National iPod Day is celebrated on October 23 in the United States and celebrates the arrival of the device that changed the music world. Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, introduced the iPod to the world on October 23, 2001. More than 400 models have been sold, bringing in huge profits! Users fondly remember the first iPod – let’s celebrate today!
If you are a representative of an older generation, then remember cassettes, CDs … Then a new player entered the field – the iPod and replaced the rest of the devices! He made a splash and showed how you can listen to and store music.
In 1990, Jobs realized that the size of standard MP3 players was inconvenient. He wanted to give people a completely different device, using which everyone would say: “It’s convenient!”. Based on this, he began to think through ideas for developing an audio device with Macintosh software. Then engineer Anthony M. Fadell was hired, his task was to implement the idea. It took Anthony a year to present a completely new product.
The first iPod cost $399 and guaranteed the buyer the most important thing: 1000 songs in his pocket at any time. And he kept his promise! Decades after Apple single-handedly changed the music world… National Day is for us to say thank you to everyone involved in the amazing world change.
- Initially, the warranty for the device was only 90 days;
- the first models could not boast of a capacious battery, the issue of autonomy was resolved starting from the fourth generation;
- The output power of the first players reached 120 dB. Many countries did not like this indicator. For example, in France, the maximum power of devices should not exceed 100 dB.
