Can they compete with smartphones though?
Apple is not satisfied with selling people $ 1,000 cell phones. Macotakara via Gizmodo, believe Apple will be rebuilding the device in 2019. In early 2000's, MP3 devices became the new cool way to listen to music. CD sales plummed as millions around the world began downloading music. The creation of MP3 and streaming steered the music industry down the digital path, and soon after, services such as Spotify and Apple Music were created. Streaming services are available as apps on smartphones, which turn into little handheld computers themselves. With the power and accessibility that smartphones have, how can a new iPod convince consumers to drop $ 1

The iPod Touch is the last remaining survivor of the handheld series. It was last updated in 2015, and currently retails for $ 199 with 32GB of memory. The news of a new iPod comes just days after stories broke about the imminent release of three new iPhones. The new iPhones are said to have three lenses (on the higher model) and two lenses (on the lower models). It looks like Apple is making a big tech push for 2019.
