Good. This thing was atrocious. They could make a decent new one if the market is still there. Remove all the camera bullcrap, give it the apple watch chip, 5 inch screen, dual speaker, usb C, 64GB, however much RAM they deem appropriate for the entry one at 200/250 and call it a day. But this would require a new design and Timmie loves to recycle so its not gonna happen for a niche product like this.

I’d honestly love to have an updated iPod nano 3rd gen. I’d pay good money for that thing. There’s just something about the novelty of such a small device in that form factor and all. Give it much better battery life, give it much more storage, a better display, better build quality, Bluetooth connectivity, USB-C, etc. Surely there’s places people would love to NOT have their phones with but would appreciate some music. I know I’d rather take a small, thin, light device with me when I’m cycling around over my bulky phone, for which I appreciate the larger screen for very different reasons.

Q

I have two 3d generation iPods, an 8gb and 32gb, that still have the 30-pin socket. They both still run good. They’re used mainly for environmental sleep aid or white noise while plugged into a 1st generation Bose Wave speaker. I knew that eventually the iPod will be discontinued. The used market should have plenty of them. RIP

Rkm, 11 May 2022No need to be rude. Just google Sony NW-A55. Not that powerful by over ear standards but still… moreuh, yeah because that’s supposed to be a dedicated music player. an iPod is more than just a music player. big difference. main reason why i said the statement is dumb because they focus on a completely different market.

I actually never owned any iPod player even though I remember they were all the rage back in the day. I still have ancient Philips SA3125 MP3 player with just 2GB of storage. Believe it or not, I’ve had it sitting in my drawer for like 10 years without touching it and battery is still fully charged and it’s working great. Insane. This guy has been going with me everywhere. I also have Creative Zen MP3 player with 8GB of storage. This one has a very sketchy battery, but I still have it. Then I sort of stoppe dlistening to music on the go, not even through smartphone. I guess going everywhere with car kinda changed that since I listen to music there…

iPods are great, you can just tape it to a 4G dumb phone with hotspot and use it as normal smarthphone! O3o

Time for a $200 iPhone in the form factor of the iPhone SE 2016 with A15 Bionic. Battery life would be similar or better than iPhone SE 2020.

Sad news. These have been the go to mobile devices for both my boys before being ready for full on smartphones.

A unique category of device that unfortunately seems to now be at an end……

this is sad. I was hoping Apple updates this with modern powerful hardware like the iPhone SE for me as a cheap alternative than getting an iPhone since it is easy to carry another phone or device as a hotspot.
iPod touch could also act as an Apple small tablet for kids.

Still have my ipod touch 3rd gen, just the battery depleted quickly. Ipod was not the best audio (sound quality) player but its very simple to use.

I only knew apple when I saw the touch with my uncle, who then out of nowhere gave it to me.
I never knew a device could have such a big screen, a touch screen (and a proper one) and knows when I tilt it! It was a marvel of a device and I might have been the first to0 get it in Saudi (Uncle brought it at launch from China). People everywhere wanted to know what that thing was and got looks and pointing. I couldn’t leave it for a minute. (people always made fun of me sticking to me device but now everyone does with how many smart devices they are, EXCEPT me -_-) Then got the 4G then the iPhone 4G (one of the best phones ever) and probably the last time I believed in apple.
I did not know the iPod was only stopped now, I thought it was long gone. Awh now I wish I got one just for old time’s sake.

It is an embarrassing device, especially in 2022.
There are like zero features that competition does not do significantly better … oh, wait, competition does not have “Apple M1” chip in MP3 player – that’s the only “pro” of iPod.

With that happening, I think iOS’s market share lost a million, and Android’s market share increased, because of how much the devices are.
