It’s the end of an era. The iPod Classic will now join the Walkman, Cassette players, CD players, and all others in electronic heaven.
As Apple unveiled the newest additions to their expanding family, the mega-company have put the iPod Classic to rest just shy of its 13th anniversary.
Instead of revealing the news to those Apple aficionados, the company just pulled the iconic music player off of their website, most likely to make room for their newly revealed gadgets.
According to The Verve, if you ever have plans on getting a new one to replace the one you used to hold dear back in high school, you might be out of luck because this isn’t a temporary thing; the collection has been discontinued entirely.
But like it was pointed out on another website, 9to5Mac, it only makes sense that the company does so. The last big update for the music player was back in 2008; that’s six years. The 6th Gen iPod Classic also prided itself on having a 160GB memory and being able to hold to 40,000 song. During today’s event, it was announced that the iPhone 6 will have a memory of 128GB, competing with the iPod’s accomplishment of 160GB.
There’s also that slight plan that the company had to discontinue the iPod Classic which began back in 2010. The company then decided against it, but it looks like the time has come to say good-bye.
Guess it’s true, it’s the end of an era. Now, we know how our parents felt with A-Tracks, cassettes, and Walkmen went away, though we know for a fact that we have our iPod Classic sitting in the glove compartment of our car.
