On May 10, 2022, Apple announced that it was discontinuing the iPod. And the 7th generation iPod Touch became the last iPod. Nevertheless, some people will still get used to listening to music on their iPods. Apple Music will undoubtedly be available for iPod, and you can access millions of songs through your Apple Music subscription on your iPod.

However, some people prefer listening to music from other streaming music services, such as Amazon Music.
