The Vintage Model Pack () features models based on* classics like the Vox AC30 Fawn and the Orange® OR80.
As ordered by CEO Steve Jobs, Apple's hardware engineering chief Jon Rubinstein assembled a team of engineers to design the i Pod line, including hardware engineers Tony Fadell and Michael Dhuey, Rubinstein had already discovered the Toshiba disk drive when meeting with an Apple supplier in Japan, and purchased the rights to it for Apple, and had also already worked out how the screen, battery, and other key elements would work.
Apple did not develop the i Pod software entirely in-house, instead using Portal Player's reference platform based on two ARM cores.
The most recent i Pod redesigns were announced on July 15, 2015.
There are three current versions of the i Pod: the ultra-compact i Pod Shuffle, the compact i Pod Nano and the touchscreen i Pod Touch.
Later i Pods switched fonts again to Podium Sans—a font similar to Apple's corporate font, Myriad.
