What is an iPod?

The iPod is a portable digital music player that was once developed and sold by Apple. It is an audio player that has been loved by users all over the world because it can store hundreds to tens of thousands of songs in the storage device installed in the main unit. It was sold in several types.

iPod classic

The biggest features of the specifications common to all series are the LCD screen mounted on the top, the wheel operation mechanism located on the bottom, and the polished stainless steel housing on the back. The iPod classic series was very popular in the early 2000s, but with the advent of the iPhone and iPod Touch, it became less popular and was discontinued in 2014.

Why the iPod is closed

In modern society, technological progress is tremendous, hardware progress is tremendous, and new products that surpass this iPod are emerging. In addition, Apple’s flagship product is no longer the iPod. Nowadays, Airpods, iPhone, Apple Watch, etc. are attracting public attention, and the trend of the times has obviously changed. For many users, it will be difficult to continue using a device that cannot be called. Since the current iPod Touch is a degraded version of the iPhone, there was no room left for the iPod to grow.

Investing in the healthcare business

Apple is increasing its investment in the healthcare business. Apple’s healthcare scale will be over $ 15 billion by 2021 and is said to be over $ 313 billion by 2027. In 2018, Apple Watch Series 4 received FDA approval as a medical device in the United States, and its introduction in the medical industry has further progressed, and we will continue to jointly invest with medical institutions to enter the medical data business such as electronic medical records. I’m considering it.
