Apple Discontinues iPod Nano and Shuffle

Apple Discontinues iPod Nano and Shuffle
The rise of the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch meant the end was near for the rest of Apple's more traditional iPod line. Now, the iPod Nano and Shuffle will join the iPod Classic in Apple lore upon their discontinuation.

As The Verge reports, an Apple spokesperson has confirmed today (July 27) that both models have been discontinued. The iPod Touch remains the last unit standing, sold with 32GB and 128GB storage capacities for $199 and $299 USD, respectively.

Neither the Nano or Shuffle have received major upgrades in recent years, the former seeing its last overhaul in 2012 with a touch screen and Bluetooth support. The latter saw a redesign in 2010.

The iPod Classic, which was the last of the units to boast a click wheel, was discontinued by the company in 2014.
