Apple made a surprise for their long-term users with reappearance of nostalgic iPod on Apple’s website in Singapore. iPod minis, that Apple stopped producing 12 years ago, were available to ship in 2 or 3 weeks. There was no upgrade, the device was as it was released in February 2005 – with color alternatives of blue, green, pink and silver and storage alternatives of 4GB and 6 GB. This is second-generation models of iPod born in 2005, nothing younger.
iPod minis’ life was a pretty short one, lasting until the appearance of iPod nano in September 2005. And, in the same way, its second appearance lasted very short (like a few hours this time), too.
What is the real news about iPod?
Actually, iPod mini felt like an illusion, on the other hand removal of iPod nano and iPod shuffle from the official website and online store around the world is a real thing. For now, it appears the iPod nano and iPod shuffle are still available to purchase at many Apple Stores and other resellers, but that likely won’t be the case for too much longer. From now on, iPod touch continues its way on its own with two different storage alternatives of 32GB and 128 GB and color alternatives of space gray, blue, gold, pink and silver.
The last update for iPod nano was in 2012 and iPod shuffle in 2010, while iPod touch was updated in July 2016 with an A8 chip and an 8-megapixel rear camera.
A8 chip, 8MP iSight camera, 5 stunning colors.
