Apple, an American multinational technology company, announced on Tuesday that it would stop producing the last iPod touch, the last version of the portable music player that it still sells.
The move effectively puts an end to the iconic product line that helped usher in a new era for the music industry and the tech behemoth.
Customers can still buy an iPod Touch “while supplies last,” according to the company. Customers can now listen to their favorite songs from a variety of other Apple devices, including the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, according to the company.
First introduced by Apple’s co-founder and then-CEO Steve Jobs in 2001, the iPod helped kick off Apple’s tremendous success with handheld devices.
By mid-2007, more than 100 million iPod devices had been sold. That same year, Apple unveiled the iPhone, which was in many ways the spiritual heir to the iPod Touch.
