It's been a rough week for nostalgic tech.

First, Microsoft Paint was on the chopping block. Adobe then announced its Flash plug-in will removed by the end of 2020. Now, Apple (AAPL, Tech30) is discontinuing the iPod nano and iPod shuffle.

The company confirmed on Thursday its classic media players have been removed from its website. Although they're still available for purchase in stores, the devices will no longer be in production.

"Today, we are simplifying our iPod lineup with two models of iPod touch now with double the capacity, starting at just $199, and we are discontinuing the iPod shuffle and iPod nano," an Apple spokesperson told CNN Tech.

The iPod touch -- the last iPod standing -- will come in two options: a 32GB version ($199) and a 128GB option ($299). Previously, Apple also offered storage capacities of 16GB and 64GB.

The news shouldn't come as too big of a surprise. The tech giant discontinued the iPod classic in 2014 and hasn't updated the shuffle or nano in recent years. Apple released the first shuffle and nano in 2005.
