The iPod Touch is Six Years Old Today


This is just a little heads-up. The iPod touch is six years old today. Well, actually Steve Jobs announced the device back then. It launched shortly after.

The iPod touch was basically the iPhone without the phone functionality. It doesn’t sell well compared to Apple’s other devices, and as website TUAW says, many expect Apple to discontinue the device. However, it’s unlikely anytime soon. Despite small sales, the device has its market. Some people don’t want phone contracts, some are parents buying a multimedia device for their kids. For instance, when a parent buys holiday gifts such as an iPod touch for each kid. That may be two or three iOS devices. Not as much fun when you’re having to sign up for a 2-year contract.
