2001 to Present

In 2000, digital music players were either big and clunky or small and useless with equally terrible user interfaces. Apple saw the opportunity and announced the release of the iPod, their first portable music player on October 23, 2001.

At first, the reactions were confused and hostile, critics lambasted the $400 price tag, the unconventional scroll wheel and the lack of Windows compatibility. Despite all this, the iPod sold beyond everyone's expectations, went on to revolutionize the entire music industry, and the rest is history.

On October 23, 2001 Steve Jobs forever changed the course of media and entertainment distribution when he unveiled his creation, the Apple Ipod.

At iPod History, we're striving to be the number one destination for information on all iPod models ever.
