When it comes to iPod, it feels strange.
In fact, Apple’s website still sells the iPod Touch, a music player updated in 2019 with a 4-inch screen with a Home button, an A10 processor and a 32GB starting price of 1,599 yuan.
Considering that the iPod celebrates its 20th anniversary next month (October 23), there are rumors that the iPod Classic will be updated next month, seven years after its predecessor.
Some designers have created renderings of the iPod Classic 2021, with the bezels modeled after those of the iPhone 12.
The front side is still the upper display screen and the lower operation ring. The touch design refers to the remote control panel of Apple TV 4K.
One big change for music lovers is the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack, which is clearly part of Apple’s effort to boost sales of its AirPods headphones and further boost the wireless Bluetooth market.
