iPod Nano and the iPod Shuffle, two iconic music players of Apple, have finally been discontinued by the company. As the two models go extinct now, Apple has introduced new storage variants of its existing iPod Touch.
The discontinuation of the two models comes after the discontinuation of the iPod Classic. Both the MP3 players have been removed from Apple’s website. Although these models have been unceremoniously removed from the website, they may still be available with third-party retailers.
Interestingly, the two models were introduced in new colours in 2015. However, in terms of redesigning, iPod Nano didn’t see any change since 2012, while the Shuffle was left untouched since 2010.
Both the iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano were launched in 2005.
However, Apple has updated its iPod Touch lineup with two new models with more storage.
“Today, we are simplifying our iPod lineup with two models of iPod touch now with double the capacity starting at just $199 and we are discontinuing the iPod shuffle and iPod nano,” said the Apple spokesperson to Bloomberg.
The new features of the iPod Touch are 64GB inbuilt storage available at $199 and 128GB storage available at $299. The iPod Touch will also get iOS 11 later this year.
It is not certain when these new variants will hit the Indian markets.
