Getting Comfortable With The Basics

iPod and iTunes – Music and More

Apple iTunes and the iPod family of personal multimedia players are a great combination.  

iPod nano with Multi-Touch — the same technology that makes iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch . Now it’s half the size and even easier to play.   

iPod shuffle gives you 2GB of storage capacity, good for hundreds of songs  with up to 15 hours of battery life.  Multiple playlists, Genius Mixes, podcasts, and audiobooks, too.  

With iPod touch, you don’t just play your music. You hear it, and see it, in entirely different ways.  You can also view album art in Cover Flow.

The iPod touch and iPhone look similar, featuring the same wide touch screen with a sleek black border and single home button. The iPod touch is a little smaller and weighs a little less than the iPhone.  It is the iPhone without the phone and monthly bill.

  • One forward-facing and one rear-facing camera
