Earlier this week we told you that Apple put the “End of Life” (EOL) label on the iPod touch and ended the iPod product line after more than 20 years. When making the announcement, Apple said the iPod touch would be available until current supplies ran out. If you’re looking to buy one to use or keep as a collectible, your time to make a purchase is running out.
on Apple’s US Online Store
, certain iPod touch configurations are listed as sold out and those models will not be replaced on the shelves. Gone forever from the online Apple Store is the iPod touch with the most storage, the 256GB variant, in each color. Also sold out is the PRODUCT(RED) variant with 128GB storage space. If the model you’re looking for is no longer available in the online Apple Store, you can check with your local brick-and-mortar Apple Store or an Apple Authorized Dealer to see which models they have in stock.

The iPod touch has a 4-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 640 x 1136 and is powered by the A10 Fusion chipset that debuted on the iPhone 7 series in 2016. The seventh-generation iPod touch has 2 GB of memory and 32GB, 128GB and 256GB of storage for $199, $299 and $399 respectively. A 1.2MP front-facing FaceTime camera with an f/2.2 aperture is included, along with an 8MP f/ 2.4 rear camera.
The rechargeable battery in each device provides up to 40 hours of music playback and up to eight hours of video playback. Color options include Space Gray, Silver, Pink, Blue, Gold and PRODUCT(RED).
The iPod touch does not offer native phone capabilities and does not require a cellular data plan. Instead, the iPod touch relies on a Wi-Fi connection. Again, if you have to buy one, you might want to start looking now before they’re all gone.
