Apple iPod is still the most popular digital portable music player in the world. From its start some 10 years ago with a single product, we today have a range of Apple iPods; from the gaming and entertainment optimized iPod Touch, the small and portable iPod Nano and Shuffle, to the iPod Classic that still stays close to the original concept of having your entire music library in your pocket.
Meet the 2012 iPod familiy.
Apple iPod Touch
The iPod Touch is currently in its 5th generation and remains an alternative to the iPhone in terms of offering the same opportunities with the exception of mobile phone use. It shares much of the same technology as the iPhone but at the same time it is thinner and lighter, making it an ideal mobile gaming and entertainment platform that has been a huge success for Apple.

The little brother in the iPod range, the iPod Nano has changed form and functionality a few times since it was first introduced, but the focus has remained on being ultra portable and user friendly. A popular alternative amongst people on the go because of the size and ease of use, the current iPod Nano 7 has again changed form and gotten lots of new features.

Apple iPod Classic
Still the iPod that is closest to the original concept from Apple and still going strong. Interest in the Classic is still strong due to the size of storage (160gb) making it easy to carry your entire music library with you wherever you go. In the recent years there has been lot of rumors and talk about Apple removing the Classic from its iPod line up, but although it has not seen any major upgrades in the recent years, it is still going strong.
