The Apple iPod was first launched in 2001. Apple’s first intention for the iPod was to make it solely a music player. However, as the years went by, Apple started bringing out newer and more advanced versions of the Apple iPod that could not only play music, but take photos and play videos as well. Apple iPods have been hugely successful and have sold over 110 million units worldwide.

It has now become a multimedia player that can not only play music, videos and podcasts but do slideshows of photos as well. It is a great form of entertainment for the user whether they are on the move or in the house – in fact, it is suitable for just about anywhere. Certain Apple iPods can consist of games to keep the user busy, podcasts to get the latest news onto the channel you have subscribed to and audio books to listen to while on the train heading to work, catching up on your favourite novels.
The Apple iPods are very light, small and compact and this is why they are known as portable media players. All of the newer Apple iPods are smaller than bulky CD players and this is why it is a favoured option.
