iPod is a small portable music player. Users can transfer songs to their iPod with their computer, iTunes, and the iPod . Since the release of the Apple iPod in 2001, under the iPod brand Apple has released many variations of its product such as the iPod classic, iPod Touch, iPod Shuffle, iPod Mini, iPod Nano and several spin-off devices such as the iPod Photo.
The iPod touch was important not just because it was the most dramatically different iPod Apple had released in years. It also made clear how Apple viewed the iPod fitting into its wider product line. Instead of being the device Apple built its empire around, the iPod touch was the “training wheels” designed to get younger customers into the Apple ecosystem. This was the iPhone before you got your first real iPhone.
