Apple introduced a new line of iPod Touches the other day. Basically, they’re iPhones with out the phone bits. The new models range from 32G of storage for $249 to 256G for $489. Seems pricey for an MP3 player, but whatever.
The iPod may have saved Apple from extinction almost 20 years ago, but it’s long been eclipsed by iPhones. Statista has this graph that shows the rise and fall of the iPod.
