iPod Socks were a set of multi-colored cotton knit socks introduced by Apple Computer in November 2004 for the protection of iPods from travel damage.[1]

History

The socks were jokingly presented by Apple CEO Steve Jobs as a "revolutionary new product" at an special music event held on October 26, 2004. They were available in a package of 6 different colors.[2]

Discontinuation

Apple stopped selling the socks sometime in September 2012.[3] The set soon became a collector's item, with aftermarket prices rising as high as US$90 by 2014.[4]
