iPod shuffle is making a comeback: TikTok discovers Apple s music player

Around 15 years after its introduction, it's back: The second generation of the iPod shuffle from Apple is currently celebrating a kind of comeback as a fashion accessory at TikTok. The colorful mini MP3 player is ideal for plugging in.

IPod shuffle was spectacular in several ways when the first generation was introduced in 2005. Small dimensions and a storage capacity of up to 1 GB, which was extensive for the time, ensured that the MP3 player was almost ripped out of Apple's hands. Only with the second and colorful generation was a clip included to attach the iPod shuffle to the jacket or trousers. Exactly this bracket should now ensure that it is popular again on TikTok.

iPod shuffle: TikTok youth celebrates mini players

The iPod shuffle can be seen in more and more TikTok videos. As always, the TikTokers are creative when it comes to "new" fashion accessories, because the mini MP3 player is often used here as a bobby pin. A first video by the user Kira Vaden has now received over two million views and has no fewer than 350,000 likes. The two iPod shuffles are said to have been bought on eBay for the equivalent of around 10 euros (source: @sailorkiki).

Generation Z is wondering about iPod shuffle

Other Generation Z videos , in which iPod shuffle plays an important role, are also meant more or less seriously. Anyone who has only ever experienced music through their smartphone and streaming services like Spotify may be wondering what this antiquated device was good for.

While the iPod shuffle was especially popular in 2007 and 2008 , Apple officially offered the fourth and final generation for a long time. It was only in the summer of 2017 that the small MP3 players were no longer available.
