Goodbye, old friend: Apple finally retires the iPod Classic

iPod Classic

The day has finally arrived. We all knew it was coming. Apple is retiring the iPod Classic.

The company’s faithful music player has disappeared from Apple’s website, all but confirming the device is no longer in production. The move also signals the end of the click wheel, an intuitive and hugely successful interface before touch screen devices ruled the world.


Goodbye, iPod Classic. You were, without question, one of the best portable music players ever produced; your tireless service will be remembered.
