14 iPod ClassicWe had previously reported on the rumors that Apple may be discontinuing the iPod Classic and iPod Shuffle. Given how long those products have been in the cycle and how everything seems to be moving towards touch screens these days, we can’t say that we’re surprised.

Now the rumor is starting to gain a bit of traction and credibility as it seems that Apple has removed a section from the Apple iTunes App Store that was previously dedicated to click-wheel games, such as “Brick” and “iQuiz” and “Klondike”. While nothing has been officially confirmed yet, the announcement to discontinue the iPod Classic and iPod Shuffle could be announced on October 4th at Apple’s iPhone event – either that or both devices could be killed quietly and phased out without much fanfare.
