And then there was one. This week, Apple ended production on the iPod nano and iPod shuffle. In doing so, only the iPad touch remains in the once dominant iPod lineup. Here are other tech headlines from the past week.
End of an era
Apple has ended production on the iPod shuffle and iPod nano. It also announced a price break on the company’s last remaining iPod.
The 32GB iPod touch is now available for $199, while the 128GB edition is $299. Those prices are $100 off the previous price points. The 16GB and 64GB model are no longer available.
Both the iPod nano and iPod shuffle first arrived on the market in September 2005.
Where things stand. With the new pricing options announced, the iPod touch should remain, at least for a while. The iPod touch was last updated in 2015.
