The iPod is a line of portable media players and multipurpose pocket computers developed and marketed by Apple Inc. The first version was released on October 23, 2001, about 8 and half months after the Macintosh version of iTunes was released. As of May 28, 2019, only the iPod Touch (7th generation) remains in production.

Like other digital music players, some versions of the iPod can be used as external storage devices. Prior to macOS 10.15, Apple’s iTunes software (and other alternative software) could be used to transfer music, photos, videos, games, contact information, email settings, web bookmarks, and calendars to devices that support these features from computers using specific versions of Apple macOS and Microsoft Windows operating systems.

Prior to the release of iOS 5, the iPod brand was used for the media player included in the iPhone and iPad, a mix of music and video applications on the iPod Touch. Starting with iOS 5, separate apps called “Music” and “Videos” have been standardized across all iOS products. While iPhones and iPads have nearly the same media player capabilities as the iPod line, they are generally viewed as separate products. In mid-2010, iPhone sales surpassed the iPod. Apple, Apple Newton produced from 1993 to 1998 and produced eMate from 1997 to 1998. After poor sales of these devices, Apple wanted a mobile device and so began the development of a personal media player, which later became the iPod.

The iPod was released in late 2001. Apple’s iPod line evolved from the “digital hub” category when the company began creating software for the growing personal digital device market. Digital cameras, camcorders, and organizers had well-developed mainstream markets, but the company considered existing digital music players “big and bulky or small and useless” with “incredibly terrible” user interfaces, so Apple decided to develop its own. As ordered by CEO Steve Jobs, Jon Rubinstein, chief of hardware development, assembled an engineering team to develop the iPod line, which included hardware engineers Tony Fadell and Michael Dhuey, and design engineer Sir Jonathan Ive. Rubinstein had already discovered the Toshiba hard disk drive while meeting with an Apple seller in Japan and buying the rights to it for Apple, and he also knew how the screen, battery and other key elements would work. The aesthetic was inspired by the 1958 Braun T3 transistor radio, designed by Dieter Rams, and the wheel-based user interface was developed by Bang & Olufsen BeoCom 6000 telephone. This product (“the Walkman of the twenty-first century” ) was developed in less than a year and was released on October 23 2001 year. Jobs announced it as a Mac-compatible product with a 5GB hard drive that puts “1000 songs in your pocket.”
