Apple Discontinues iPod Nano And Shuffle, iPod Touch Gets A Storage Bump

Apple has removed the iPod nano and iPod shuffle from its website and online store, leaving only the iPod touch in its iPod line-up. This isn’t a surprise as after sales peaked at 54.8 million units in 2008, only 2.6 million iPods were sold in the fourth quarter of 2014. Sales have dropped more, though Apple has grouped iPod sales under its "Other Products" category since then. The first generation iPod nano was introduced on Septemeber 7, 2005, as a replacement for the iPod mini. It was last updated in October 2012. The first iPod shuffle was announced at the Macworld Conference & Expo on January 11, 2005. As for the lone iPod Touch, Apple has now updated the storage to a 32GB model for $199 and 128GB and $299.
