The evolution of hard disk drives

A Hitachi Microdrive with 16GB of capacity

Microdrives spurred greater innovation in handheld devices, such as Apple's iPod. When the iPod was first released in 2001, it had a 1.8-in. hard drive with 5GB of capacity. By 2006, the iPod was equipped with a microdrive that held 160GB.

The advent of the microdrive corresponded with the adoption of mobile devices
