iPod Touch Now Fully Removed From Apple's Website Worldwide, Incompatible With iOS 16

Apple today removed the iPod touch's product page from its website in all remaining countries where the page was still available, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, marking a final farewell to the portable music player.

Apple announced that it was discontinuing the iPod touch back in early May, and the device is now completely unavailable to order from its online store nearly one month later. It may still be possible to find the iPod touch at select Apple Authorized Reseller locations while supplies last, but inventory is likely very limited by this point.

Apple's newly announced iOS 16 software update is not compatible with any iPod touch models, according to Apple's website.

First introduced in October 2001, the iPod was one of Apple's most iconic products, but the device's discontinuation became inevitable over time given the wide array of Apple products that can now play music, including the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, HomePod mini, and more. The latest seventh-generation iPod touch model was introduced in May 2019.

"The spirit of iPod lives on," Apple's marketing chief Greg Joswiak said last month.

Though I haven't owned an iPod in years, it's kinda sad to see it go. Would be nice if Apple added something like an "Apple History" section to their website. A place where you can learn about the early years, culture-changing products (iPod would rank high among these), stuff about Steve Jobs and the early founders, etc. to bring in some humanity would be refreshing. As it is, Apple's brand is so freaking clinical it's a tad creepy.

Rubbish move from 'Environmentally friendly' Apple.

Completely arbitrary considering the A9 2GB ram iPad 5 is getting supported.

Given they were selling this at full price as a new item just a month ago, it's pretty unforgivable.
