IPod, which is a very popular music player device was released by Apple in 2001. MP3, being a kind of codec is used to store digital audio. For the MP3 players, they can only support MP3 files as their default file format; while iPod advanced by supporting AAC files as its default file formats, and can also support MP3 files. AAC files are actually better than MP3 files when we are talking of audio quality. The only way to rightly save a song in the iPod is by the through iTunes software.
This connects the user directly to the iTunes music store to purchase the song from the internet directly. Unlike MP3 in which files can be dragged into it, and it will recognize and play the audio file. The most popular of the MP3 players are the Zune from Microsoft and Zen from creative. With these four variants of iPod, the Nano, touch, classic, and shuffle, Apple has dominated the personal music player market.
