Apple iPod: One Decade Later
| by Naina Khedekar
Apple celebrated the iPod's 10th birthday recently. The iPod embarked upon its journey a decade ago and managed to create a heritage by leaping through generations and generations of devices. Through the years Apple devices have shed weight, been tweaked about and even surprised us by being completely unique. So a quick walk down memory lane reminds us about this iconic product, the first of the "i" generation of devices to make it out of Apple. Here's a brief history on the transformation this ‘i’ device has undergone from its launch 10 years ago.
Where it all began...
For those with shallower pockets
The third generation Nano underwent a design makeover (not for any good unfortunately) in September 2007. Reaching the fourth generation in 2009, Apple retained the older form, in fact it got much sleeker. In 2009, the fifth generation Nano was much slimmer and came equipped with a camera along with Live Pause for FM radio, a built-in pedometer, Nike+iPod Support and a built-in speaker. The sixth generation saw a design overhaul and turned heads over its tiny Shuffle-like square form factor integrated with a 1.54-inch touchscreen. Introduced in September 2010, it promised 24 hours of music on a single charge and also bid goodbye to the click wheel and the camera. This year at Let's Talk iPhone, Apple decided to simply touch up the Nano’s UI with resizable home buttons, enhanced fitness app and sixteen new clock faces.
