It’s been a long time since the iPod was Apple’s most important gadget, and while the iPod Classic, the iPod Nano, and the iPod Shuffle are no longer available, the iPod Touch is still keeping the name alive. And if rumours are true, it seems Apple’s last remaining iPod is in line for at least one more refresh.
On Thursday, Tim Cook issued a dire, surprising, and historic warning to his company’s investors. Apple, the world’s first trillion dollar company, would be lowering its revenue forecast for the first time since 2002, thanks in part to bad iPhone sales and China (basically). But wait, you’re thinking, what the hell happened in 2002?
Of all the things you do with your iOS devices, listening to music is probably still one of the most common reasons you reach for them. The iPod isn’t dead; it just got lost in a sea of other features. But you could make it the star of the show again with this tiny case that (sort of) transforms your Apple Watch back into one of Apple’s most iconic creations.
Two more members of the Apple family just got put in the ground. On Thursday, a company spokesperson confirmed to The Verge that it has "officially discontinued" the iPod Shuffle and the iPod Nano.
Today is the iPod's 15th birthday, her Quiñceanera if you will. While some tech blogs celebrated -- the International Business Times even coined it National iPod Day -- the most important people appear to have forgotten: Apple, the iPod's own daddy. No press release. No tweet from the Apple official account, or Apple Music or Apple Support. No tweet from Tim Cook. Steve Jobs is too busy either hanging with the tech angels in future heaven to notice, or caught in a circle of hell where the fires are fuelled by Galaxy Note 7s, weeping for his sweet iPod.
Remember last year how everyone freaked out when Apple cancelled the iPod Classic? For anyone who could bear to give up all that storage space, that was a golden opportunity to make a killing on eBay -- but the moment appears to have passed.
When Apple quietly killed off the iPod Classic earlier this year, there was a small outcry from Apple loyalists with sizeable music collections. And if current prices are anything to go buy, it looks like some people haven't given up on the dream of owning one.
During a court hearing in Oakland, California, it's come to light that, between 2007 and 2009, Apple deleted tracks downloaded from rival music services off of iPods. According to attorney Patrick Coughlin, users who downloaded music from other services and then tried to sync them to their iPod using iTunes would receive an error message.
With every new iOS update, there are bugs and glitches. Oh man, were there ever glitches with iOS 8. For a brief time, if you knew how, you could go back to the sane stability of iOS 7. Not anymore -- Apple stopped signing iOS 7.1.2 on Friday afternoon.
Apple users, it's here -- the final, stable, built-for-the-regular-public version of iOS 8 has arrived. Back up your stuff so you don't lose everything, and then go get that fresh new software!
The click wheel is dead! Long live the touchscreen. While Apple has moved on to brighter and screenier devices, the click wheel remains one of our favourite input methods of all time. Call us sentimental, but let's take a walk down memory lane.
