“As Apple is rumored to discontinue its aging hard-drive-based iPod classic, the company has removed a section from the iTunes Store devoted to click-wheel games,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.
“Users used to be able to access a link to ‘iPod Click Wheel Games’ by clicking the drop-down menu on the App Store link in iTunes.
