Apple has at last stopped the production of its two well-admired music players, the iPod Shuffle and the iPod Nano. The Cupertino-based tech major verified the news in an official statement to different websites. While the two models are now discontinued, on the other hand, Apple has rolled out fresh storage versions of its current iPod Touch.
The iPod Touch and the iPod Nano suspension comes after the suspension of the iPod Classic. Apple has detached both the models of players from its official website, making the Touch last product intact in the range. Even though these products have been abruptly detached from the official website, it might still be accessible with 3rd party vendors.
It is worth adding that the company last upgraded its iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano with new color variants way back in 2015. On the other hand, in terms of redeveloping, iPod Nano did not witness any modification from 2012 where the Shuffle was left safe and sound from 2010.
Apple also declared that it is installing its first information center in China. Apple now turns out to be the first firm to meet the terms with a latest stringent law that needs oversea companies to stock up information of Chinese users within the nation. The center in the southern region of Guizhou is a part of a $1 Billion investment and will be managed with a domestic information management firm, the tech major claimed to the media in an interview.
Lately, Apple has also integrated the support for PayPal, the online transaction gateway, for purchases via its ecosystem. These purchases can be done on the App Store, iTunes, iBooks, and Apple Music across iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch gadgets utilizing a PayPal account. The PayPal support is on hand for customers in Britain, the U.S., Mexico, Canada, Austria, Australia, Germany, France, Italy, Israel, Spain, and the Netherlands.
Well, even though the company has stopped the production of the iPod Shuffle and the iPod Nano, it does not harm the profit chart of Apple. All thanks to the iPhone series of the company that is well liked by the people.
