Welcome to our weekly collection of all the Apple news you’ve missed this week, in a simple bite-sized roundup. We call it Apple Breakfast because we think it goes great with a cup of coffee or tea in the morning, but it’s also great if you want to read it over lunch or dinner.
The gang’s last death
For a pour out IPod touch, Which came out like a boss this week. And by “like a boss” we “in a strangely obscure press release after a lot of people assumed it was dead years ago.”
The Mini, Nano, Shuffle, and other iPod models are long gone, a sad and anticlimatic finish to one of Apple’s most iconic product lines. This is in contrast to Apple, which usually follows the “want them more” policy when it comes to killing favorite products. The iPod Touch was stagnant for three years without any updates before being sentenced to death. It is practically torture.
It didn’t have to be that way. Many Apple fans were introduced to the company’s product ecosystem by an iPod (for me it was roughly a black iPod Nano in 2006) and the iPod touch continues to serve that role until its final model, providing an introduction to both iOS and Cupertino. Design policy below 200. Even its original $ 299 price tag in 2007 was priced hundreds of times less than the iPhone.
Apple is good at keeping people inside its walled gardens, but the high price gates of its products can make it difficult to lure new customers. The iPod Touch was Apple’s gateway device.
The future of the iPod Touch is easy to see because there will always be a market for a version of the current iPhone that does not do much but costs less. With proper promotion and regular updates, the Touch transforms the iPhone into a tempting one with its delicious price tags as long as it lasts, and then pushes them into expensive devices if you feel comfortable with the interface and eager to take things. To the next level
The danger of most entry-level products, such as the iPhone 5C or the recent iPhone SE, is that they To feel Cheap and potentially premium brands can be tarnished. The genius of the iPod Touch is that it is a full premium presentation of half the product. It’s like a hardware version of a feature-limited free software trial It doesn’t keep you dissatisfied; It leaves you hungry for more.
It wasn’t supposed to happen. Of course, the official shutdown is not the end of the story. This week’s announcement has persuaded many owners to post pictures of the still-operational iPod, and we hope that these devices will continue to be a joy for many more years to come. In fact, while the iPod Touch has sold out in the US, you can still pick one if you know where to look and are in the market for a music player with a ton of history.
