Apple has announced that the iPod has been discontinued, 20 years after it was released.

The US tech giant said its iconic music player has been replaced by other devices, making the iPod redundant.

Greg Joswiak, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing said: "Today, the spirit of iPod lives on.

"We've integrated an incredible music experience across all of our products, from the iPhone to the Apple Watch to HomePod mini, and across Mac, iPad, and Apple TV.

"And Apple Music delivers industry-leading sound quality with support for spatial audio - there's no better way to enjoy, discover, and experience music."
