It's only been three years since fans said goodbye to the iPod Classic, but they'll now have to prep for another period of nostalgia-infused mourning. "Today, we are simplifying our iPod lineup," an Apple spokesperson said in a Thursday statement, per TechCrunch.
The company has confirmed it will be discontinuing its iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle MP3 players. That means there's only one Apple device left that we can still call iPod: the Touch. What appears to have doomed the Nano and Shuffle was the shift to iPhones and streaming music, and as both the Shuffle and Nano had limited (if any) apps capability, they fell behind the curve—and Apple didn't bother bringing them up to speed.
