A tech staple of many households over the years is being discontinued. 

Apple is discontinuing the iPod after more than 20 years on the market.

The tech giant hasn't updated its latest version - the iPod Touch - since 2019.

The writing was on the wall for the iPod as many of its features were used in other devices.

Apple says it'll keep the last remaining generation of the iPod on sale while supplies last.

Despite the discontinuation, Apple says the 'spirit' of the iPod will live on.

iPhones and iPads, for example, are the go-to now for music playback for most people.

Apple's iPod was introduced to the market over 20 years ago and has evolved over the years.

We were treated to the iPod classic, the iPod mini, the iPod nano, the iPod shuffle and now the iPod touch.
