They will come along with double the capacity and will be available at a starting price of $199. However, they were doing away with their Nano and Shuffle lineup of products permanently. The two products that have been killed off by Apple have come a long way since their inception. They were introduced back in 2005, wherein the products were available at a decent cost. The Cupertino-based technology giant kept renewing its lineup with newer versions each year. They were ensuring better consumer attraction as well. However, as the time passed by, the company’s iPod lineup of products started degrading as well. The demand for the same started descending down the slope. Therefore, Apple has decided to kill off its Nano and Shuffle line-up of products.
