This Is The Reason Why Apple Killed Off The iPod Classic

Apple CEO, Tim Cook, has spoken up about the company stopping the production of the iconic iPod Classic media player, a move which was announed after the iPhone launch event in September this year.

Speaking with Wall Street Journal, Cook said that iPod Classic was killed off because Apple was unable to procure parts for the music player.

He said, “It wasn’t a matter of me swinging the ax, saying ‘what can I kill today’. The engineering work was massive, and the number of people who wanted it very small. I felt there were reasonable alternatives.”

iPod Classic, which featured a click wheel, was last updated five years ago as iPod touch gained popularity. 

With storage capacity of 160GB, iPod Classic could store as many as 40,000 songs. iPod touch has maximum storage capacity of 64GB; other iPods in Apple’s portfolio are iPod nano and iPod shufle.
