The iPod classic, along with its cousin the iPod shuffle, may be on the short track to discontinued.
According to an unnamed source, Apple will release the iPhone 5 next week in conjunction with discontinuing the iPod classic and the iPod shuffle, CNN reported.
With the removal of these two products, all of Apple's iPods would be touchscreen, the Huffington Post reported.
The iPod classic has been credited with rejuvenating Apple over a decade ago and the iPod currently makes up 7 percent of Apple's revenue.
The iPhone and iPad, which both have video steaming capabilities along with music storage, have in some ways trumped the usefulness or necessity of having an iPod.
