Apple Discontinues iPod – Statement

Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, said “Music has always been part of our core at Apple, and bringing it to hundreds of millions of users in the way iPod did, impacted more than just the music industry — it also redefined how music is discovered, listened to, and shared.

“Today, the spirit of iPod lives on. We’ve integrated an incredible music experience across all of our products.”

Nowadays, the iPod has been eclipsed by the iPhone and other music products. It makes sense that Apple would discontinue the iPod, since newer products can do everything it can and more. Still, it’s a bittersweet ending for fans of the classic music player.
