The online Apple store in the United States has been completely wiped out of its iPod Touch stocks.
This came shortly after the world’s first $3 trillion company announced on May 10 that its iPod line is retiring after its 21-year run.
In 2001, Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPod model, which boasts of the capability to conveniently carry on-the-go 1000 songs, revolutionizing digital music.
It was an instant hit among music enthusiasts and replaced CD players, MP3 players, and hard drives.
“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,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
Joswiak added that the “spirit of the iPod lives on” as its music experience has been integrated across Apple’s other products.
