Watch to HomePod mini, and on Mac, iPad and Apple TV. And Apple Music delivers industry-leading sound quality with support for spatial audio — there’s no better way to enjoy, discover and experience music.”
We recommend that if you’re looking to buy one of the leftover iPod touch devices as a collectible, you might want to jump on the plate because once they’re all gone, they’re all gone.
