Stock up, because Apple isn’t making them anymore. Apple recently discontinued its super-small audio player along with the iPod nano, leaving the iPod touch as the last iPod standing.

The iPod shuffle was originally introduced in 2005, and it seemed like an odd product because it had no screen. It had just a set of player controls set in a circular button ring. But it caught on and lived a long life in Apple’s product lineup.

You can probably easily find someone still using an iPod shuffle. Do you really want to carry your iPhone or wear a bulky iPhone arm strap while you’re out for a run? That’s where the iPod shuffle is ideal.

So you might want to buy another iPod shuffle or two before you can’t find them anymore, and have a backup device in case the iPod shuffle you’re currently using goes out of commission. Or maybe you’re a collector and want one to stash away. Whatever your reasoning, you can find the iPod shuffle at several third-party online retailers—Apple.com no longer sells the iPod shuffle.

IDG

When you’re shopping for an iPod shuffle keep this in mind. The last version of the iPod shuffle is sometimes called the 5th (and sometimes 6th) generation model, which was released in 2015. However, the only difference between the 4th and 5th (or 6th) generation models are the available colors. There’s nothing different about the technology between those generations.

Here are a few places where you can find the iPod shuffle.

Amazon

It’s easy to find the iPod shuffle on Amazon. Prices very a lot, depending on whether the product is new, used, or refurbished.

NewEgg

In addition to the iPod shuffle, NewEgg offers iPod shuffles that have been treated for use underwater. Search for “underwater iPod shuffle” if you’re interested. The links below go to the iPod shuffle for landlubbers.
