Looking back at the past and after that say goodbye: iPod has been fifteen years old!

Perhaps it may be said: We are now well-known Apple started out iPod, and this is already 25 years ago. Yes, iPod is unquestionably a legendary product, not long ago around 15 years of age. In this quite memorable day, of course, we should look back on its journey on the way. If your got a broken ipod touch and you want to fix it, you’ll be able to shop ipod parts here.

Low-key start

Local time July 23, 2001, Steve Jobs theoretically introduced to the world the first ipod devices. To some extent, this is Apple’s another new beginning, but at the time that caused the reaction does not sound particularly special “legend.”


Despite the presence of the current look at the first generating of iPod, its design is also very superior. Bright simple body, living in the center of the control area is often a novel ring (the first technology of iPod wheel really can turn). Menu, fast forward, go back, play / pause 4 buttons around the turntable, it is overall shape is sophisticated and generous.

Despite the ipod devices full of bright spots, but at the time it caused dispute and see the sound of the diminish can be really small. The high price of 399 dollars can only be used solely to Mac people can’t understand. Whether or not the 2002 second-generation iPod to join the particular Windows support, compatibility is also very significant imperfections. Moreover, in the era of Mp3 Walkman Pa, “I have a Mp3 machine but also what to do MP3” This particular seems a bit strange concept was not uncommon at the time.

For this reason, the legendary iPod includes a less legendary start, as it is too advanced, people do not understand a “computer company” why suddenly conduct such a thing. But even so, we still can see from it some sort of glimpse of the coming of the future – light and small lightweight body, simple and rapid tunes synchronization. These are now has become a common, but in the past do not have.

The genuine outbreak

Apple products every redesign can attract the attention of the planet, and the third generation ipod touch brings new elements is particularly important. In 2003 this kind of new product came out, it ushered in a truly irresistible alterations.

The third generation iPod grew up honing the predecessors of the layout language, but with a visible design and style change. The same round and body, the four control keys are moved to the top of the control rim, glowing effect of people use it down. Perhaps the most important transform comes from the control panel, the very first rotary design into a 100 % touch, this highly resourceful idea in this after many iPod models become an essential element.


Although the hardware style changes are very important, but really generate iPod become so attractive is the software. From the 3rd generation iPod, it has a excellent Windows support, and even i-tunes and its stores also come collectively. Since then, the purchase of music, synchronization in addition to listening for more users who may have become one go, the utilization of experience changes so that the ipod touch really has the conditions to attract the whole world.

ITunes undoubtedly laid the building blocks for Apple’s take-off again. 2003 on-line audio store has brought a new songs sales idea. The whole recording or single songs sold through the network, no doubt less complicated than the purchase of CD far too. ITunes both have music play back and management, which is also consumers can purchased song from the store. IPod and itunes as seamless docking portable battler, with the success of the second item, by virtue of their excellent quality, ushered in their golden age.
Hopeless transformation

In 2007, Jobs officially brought to people the actual iphone, which has now become symbolic of Apple’s smart phone. Jobs does not appear to mind the status on the iphone to seize the iphone, Apple will be the last option into a nearly all-around equipment. Almost all iPod can do, iphone also can perform. Even if it is portability, it will not be bad where to go.

In order to make the ipod and iphone line to adapt to the iphone following the birth of the new alterations, Apple released a few months later, launched a new iPod touch. IPod touch as well as iphone has a similar system practical knowledge, but not the latter call. People often use a sentence will not be appropriate to describe: iPod touch is a phone can’t call the iphone.

Mp3 this transition may be a number of frustration, but it has a total iOS experience, and the thickness associated with thinner, lower prices, but the computer hardware performance and iphone will be more intense than a generation or not one but two. Those in front of the high price of the iphone, but the cardiovascular of the iOS heart of the people, are pleased to find there apple ipod touch such a cost-effective choice. By individuals needs, iPod touch also received a lot of popularity. By The year 2013, the entire product line has also reached a breakthrough billion profits. By 2015, the sixth generation iPod touch quietly came out. Using this perspective, it is also qualified to possibly be called “classic” the.

Even so, the iPod Touch is becoming more and more rare industry by storm the more mature (and of course Android) cell phones. It has a high degree of overlap look when placed against smart phones in the function, Apple iphone sales in order to ensure that it is not likely to become equipped with a variety of cutting-edge technology promptly.

Although this may make some admirers feel unacceptable, but the simple truth is that Apple has laid the muse for the take-off of the iPod from the new era is no longer important. Soon after 2015, Apple will no longer be released separately ipod device sales information, and it is classified as “other products.” Perhaps the long run Apple will also continue to introduce many iPod new products, but also always provide support for them, although the marginalization of the iPod has been the fact that can’t be changed.
? The iphones are full of personality
On the third generation iPod to be able to iPod touch, in fact, also encountered a lot of the middle. IPod profits of explosive growth, Apple has gotten the opportunity to continue to sway. Inside 2004 the iPod mini is definitely the product “main line” outside of a new test. Although it storage space is not, though the shape of light, but also colorful color. Needless to say, young people who love fashion will love them.

IPod Shuffle is the initial iPod to use flash storage, people at first glance to see this in the mood is stunning – who have seen the screen are not the music gamer? IPod Shuffle Lightweight little, cancel the screen so that the music player completely random approach is very daring. However, in exchange for the cool design along with low price also makes it plenty of fans sought after. There’s also the ipod and iphone nano, which is slimmer compared to iPod, but does not surrender the screen design to give people another choice.

With the iPod little, iPod Shuffle and ipod devices nano the birth of the entire product line has been improved, and let iPod develop into a detached music player fashion resources. This is the iPod’s golden age. Perhaps surprisingly, Apple did not fall enthusiasts. 2007 iPod classic was born. Whilst its voice is often graded as “boiled water”, but in 2009 as much as 160GB of storage space, for those who have many lossless music enthusiasts who is without doubt very attractive.

However, naturally, the positioning of the iPod traditional is too narrow, it will also appear faster exit. 2014, iPod vintage officially discontinued, it can’t often be a tragedy, can only say that the general trend. It marks the ipod and iphone is about to withdraw from the step of history.


Despite the influence of the smart phone under the mp3 player has been unable to maintain it is position, or even difficult to acquire a foothold in the market. But most people can’t forget the surprises, conveniences along with pleasures it once added us. A blink connected with an eye iPod has 15 years old, we should not let it so silence in history, merely say “Happy Birthday”, and then ready to waved so long to it.
