iPod Touch Completely Sold Out in Apple's US Store Just Days After Being Discontinued

Just days after being discontinued, the last iPod, the seventh-generation iPod touch, has officially sold out in Apple's US online store.

Yesterday, we reported that some configurations of the iPod touch were being marked as "sold out" in Apple's US store. Now, all iPod touch models in all configurations are entirely sold out.

Apple marked the end of an era this week when it announced it would be ending the iconic iPod brand and product lineup. The iPod served as Apple's foundation and made it a household name years before the iPhone.

"We've integrated an incredible music experience across all of our products, from the ‌iPhone‌ to the Apple Watch to HomePod mini, and across Mac, iPad, and Apple TV," said Apple's Greg Joswiak on Tuesday, announcing the iPod's discontinuation.

Substituting the iPod, Apple says the iPhone 13 Pro Max and the latest iPhone SE, paired with the second-generation AirPods or the $550 AirPods Max, offer the best Apple Music and audio experience.

So either people felt sentimental about the last product with the iPod name and bought the last ones, or people think they can make a quick buck marking them up on eBay.

The OG iPhone SE is the best iPod.

Small, compact, fantastic design, and amazing sound quality from its DAC.

I think you'll find something called the Apple ][ served as Apple's foundation, and something called a Mac in 1984 was a household name decades before the iPhone.

Not so much a quick buck, but holding for a few years. Literally any sealed discontinued iPod sells for well over original price. This being the final model should be no different.

Apple should revive the iPod Nano (6th gen) — the small square one.

Not everybody needs or wants full connectivity or a device that can do everything under the sun when they just want to listen to some music.

This will never happen of course, because it goes against high margin products only, the fully online culture, and pathological and pervasive data collection.
