Twenty years in the world of technology is a geological era, maybe even two. And for some time now, all the functions that we previously relegated to multiple devices have been easily carried out by the smartphone that we always carry with us. So Apple has decided: the iPod, the most famous music player in the world and the one that really started the second life of the Apple company, will no longer be produced. In reality, only the iPod Touch had remained on the list for several years, a sort of younger brother of the iPhone, very similar aesthetically but with reduced functionality.

And through all these generations, a real fortune for Apple, which has become the go-to name in digital music.

A vocation that continues today with the AirPods line and with the “spirit” of the iPod that survives in the new products: a part of the iPod will always survive in the iPhone and in the Watch, even if the physical object has been consigned to history.
