Drops iPod

9 Sep, 2014

As Apple moves on to wearable devices and bigger screens on their smartphones, they say goodbye to their classic MP3 player, the iPod, which¬†was introduced in October 2001. The device eventually held up to 160GB of music. The iPod accounted for a large part of the company’s sales, with 54.83 million iPod units shipped at the division’s sales peak in 2009. Numbers decreased as Apple’s iPhone and competing Android¬†smartphones sales begin to eat into the MP3 market. Additionally, new devices, like the iPad tablet, created a brand new product niche.
