Tim Cook says Apple killed the iPod classic because it couldn’t get the parts

Apple quietly discontinued the iPod classic last month, just short of the iconic MP3 player’s 13th birthday. Tonight, Apple CEO Tim Cook explained why the company decided to shelve its revolutionary device — it couldn’t get the parts any more. Cook, speaking at this evening’s WSJD Live event, said on stage that Apple no longer had access to the components necessary to build the 160GB iPod classic. You’d imagine manufacturers would still produce parts for Apple if the company really pushed for them, but Cook said when faced with a dearth of necessary materials, the company felt that it wasn’t worth redesigning the venerable device.

How Tim Cook is reshaping Apple over time

Apple CEO Tim Cook is less flamboyant than his predecessor, but is gradually reshaping the company to become a better corporate citizen than it was under Steve Jobs, according to a new profile. The New York Times takes a long look at Cook’s tenure and finds a steady hand who has compelled Apple to embrace renewable energy, philanthropy, and domestic manufacturing, among other initiatives. He has also attempted to make up for Jobs’ departure by building a “creative brain trust” that includes Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre, who are joining the company as part of Apple’s acquisition of Beats Music.

A full assessment of Cook’s ability to develop new hit products won’t be possible until the release of Apple’s forthcoming smart watch, which the T…
