Tim Cook explains why iPod Classic’s not for sale anymore

In Apple’s  presentation of new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus everything went as expected and the phones were a complete success everywhere. However, in a completely hidden way, Apple gave a definitely retirement to the last remaining iPod with a wheel, the iPod Classic.

Now, over a month after this action by the Cupertino ones, Tim Cook explains the causes in WSJD Conference. From an objective point of view, its disappearance’s justified.

They were so cool back in the day

In the round of questions done to Tim Cook in WSJD Conference, there was a very important one for a large group of users which is to know the reasons why they’ve stopped selling the legendary iPod Classic. Apple’s CEO answer was that it’s come a time in which the company had no physical chances of findingsuppliers for some important pieces as the companies that supplied them these pieces prefer to engage new technologies.

However, the death of this iPod’s model was already predictable since it was the only device that was still using rotary hard drives for internal storage. Besides, it’d be the only device available in Apple stores with the Dock connector and not the new Lightning one. It’s disappeared at the same time the possibility of getting iPod Classic and iPhone 4S which were the ones using the Dock connector.

Bad times for all iPods

Little by little Apple has been guiding all its devices to the new connector besides giving them all solid state drives or SSD in the case of the computers. Now we’ll pay attention to the rest of the iPods cause it’s already being worrying the lack of news about them, and since Apple’s flagships are iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, it’s little sense to still have these devices. Maybe in a short time we witness the final death of the iPod range. Will it be with the arrival of Apple Watch?
