Ahead of the iPod’s 20th anniversary, Tony Fadell reflects on the device’s creation

He “truly got started” designing the gadget in May 2001, barely five months before it was launched by Jobs, according to him. He described it as “nonstop, seven days a week.” According to Fadell, when Jobs presented the iPod at a small press gathering at the company’s former Infinite Loop offices, the gadget was not yet ready.

Apple’s former senior vice president of the iPod team Tony Fadell reflected on his involvement in designing the gadget on the 20th anniversary of Steve Jobs revealing the first iPod on October 23, 2001. Apple was on a quest, according to Fadell, to release the iPod by Christmas 2001.

Nevertheless, he said Jobs handed out this early version of the device to the media in attendance, along with a collection of 20 CDs containing the music that had been pre-loaded onto the device. Fadell added that by 2005, Apple was starting to look into the cell phone market.

As he has shared in previous interviews over the years, Fadell said his team toyed with prototypes of a full-screen iPod with a virtual click wheel, adding that the Mac team had separately designed a “massive capacitive touchscreen the size of a pingpong table.” Apple ultimately launched the iPhone with a multi-touch display in 2007. The full interview is a worthwhile read over at CNET for those interested in the days leading up to the original iPod’s launch two decades ago.Tag: Tony FadellThis article, “Tony Fadell Reflects on Creating the iPod Ahead of Device’s 20th Anniversary” first appeared on MacRumors.comDiscuss this article in our forums
