Apple Kills the Iconic iPod Classic

By: | September 12th, 2014

Apple’s widely talked about recent keynote featured a whole slew of announcements from a watch to new iPhones, and even a mobile payment system.

While everyone was certainly excited about the new products, one iconic product was quietly killed off.

Due to declining sales, the iPod Classic has been discontinued. However, Apple will continue to sell the iPod Touch, Nano and Shuffle.

Music lovers are complaining because of the fact that the iPod Classic held 160 GB and now the Touch features the largest storage capacity at only 64 GB.

Perhaps with the new iPhone 6 coming out, equipped with 128 GB of storage, Apple sees smartphones and streaming as the future of music.
