Say goodbye to the iPod

Apple has removed the section on the iTunes store devoted to click-wheel games, prompting further speculation the iconic iPod could be approaching the end. 

The music player, so closely linked with Appleā€™s rise to superpower status, has been usurped of late by multi-function devices like the iPhone, with recent figures indicating the iPod accounts for less and less of the company's profits.

The removal of click-wheel games will affect the iPod Classic and iPod Shuffle models; whether the touchscreen-based iPod Touch and iPod Nano survive to carry on the name remains to be seen.

The first iPod was released on November 10, 2001.
