Apple has made an official announcement to discontinue the iPod Touch, which was the last music player model on its portfolio. 

The US tech giant said its iconic music player has been replaced by other devices, making the iPod redundant.

Greg Joswiak, Apple's senior vice-president of worldwide marketing, said, Today, the spirit of iPod lives on.

He added that, We've integrated an incredible music experience across all of our products, from the iPhone to the Apple Watch, and across Mac, iPad, and Apple TV.

He further said, Apple Music delivers industry-leading sound quality - there's no better way to enjoy, discover & experience music.

In October 2001, Steve Jobs debuted the original iPod and it was the first MP3 player that could hold 1,000 songs and had a 10-hour battery life.

Similar MP3 players released by Microsoft and Sony did not have the same success as the iPod.

The company has been slowly killing its iPod range in recent years, with mobile phone technology enabling customers to listen to music on their phones.

Without the iPod, there would never have been an iPhone or iPod, according to its inventor Tony Fadell.
