Is iPod still leading In the MP3 Device Industry?

I remember when the first iPod first came out, I was still at high school at that time. It was the best thing that ever happened at that time after the coming of GSM mobiles. It was quite pricey at that time so you only see it with a selected few.

What’s so cool about the Apple iPod was that you could put a lot of songs from your PC into it and listen to hours of music all day. Even though at that time the screen had a black and white interface, no one actually cared about that.

The iPod device actually transformed the Apple Company by transitioning them from a computer company into a consumer electronics company. Apple became popular first from the iPod days long before the coming of iPhone.

Currently apple still sells three-fourths of all MP3 players sold, which means it is still the leader in the MP3 industry even though the iPhone and iPads are generating more revenue than the iPod and they are also gaining more attention from customers.

IPod touch now functions much like an iPhone just that it’s not a phone but rather an MP3 device that tons of music can be stored in it. It also has a camera to it which you can take pictures and videos. When broken, iPod touch parts are easily accessible.

Another advantage of the iPod is the fact that it has FaceTime installed in it, this has definitely boost sales and market share. It also has a range of different specs ranging from iPod Classic, iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle.

However, with iPhones and iPads dominating the customer’s attention, will the iPod still be relevant in the coming years to come? For one thing though, iPod is not as trendy as it used to be before and consumers are not really much concerned about it.

This is because the iPhone and iPads all have MP3 software’s installed in them, in fact anything you can do with all the two devices you can also do with an iPod. So, more customers are spending their money on iPhones.

Some even prefer to buy the iPhone accessories and apps; it makes more sense to them spending their money on those things rather than going for an iPod.

However, we can’t be too pessimistic towards the iPod relevance as Apple might decide to bring out something new as there is news that Apple will unveil a new Apple iPod this year.

Apple has actually introduced a new 2019 iPod which is the 7th generation iPod touch. It comes in space grey, gold, silver, pink, blue and red colors.

It has a single lens 8-megapixel camera on the back and of course you can connect with a WIFI and also use Bluetooth as well to connect to other devices like the Beats speakers. It still has the headphone jack feature.

With so many iPod touch parts available, you can bet your money on it if you are a much lover and fan and that’s all there is to it.
