14 Years of iPod Evolution: Then and Now

14 Years of iPod Evolution: Then and Now

Fourteen years ago in October, Apple changed how we listen to music with the introduction of the iPod. Then, in 2014, the company discontinued the classic iPod model, though you can still buy the iPod Touch, iPod Nano, and iPod Shuffle. Though Apple hasn’t officially revealed anything, an article from 9to5Mac hints at new colors for each of these products, expected to be released around July 14. While the news is exciting, pictures like this one that a Redditor shared to say goodbye to his iPod, still make us miss the olden days.

While the iPhone may have taken over for many Apple users as a music device, it all started with the iPod. We’ve seen so many iterations of the famous MP3 player hit the shelves that you may have forgotten where it all started: a clunky push-button device. Relive the last 13 years of digital music, when phone and music player were two separate things.
