Apple Should Bring Back the Clickwheel iPod

I loved my iPod and was anguished when it stopped working, but I don’t see it being a practical device today. You specifically bring up the possibility of integrating Apple Music in a new iteration of the iPod, but Apple Music doesn’t lend itself to such a simple interface — no keyboard being the big issue with a clickwheel only device. A lot of features on Apple Music that are easy to access with a touch screen would be tedious on a clickwheel.

Technically we can choose not to have notifications, so one could easily get that kind of distraction-free device on the iPod Touch if they really wanted to.
