The iPod disappears from the official website of Apple
Slowly the famous iPod device begins to disappear. The official website of Apple It serves as a new step in the fall of the iPod into oblivion, something that makes perfect sense if we consider that it first appeared 13 years ago. Apparently WWDC 2015 is the beginning of a pious death for one of the products that revolutionized the way of listening to music, but now has little to do with the advancement of tablets and smartphones.
Apple Music is the new bet of Apple to revolutionize the music sector
Since last Monday, on the website of Apple, The section dedicated to the iPod is no longer available and its place has been replaced by the Music section. In recent years, iPod sales have been declining significantly, mainly because iPhone and iPad sales steal from the public. Sales of iPod Nano, iPod Touch and iPod Shuffle devices are currently discontinued and Apple It has stopped considering these products as part of its sales strategy.
In the new Music section of the official website of Apple all the news about the service appear Apple Music, the new way in which Cupertino's company wants to continue revolutionizing the music industry. However, there is little or no information about the iPod.
At the bottom of the Music section we can find a section dedicated to the iPod and the Apple TV. However, although a new version is expected with changes and updates for the Apple TV, the iPod seems to be slowly falling into oblivion as a product that completed its cycle and helped the company generate millions of dollars with its different modifications over a period of life that extended 13 years.
Apple Music and its streaming music concept have just moved to the iPod
With the arrival of new devices with multimedia capabilities the iPod was relegated, and now what Apple aims to offer a higher quality streaming music service the reason for the existence of the iPod goes to the background. We may be at the beginning of a slow but inexorable process of disappearance of the iPod family. To the reduction of sales in recent years we must add the preference of users for other devices, mainly the iPhone and iPad that have the ability to play music and video and also other additional functions that make the iPod a less striking device.
Will the fact of having removed it from the official website be a way to say goodbye to the iPod?
