  1. 1GB = 1 billion bytes; actual formatted capacity less.
  2. Weight varies by configuration and manufacturing process.
  3. Internet access required; broadband recommended; fees may apply.
  4. For iPod touch with Maps, the Maps application provides your approximate location using information based on your proximity to known Wi-Fi networks (when on and available). The more accurate the available information, the smaller the circle identifying your position on the map. The feature is not available in all areas. Known Wi-Fi networks are predominantly in urban areas. In order to provide your location, data is collected in a form that does not personally identify you. If you do not want such data collected, do not enable the feature. Not enabling the feature will not impact the functionality of your iPod touch.
  5. Requires Nike + iPod Sensor, sold separately.
  6. Testing conducted by Apple in August 2012 and April 2013 using pre-production iPod touch hardware and software. The playlist contained 358 unique audio tracks consisting of content imported from CDs using iTunes (128-Kbps AAC) and content purchased from the iTunes Store (256-Kbps AAC); video content was purchased from the iTunes Store. iPod units were associated to a Wi-Fi network; all other settings were default. Battery tests are conducted with specific iPod units; actual results may vary. Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles and may eventually need to be replaced (see www.apple.com/au/support/ipod/service/battery). Battery life and number of charge cycles vary by use and settings. See www.apple.com/au/batteries for more information.
  7. Remote and mic not included.
  8. iPod and iTunes are for legal or rightholder-authorised copying only. Don’t steal music.
