iPod Turns 20
Apple co-founder Steve Jobs launched the first ever iPod on October 23rd, 2001 with the slogan 1,000 songs in your pocket. At least 400million iPod devices have since been sold, according to the New York Times.
Safe to say, the iPod changed the way people ultimately listened to music, giving rise to digital streaming services like iTunes and Apple Music.
It also commandeered the introduction of the iPhone, which has since become Apple’s best selling device to date.
20 years ago today, Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPod.
