Following the news Apple has quietly discontinued both the iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle, the company has now updated the iPod touch, removing the 16GB and 64GB storage capacities from the device, making the portable music player available in only 32GB and 128GB. The iPod clearly paved the way for the iPhone.

The two products have been removed from the Apple online store and will vanish from retail locations as well. Apple stopped updating the Shuffle in 2010 and the last update for the Nano was released in 2012.

Both the iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle were first introduced in 2005. A report from Business Insider includes a statement from an Apple spokesperson citing the "simplifying" of the iPod lineup.

The original iPod arrived in 2001. The iPod touch starts now at $199.99 with 32GB and the only other model is an 128GB iPod touch selling for $299.99. Apple has chose to discontinue the only two iPods in its lineup that did not feature internet connectivity.

The most important of those apps for an iPod, of course, is Apple Music. Neither iPod model discontinued on Thursday had been updated in years.
