Released in January of 2004, the iPod Mini was lauded as a creation of beauty. The device unsurprisingly was very popular and sold out over the globe. It was introduced as the “world’s smallest portable music player to hold up to 1,000 CD-quality songs”. After capturing 31% of the US MP3 market with the iPod, the iPod Mini cemented Apple’s leading position. The release of the Mini helped Apple achieve a market share of 65% by the start of 2005 – that’s how revolutionary the iPod and iPod Mini proved to be. There are many reasons why we love the iPod Mini at Zapper, here’ s a few!
The iPod Mini was positioned to compete head on with high-end flash-based players. However, it did more than compete, it blew these products out of the water. In a keynote, Steve Jobs explained how for just $50 more than the price of most flash-player devices, users could enjoy vast improvements. Compared to flash-players with around 250MB, the iPod Mini packed a huge 4000MB, allowing it to store a huge 1000 songs. As Jobs explained, this meant users could now transport their whole music library and therefore no longer had to ‘pick and choose’ which 50 or so songs to upload to their devices. Compared to most devices in the market with thickness of about 1.2 inches, the Mini was just 0.5 inches thick. This meant it felt sleek whilst also giving the user a confidence in the device’s solidarity and durability.
Zapper think one of the best features of the iPod Mini was the Click Wheel technology it pioneered. It was the first Apple product to do so, and due to its success it featured on most of the following iPods. It meant that users could still use the Touch Wheel that was popular with the original iPod, but with button functions imposed onto the wheel it meant the iPod Mini did not need extra space for buttons – win. This was a time in technology where consumers were very much impressed with tech companies like Apple squeezing advanced capabilities into even smaller devices. It explained the popularity behind the Mini, and the Nano and Shuffle iPods that followed.
