“Today, we are simplifying our iPod lineup with two models of iPod touch now with double the capacity starting at just $199 and we are discontinuing the iPod shuffle and iPod nano,” reads the statement from an Apple spokesperson.
Some of the most affordable products in Apple’s lineup, the iPod nano started at $149 and the iPod shuffle started at $49.
