On that day, Apple stopped producing portable non-touch music players, the sixth-generation iPod Classic will be the last to feature a physical click wheel and 30-pin connector, and have a maximum storage space of 160 GB.
The iPod Classic is useful because it doesn’t eat up precious satellite internet bandwidth, and it’s an oddly defined time capsule of music.
You’ve been listening to it for over a decade.
Who still has the classic sixth-generation Click Wheel model from 2007, what degree would you give it to the last original iPods, what you miss the most about the device, what kind of playlists you’ve created, how far you’ve traveled with your old iPod, and where It puts it in the annals of technology history.
