Apple Inc is discontinuing its iPod more than 20 years after the device became the face of portable music, and began to grow rapidly into the world’s largest company.

The iPod Touch, the only version of the portable music player still on sale, will be available before the end of deliveries, Apple said in a blog post Tuesday.

Since its launch in 2001, the iPod has taken on the assault of competing music players before it was eclipsed by smartphones, online music streaming and the pantheon of Apple, the advent of the iPhone.

The iPod has gone through several iterations since its inception with a scroll wheel, a storage capacity of 1,000 songs and a 10-hour battery life.

So far, the iPod Touch version was released in 2007, the same year as the iPhone.

Apple stopped reporting iPod sales in 2015.
