iPod Classic To Be Discontinued October 4th?
The iPod Classic/iPod Video has been a much loved device since the early 2000′s, but with no refresh of the device during Apple’s 2010 refresh period it left many wondering about the fate of the iPod Classic. Today, however, some conclusive evidence of the devices fate may have been discovered. It appears that Apple has removed the click wheel games section from the iTunes store. Which is a significant hint that we may indeed be told the iPod Classic will be discontinued during the Let’s Talk iPhone event happening October 4th, 2011.
Besides this obvious hint of the devices discontinuation yet another hint that Apple will discontinue the iPod Classic is simply due to a large decrease in sales (if you take a look at the graph below you will realize what we mean).
With a decrease in sales, Apple taking down the click wheels games category from the iTunes store I think it is safe to say the iPod Classic may be discontinued October 4th, 2011. Do you think Apple will discontinue the iPod Classic? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
