Apple is making a lot of changes lately, including coming out with the iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus as well as the Apple Watch. (I really thought they’d name it the iWatch, but what do I know?) While they have exciting new products soon to be released, they’re also discontinuing one of their longest-lasting and most recognizable products – the iPod classic. You know the one I’m talking about – the rectangular-looking thing with the round click wheel which held a boatload of music. It didn’t have a touchscreen, it didn’t play videos, it didn’t connect to the internet, and that was just fine. It did what it needed to do – it played your music, and it looked awesome while it did it. The biggest one could even hold 160 GB worth of songs. I remember wanting to own one of the devices back in its heyday, and never seeming to have enough cash to buy one of my own; that was okay, though, since I could always seem to borrow one from a friend.
The iPod Classic first came on the scene way back in 2007, and you could buy one from Apple until today. If you still have one, make sure you hang on to it as it might turn out to be worth something someday! It seems Apple’s days of “classic” are over, as they are all about heading into the future – not that there’s anything wrong with that.
