The first iPod, released on October 23, 2001, was the first MP3 player to fit 1,000 songs and a 10-hour battery into a 6.5-ounce package.

On February 20, 2004, Apple released the iPod mini, which contained everything “customers loved about iPod in a compact design at just 3.6 ounces.”

The iPod nano (2nd generation), which was released on September 25, 2006, featured a slim design, a bright color display, six fashionable colors, and up to 24 hours of battery life, as well as the ability to store up to 2,000 songs in the user’s pocket.

“The breakthrough Multi-Touch interface that made iPhone a hit to iPod with a magnificent 3.5-inch widescreen display was first presented on September 5, 2007,” according to Apple.

In 2019, the 7th-generation iPod Touch was released.

Over the last two decades, memories of the iPod have been imprinted in our collective psyche, from dancing silhouettes wearing Apple’s signature white headphones to new releases pouring in rainbow-colored paint.

However, after a 20-year reign, Apple is finally discontinuing the item that forever transformed consumer electronics and the music industry.

On Oct. 23, 2001, Apple released its first music device, with the slogan “1,000 tunes in your pocket.” Steve Jobs described the device, which at the time could contain one’s complete music library on a 5GB Toshiba hard disc, as “a quantum leap in music listening.”

“Music listening will never be the same again,” Jobs remarked at the debut of the iPod.

However, the iPod Touch, the last edition of the iPod, is already being phased out, with sales only lasting while supplies last.

“Bringing music to hundreds of millions of people in the way that iPod did influence more than just the music industry—it also transformed how music is discovered, listened to, and shared,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing in a statement.

People have taken to the internet to express their feelings about the “end of an era.”
