Apple quietly retires the venerable iPod Classic

September 9, 2014

Out with the old, in with the new. Along with unveiling a redesigned site earlier today, Apple has officially retired the venerable iPod Classic. The device is no longer on sale through its online store.

The iPod Classic was originally introduced back in 2001, and started Apple’s golden era that led to the iPhone, iPad, and today’s introduction of the new Apple Watch.

Before its retirement, users could purchase the iPod Classic for $249. Its 160 GB of storage held somewhere around 40,000 songs.

But thanks to today’s introduction of an iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with an option for 128 GB of storage, it really shouldn’t come as a big surprise that the Classic is history. It was last updated in 2009.
