There is no denying that the iPod has turned into a style accessory. When you purchase the Apple iPod Classic you will be given the classic look of the device together with those well known white earphones. The sleek concept also means that it can very well fit in your jacket pocket while on the go.
Intuitive and easy to use, most of us who have not owned an iPod before have at the least used one that belongs to a friend and we virtually know instinctively how to manipulate that slider wheel to get the songs playing.
The storage capacity of the 7th generation Classic iPod is yet to beat, and you will find it very hard to use up the whole 160GB with just music alone! Good thing the iPod also permits you to watch movies on the go, then! It likewise has the longest battery life compared to any previous generation, which can simply be a good thing.
The Apple iPod Classic doesn’t come with the numerous features like the more expensive iPod Touch. The latter is intended to be a multifunctional device, providing games, Wi-Fi access and apps. The former is all about watching movies and the music, and some people prefer it that way.
It’s of value to have such a vast range of storage sizes to select from, which the previous iPod generations used to provide. Not everybody requires the huge storage capacities, so it does help to save you money if you are willing to tolerate lower capacities. Regrettably the recent version of the iPod Classic only comes in 160GB. While this is great for holding all your music, it does imply there are no lower price options to opt from.
Finally, you can not run an iPod without also being forced to run iTunes. Other MP3 players function like an external hard drive, allowing you drag and drop files over to the device. The iPod, on the other hand, runs solely on iTunes which can be a little clumsy to use on Windows.
The iPod remains a must have gadget and becomes part of the lives of a huge number of people around the world. There are competitors, but none who has such a well-deserved reputation as the Apple iPod.
