  • iPod Classic Supplies Dwindle: Discontinued or Update?


    Earlier this month, we discuss the possibility of iPod Classics getting new hard drives that almost double or triple the original capacity they have once been limited to. AppleBitch reports that the iPod classic supplies are drying up at Target, Amazon (2), Best Buy and even Apple is giving a 1-3 days before shipping. Even with no real big firmware updates in some time, the Classic does remain to sell decent.

    Now the question is, with these dwindling supplies, does this show signs of potentially being discontinued, or will these new hard drives prove to be a worthy update for the product line? Currently the supply shortage only seems to be affecting the silver colored model.

    The iPod classic has not been in over a year. What do you think?

      They need to go back to the original iPod video style from 2005-6, but just increase the capacity. The outer body style and the OS itself were better than the current classic. I'm also pretty sure they were faster than the current model, I don't know, maybe it was just that there were smaller hd storages In those

      I have a 160GB Ipod classic(circa 2007-2008) and would be lost without it. I also have a 32GB IP4, but I keep all my music on my classic. I travel with both. I just wish I could find cases for the older classics. They are thicker than the 2008+ ones

      The classic is becoming a bit a dinosaur. I can only see these being sold to a specific market so I think discontinuing it would be a good idea.

      On another note, I think apple should up the iPhones memory to 32 and 64 gb. It would make all of our lives easier !

      This is hilarious, I just purchased a 160gb version about 2 hours ago at Walmart before they closed lol.

      I've been wanting it for awhile for the simple fact I can fit my whole library on it really appealed to me. Also I love the old style click wheel because I can usually navigate it while its in my pocket without even looking.

      If it is discontinued then it will be sadly missed, but I'm glad I got mine

      Well I must be crazy cause I actually went out and bought the black one. Something about nostalgia...
      ....that Nano I had was black....

      The Classic is..well a classic! But I can see Apple getting rid of it unfortunately. I hate what they did with the new Nano, its ridiculous! The last generation was the best, perfect size and everything. Now where are they going to go with it being the size of the shuffle...with the stupid clip on the back?

      You know... I'd be good with that. Put an iPT touch-screen on the body of a Classic, replace the home button with a "home click-wheel" slightly larger than the home button, and call it the iPod Titan. 160GB touch with click-wheel, would be pretty darn cool.
