Apple this week announced it has discontinued the iPod touch after 15 years and seven generations, bringing the entire iPod lineup to an end.

This week there were rumors about both the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 15 as well as a report that Apple is planning to launch the AirPods Max in new colors later this year.

While supplies last, Apple will no longer sell the iPod touch. The device is already listed as sold out on Apple's online store in the United States, and inventory is quickly diminishing in other countries as well.

The iPod was one of Apple's most popular products, but it was discontinued over time due to the wide array of Apple products that can play music.
