By Dominic, 24 May, 2023 Forum Hardware and Accessories What do you guys think of the iPod now these days? What do you think was the best iPod? Are you sad to see the iPod get discontinued?

I found myself using my phone because the sound quality was better. Many of them also had weird battery issues, where the wrong percentages were shown. I'm not sorry to see them go. iPod nostalgia my first iPod was the iPod Shuffle third generation. my brother wanted to buy me an iPod. so I researched the options back then, the nano forth generation had recently come out. . It was the first accessible iPod Apple made. it would synk voice clips of your default voice on Windows and Mac, windows being Microsoft Sam at the time. I was all set to buy it! then mom weht to buy it at my local reseller, and they told her about the shuffle. so, back to Google I went, and found videos by Apple demonstrating it. so I bought it and loved it. then, bought an iPod touch forth generation. sold the shuffle to my sister, who washed it in the washer. it had no screen, so it was imparitive everyone used VoiceOver, sighted or not. before accessible iPods were first party, there was opensourse firmware called Rockbox. someone showed one to me, and it was amazing! back then, I thought Apple would never do it! how innovative they were, and still are today. I wish I still had the iPod Touch and the iPod shuffle. it would’ve been cool to look back on what was.
