Sales of the iPod are dropping like a rock, and experts say other Apple products may be to blame.

Apple sold just 7.5 million iPods in the most recent quarter. That is the lowest number since the fall of 2005.

Experts say one factor is that the iPhone and other smartphones can also store and play music, eliminating the need for a separate device.
