Apple Silently Discountiues The iPod Classic

Apple has quitely killed-off its iconic click-wheel iPod Classic today following the announcement of the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch devices today. The iPod Classic was the last legacy handheld device that used an internal mechanical hard drive, a 30-pin Dock Connector and Apple's iconic click-wheel, which was a favorite among music hoarders for its large 160GB storage capacity and $250 price tag. It's more than likely that we will see larger flash-based storage capacity iPods being introduced in the iPod touch and iPod nano lineup very soon. Currently, customers have the option of choosing between 16GB, 32GB and 64GB storage capacities for the iPod touch, and only 16GB for the 7th generation iPod nano.
