Apple gets rid of iPod nano and shuffle, updates iPod touch
Apple has dropped the number of iPods it sells to just one, the Apple iPod touch. Today, the company removed the iPod nano and iPod shuffle from its website. This has been confirmed by a statement from Apple, and the company has already made the appropriate changes on its website. For the Apple iPod touch, this is the first update since 2015. The device will now be offered with 32GB of native storage for $199, and with 128GB of storage for $299. Previously, the device was available with 16GB and 64GB of native storage at the same price points.

The Apple iPod touch features a 4-inch display with a resolution of 640 x 1136. Driving the device is the dual-core Apple A8 chipset with the M8 motion co-processor. 1GB of RAM is employed. On back is an 8MP camera with an aperture of f/2.4. The front-facing FaceTime camera weighs in at 1.2MP with an aperture of f/2.2. A 1043mAh battery keeps the lights on.

The original iPod was Apple's version of the MP3 music player and was the first device to make Apple the superstar consumer product company it is today. Apple soon unveiled spinoffs of the product including the iPod nano and the iPod shuffle. The Apple iPod touch was introduced on September 5th, 2007, not long after the launch of the Apple iPhone.
