Apple's iPod business collapses as revenue becomes a rounding error
Accounted for just 2 percent of Apple's record revenue for Q4 2013, but analysts don't see Apple killing off the music player
Two years before that, the iPod accounted for 51% of all Apple's revenue.
Apple doesn't see the iPod returning to those glory days.
"We would expect [iPod sales] to continue to decline year-over-year in the March quarter," said CFO Peter Oppenheimer yesterday.
