The culprit behind iPod Classic’s death
iPod dominated the MP3 player market for years. It began with the first iPod with a circular trackpad and more variants came after. But just when iPhone 6/6 Plus was launched, Apple pulled the iPod Classic from the store. Why?
There have been multiple speculations about the slow death of the loved iPod until September 9, 2014 but Apple is mum about it. For 5 years, it has stayed the same with no slight change in design or anything. There is just one reason behind it, parts.
Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, explained during WSJDLive conference on Monday that Apple mowed down the iPod Classic because it was unable to acquire parts for the device. Simple, huh? How come a gigantic company can’t simply order parts or create an updated iPod Classic with flash storage? We don’t know exactly if that is the real deal but one thing’s for sure, iPod Classic will be missed.
