    Upon the announcement of the iPhone 6 and 9 Plus, the iPod Classic disappeared from the Apple Store. Presumably it's now history.

    Let's do a little tribute.

    I've owned, loved, and used my Classic almost every day for the last 8 years.
    I liked that I could operate it without looking at it.
    I liked its simplicity.
    I needed its capacity.

    To add, it was the first product with an "i" prefix - and that nomenclature is history now, too.


    Apple better get a 128GB Touch to the market.

    My iPod Classic was the first Apple device I owned!

    It was actually a surprise from my wife...

    I remember the days when I was using it for my flights and my seatmates were so amazed that my device can store multiple Movies/TV Series!

    ah, the apple product that i always envied but never owned. for my entire college years, i have been saving-up my allowance for an iPod classic but I always had to spend the funds somewhere else for some sort of "emergency".

    by the time i started earning my own money, flash storage was big enough that the 160gb storage didn't appeal as much anymore. cheers to the iconic click wheel, may you never be forgotten. :)

    My first iPod is the 30GB U2 Edition. Then, I got the 160GB silver partnered with iFusion Portable Speaker. I sold them when iPod Touch was released and from there started the iPhone 3G until now the 5s and the iPad 1, 2, iPad mini 1 and iPad mini Retina and all the Macs that I owned.

    Indeed, this humble device,iPod Classic, had introduced me to all of these other Apple Devices.

    Thanks for this thread. I also remember using this as my external HD. ;)

    This is mine… the 5th generation (2006) iPod with Video Enhanced in 80 gb, black, that's working well and devoid of any scratches (front or back). Definitely a keeper. I might even get the 160 gb iPod Classic as a souvenir.

    Mmm.....perhaps an Apple/Beats-inspired DAP is in the cards (probably in the next iTunes-centric Apple event). Headphones, in-ears PLUS Beats DAP makes eminent sense to me. My 160 GB iPod Classic occupies a place of pride in my stable of high-performance DAPs.

    My 2005 iPod with video 60gb died earlier this year after almost 9 years of faithful service. Good thing I got an iPod Classic 180gb in 2011 as a back up. I attribute the iPod for making me convert to the Apple ecosphere having acquired my first iPod in 2003. A dozen or so IPods later, there's no looking back for me.

    Same as my device. My wife bought it as a present since I was traveling a lot on business back in the day. Used it more for videos than music, in fact. Like @ice, got a lot of looks & queries about it when they saw I was watching videos. The videos went to the iPad when it came out.

    The iPod to this day is still my main music device. Nothing beats its simplicity & size. MY only regret is that I never got the 160gb as I was waiting for a 128gb iPod Touch.

    Hope the next iPod Touch will be the same size & capacity as the iP6.

    I got my first and only iPod, a Classic 120GB in 2010. It's been in the car ever since semi-permanently plugged-in to my HU. I have taken it for granted all these years and only cared about that it starts playing my music when I click play on the HU. I only take it out to add songs.

    But in light of recent events, I think it's high time I give the little fella some time in the sun.
