What You Need
To use iPod touch, you need:
 A Mac or a PC with a USB 2.0 port and one of the following operating systems:
 Mac OS X version 10.4.10 or later
 Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later
 Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate edition
 iTunes 7.4 or later, available at www.apple.com/itunes
 iTunes Store account (to purchase music over Wi-Fi)
 An Internet connection
Setting Up iPod touch
Before you can use any of the iPod touch features, you must use iTunes to set up
iPod touch. You can also register iPod touch and create an iTunes Store account
(available in some countries) if you don’t already have one.
Set up iPod touch
1 Download and install the latest version of iTunes from www.apple.com/itunes.
2 Connect iPod touch to a USB 2.0 port on your Mac or PC using the included cable.
The USB port on most keyboards doesn’t provide enough power. Unless your keyboard
has a high-powered USB 2.0 port, you must connect iPod touch to a USB 2.0 port on
your computer.
4
3 Follow the onscreen instructions in iTunes to set up iPod touch and sync your music,
video, photos, and other content.
Your computer must be connected to the Internet.
By default, iTunes automatically syncs all songs and videos in your iTunes library to
iPod touch. If you have more content in your library than will fit on iPod touch, iTunes
alerts you that it can’t sync your content. You’ll need to use iTunes to select some of
your songs, videos, and other content to sync. The following section tells you how.
Getting Music, Videos, and Other Content onto
iPod touch
iPod touch lets you enjoy music, videos, photos, and much more, with its great sound
and stunning 3.5-inch widescreen display. You get media and other content onto
iPod touch by connecting iPod touch to your computer and using iTunes to sync your
iTunes library and other information on your computer.
You can set iTunes to sync any or all of the following:
 Music and audiobooks
 Movies
 TV Shows
 Podcasts
 Photos
 Contacts—names, phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, and so on
 Calendars—appointments and events
 Webpage bookmarks
Music, movies, TV shows, and podcasts are synced from your iTunes library. If you don’t
already have content in iTunes, the iTunes Store (part of iTunes and available in some
countries) makes it easy to purchase or subscribe to content and download it to iTunes.
You can also get music into iTunes from your CDs. To learn about iTunes and the iTunes
Store, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
Chapter 1 Getting Started
5
Photos, contacts, calendars, and webpage bookmarks are synced from applications on
your computer, as described below.
You can set iPod touch to sync with only a portion of what’s on your computer.
For example, you might want to sync certain playlists, the most recent unwatched
movie, the most recent episodes of your favorite TV shows, and all unplayed podcasts.
The sync settings make it easy to get just what you want onto iPod touch. You can
adjust sync settings whenever iPod touch is connected to your computer.
Important: You cannot connect and sync more than one iPod at a time. Disconnect
one before connecting another. You should be logged in to your own user account on
the computer before connecting iPod touch. On a PC, if you sync more than one iPod
to the same user account, use the same sync settings for each.
Syncing iPod touch
You use the iPod touch settings panes in iTunes to specify the iTunes content and other
information you want to sync to iPod touch.
Sync iPod touch
1 Connect iPod touch to your computer, and open iTunes (if it doesn’t open
automatically).
The USB port on most keyboards doesn’t provide enough power. You must connect
iPod touch to a USB 2.0 port on your computer, unless your keyboard has a highpowered USB 2.0 port.
2 Select iPod touch in the iTunes source list (below Devices, on the left).
3 Configure the sync settings in each of the settings panes.
4 Click Apply in the lower-right corner of the screen.
6
Chapter 1 Getting Started
The following sections provide an overview of each of the iPod touch settings panes.
For more information, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
Summary Pane
Select “Open iTunes when this iPod is connected” to have iTunes open and sync
iPod touch automatically whenever you connect it to your computer. Deselect this
option if you want to sync only by clicking the Sync button in iTunes. For more
information about preventing automatic syncing, see page 8.
Select “Sync only checked songs and videos” if you want to sync only items that are
checked in your iTunes library.
Select “Manually manage music and videos” to turn off syncing in the Music, Movies,
and TV Shows settings panes.
Music, Movies, TV Shows, and Podcasts Panes
Use these panes to specify the iTunes library content that you want to sync. You can
sync all music, movies, TV shows, and podcasts, or select the specific playlists and items
you want on iPod touch. Audiobooks and music videos are synced along with music.
If there’s not enough room on iPod touch for all the content you’ve specified,
iTunes asks if you want to create a special playlist and set it to sync with iPod touch.
Then iTunes randomly fills the playlist.
Photos Pane
You can sync photos from iPhoto 4.0.3 or later on a Mac, or from Adobe Photoshop
Album 2.0 or later or Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 or later on a PC. You can also sync
photos from any folder on your computer that contains images.
Chapter 1 Getting Started
7
Info Pane
The Info pane lets you configure the sync settings for your contacts, calendars, and web
browser bookmarks.
Contacts
You can sync contacts with applications such as Mac OS X Address Book, Microsoft
Entourage, and Yahoo! Address Book on a Mac, or with Yahoo! Address Book, Windows
Address Book (Outlook Express), or Microsoft Outlook on a PC. (On a Mac, you can sync
contacts on your computer with more than one applications. On a PC, you can sync
contacts with only one application.)
If you sync with Yahoo! Address Book, you only need to click Configure to enter your
new login information when you change your Yahoo! ID or password after you’ve set
up syncing.
Note: Syncing won’t delete any contact in Yahoo! Address Book that contains a
Messenger ID, even if you’ve deleted the contact from your address book on your
computer. To delete a contact with a Messenger ID, log in to your Yahoo! account and
delete the contact using Yahoo! Address Book online.
Calendars
You can sync calendars from applications such as iCal and Microsoft Entourage on a
Mac, or Microsoft Outlook on a PC. (On a Mac, you can sync calendars on your
computer with more than one application on your computer. On a PC, you can sync
calendars with only one application.)
Web Browser
You can sync bookmarks from Safari on a Mac, or Safari or Microsoft Internet Explorer
on a PC.
Advanced
These options let you replace the information on iPod touch with the information on
your computer during the next sync.
Preventing Automatic Syncing
You may want to prevent iPod touch from syncing automatically if you prefer to add
items manually, or when you connect iPod touch to a computer other than the one you
sync with.
Turn off automatic syncing for iPod touch
m Connect iPod touch to your computer, then select iPod touch in the iTunes source list
(below Devices, on the left) and click the Summary tab. Deselect “Open iTunes when
this iPod is connected.” You can still use iTunes to sync manually by clicking the
Sync button.

Sync manually
m Select iPod touch in the iTunes source list, then click Sync in the lower-right corner of
the window. Or, if you’ve changed any sync settings, click Apply.
Disconnecting iPod touch from Your Computer
Unless iPod touch is syncing with your computer, you can disconnect it from your
computer at any time.
When iPod touch is syncing with your computer, it shows “Sync in progress.” If you
disconnect iPod touch before it finishes syncing, some data may not be transferred.
When iPod touch finishes syncing, iTunes shows “iPod sync is complete.”
To cancel a sync so you can disconnect iPod touch, drag the “slide to cancel” slider.

Accepting or Rejecting Suggested Corrections
iPod touch has keyboard dictionaries for English (both U.S. and U.K.), French, and
German. If you’re typing on a keyboard set to one of those languages, iPod touch uses
the corresponding dictionary to suggest a correction when it appears that you’re
misspelling a word, or to predict the word you’re currently typing. The suggested
correction or prediction appears just above or below the word you’re typing.
Suggested correction
or prediction
You don’t need to interrupt your typing to accept the suggested correction or
prediction.
 To use the suggested correction or prediction, type a space, punctuation mark, or return
character.
 To reject the suggestion, finish typing the word as you want it, then tap the “x” to
dismiss the suggestion before typing anything else. Each time you reject a
suggestion for the same word, iPod touch becomes more likely to accept your word.

Connecting to the Internet
iPod touch connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi
networks. iPod touch can join AirPort
and other Wi-Fi networks at home, at work, or at Wi-Fi hotspots around the world.
When joined to a Wi-Fi network that is connected to the Internet, iPod touch connects
to the Internet automatically whenever you use Safari, YouTube, or the iTunes Wi-Fi
Music Store.
Many Wi-Fi networks can be used free of charge. Some Wi-Fi networks require a fee. To
join a Wi-Fi network at a hotspot where charges apply, you can usually open Safari to
see a webpage that allows you to sign up for service.
Joining a Wi-Fi Network
The Wi-Fi settings let you turn on Wi-Fi and join Wi-Fi networks.
Turn on Wi-Fi
m Choose Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi on.
Join a Wi-Fi network
m Choose Settings > Wi-Fi, wait a moment as iPod touch detects networks in range,
then select a network. If necessary, enter a password and tap Join (networks that
require a password appear with a lock icon).
Once you’ve joined a Wi-Fi network manually, iPod touch will automatically connect to
it whenever the network is in range. If more than one previously used network is in
range, iPod touch joins the one last used.
When iPod touch is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon
in the status bar at
the top of the screen shows connection strength. The more bars you see, the stronger
the connection.
For more information about joining and configuring Wi-Fi settings, see “Wi-Fi” on
page 57.

Music and Video

Tap Music to listen to songs, audiobooks, and podcasts,
or tap Video to watch TV shows, movies, and other video.
iPod touch syncs with iTunes on your computer to get the songs, movies, TV shows,
and other content you’ve collected in your iTunes library.
For information about using iTunes to get music and other media onto your computer,
open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
Syncing Content from Your iTunes Library
If you’ve turned on syncing, iTunes automatically syncs content from your iTunes library
to iPod touch each time you connect it to your computer. iTunes lets you sync all of
your media, or specific songs, movies, videos, and podcasts. For example, you could set
iTunes to sync selected music playlists, the most recent unwatched movie, and the
three most recent episodes of your favorite TV show.
22
If there are more songs in your iTunes library than can fit on iPod touch, iTunes asks if
you want to create a special playlist and set it to sync with iPod touch. Then iTunes
randomly fills the playlist. You can add or delete songs from the playlist and sync again.
If you set iTunes to sync more songs, videos, and other content than can fit on
iPod touch, you can have iTunes automatically delete random content from iPod touch
to make room, or you can stop the sync and reconfigure your sync settings.
When you sync podcasts or audiobooks on iPod touch with those on your computer,
both iTunes and iPod touch remember where you stopped listening and start playing
from that position.
For more information about syncing iPod touch with your iTunes library, see “Getting
Music, Videos, and Other Content onto iPod touch” on page 5.
Transferring Purchased Content from iPod touch to Another
Authorized Computer
Music, video, and podcasts sync from your iTunes library to iPod touch, but not from
iPod touch to your iTunes library. However, content you purchased using the iTunes
Wi-Fi Music Store on iPod touch is automatically copied to your iTunes library.
You can also transfer content on iPod touch that was purchased using iTunes on one
computer to an iTunes library on another authorized computer.
Transfer content from iPod touch to another computer
m Connect iPod touch to the other computer. iTunes asks if you want to transfer
purchased content. You can also connect iPod touch and, in iTunes, choose File >
Transfer Purchases.
To play the content, the computer must be authorized to play content from your iTunes
account.
Supported Music and Video Formats
Only songs and videos encoded in formats that iPod touch supports are transferred to
iPod touch. For information about which formats iPod touch supports, see page 73.
Converting Videos for iPod touch
You can add videos other than those purchased from iTunes to iPod touch, such as
videos you create in iMovie on a Macintosh or videos you download from the Internet.
If you try to add a video from iTunes to iPod touch and a message says the video can’t
play on iPod touch, you can convert the video.
Convert a video to work with iPod touch
m Select the video in your iTunes library and choose Advanced > “Convert Selection for
iPod.” Then add the converted video to iPod touch.

Safety and Handling
·
A
Read all safety information below and operating instructions before using
iPod to avoid injury.
Software License Agreement
Use of iPod touch is subject to the Apple and third-party software license terms found
at: www.apple.com/legal/sla
Important Safety Information
WARNING: Failure to follow these safety instructions could result in fire, electric shock,
or other injury or damage.
Handling iPod
Do not drop, disassemble, open, crush, bend, deform, puncture, shred, microwave,
incinerate, paint, or insert foreign objects into iPod.
Avoiding Water and Wet Locations
Do not use iPod in rain, or near washbasins or other wet locations. Take care not to spill
any food or liquid on iPod. In case iPod gets wet, unplug all cables, turn off iPod (press
and hold the Sleep/Wake button, and then slide the onscreen slider) before cleaning,
and allow it to dry thoroughly before turning it on again. Do not attempt to dry iPod
with an external heat source, such as a microwave oven or hair dryer.
Repairing iPod
Never attempt to repair or modify iPod yourself. iPod does not contain any userserviceable parts. If iPod has been submerged in water, punctured, or subjected to a
severe fall, do not use it until you take it to an Apple Authorized Service Provider. For
service information, choose iPod Help from the Help menu in iTunes or go to
www.apple.com/support/ipodtouch. The rechargeable battery in iPod should be
replaced only by an Apple Authorized Service Provider. For more information about
batteries, go to: www.apple.com/batteries
66
Charging iPod
To charge iPod, use only: the included Apple Dock Connector to USB Cable with an
Apple USB Power Adapter or a high-power USB port on another device that is
compliant with the USB 2.0 standard; another Apple-branded product or accessory
designed to work with iPod touch; or a third-party accessory certified to use Apple’s
“Made for iPod” logo.
Read all safety instructions for any products and accessories before using with iPod.
Apple is not responsible for the operation of third-party accessories or their compliance
with safety and regulatory standards.
If you use the Apple USB Power Adapter to charge iPod, make sure that the power
adapter is fully assembled before you plug it into a power outlet. Then insert the Apple
USB Power Adapter firmly into the power outlet. Do not connect or disconnect the
Apple USB Power Adapter with wet hands. Do not use any power adapter other than
the Apple USB Power Adapter to charge iPod.
The Apple USB Power Adapter may become warm during normal use. Always allow
adequate ventilation around the Apple USB Power Adapter and use care when
handling. Unplug the Apple USB Power Adapter if any of the following conditions exist:
 The power cord or plug has become frayed or damaged.
 The adapter is exposed to rain, liquid, or excessive moisture.
 The adapter case has become damaged.
 You suspect the adapter needs service or repair.
 You want to clean the adapter.
Avoiding Hearing Damage
Permanent hearing loss may occur if the earbuds or headphones are used at high
volume. Set the volume to a safe level. You can adapt over time to a higher volume of
sound that may sound normal but can be damaging to your hearing. If you experience
ringing in your ears or muffled speech, stop listening and have your hearing checked.
The louder the volume, the less time is required before your hearing could be affected.
Hearing experts suggest that to protect your hearing:
 Limit the amount of time you use the earbuds or headphones at high volume.
 Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
 Turn the volume down if you can’t hear people speaking near you.
For information about how to set a maximum volume limit on iPod, see “Set a volume
limit for music and videos” on page 63.
Appendix A Safety and Handling
67
Driving Safely
Use of iPod and headphones (even if used only in one ear) while operating a vehicle is
not recommended and is illegal in some areas. Be careful and attentive while driving.
Stop using iPod if you find it disruptive or distracting while operating any type of
vehicle, or performing any activity that requires your full attention.
Avoiding Eyestrain
When watching video or reading text on iPod, avoid prolonged use and take breaks to
prevent eyestrain.
Glass Parts
The outside cover of the iPod touch screen is made of glass. This glass could break if
iPod is dropped on a hard surface or receives a substantial impact. If the glass chips or
cracks, do not touch or attempt to remove the broken glass. Stop using iPod until the
glass is replaced by an Apple Authorized Service Provider. Glass cracked due to misuse
or abuse is not covered under the warranty.
Repetitive Motion
When you perform repetitive activities such as typing on iPod, you may experience
occasional discomfort in your hands, arms, shoulders, neck, or other parts of your body.
If you continue to have discomfort during or after such use, stop use and see a
physician.
For Vehicles Equipped with an Air Bag
An air bag inflates with great force. Do not store iPod or any of its accessories in the
area over the air bag or in the air bag deployment area.
Exposure to Radio Frequency Energy
iPod touch contains a radio transmitter and receiver. When on, iPod touch can receive
and send out radio frequency (RF) energy through its antenna. The iPod touch antenna
is located near the back left corner of iPod touch as you hold the end containing the
dock connector facing down. iPod touch is designed and manufactured to comply with
the limits for exposure to RF energy set by the Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) of the United States and other countries. The exposure standard employs a unit
of measurement known as the specific absorption rate, or SAR.
iPod touch has been tested, and meets the SAR exposure requirements for Wi-Fi
operation.
If you are concerned about exposure to RF energy, you can limit your exposure by
limiting the amount of time using iPod touch, since time is a factor in how much
exposure a person receives, and by placing more distance between your body and iPod
touch, since exposure level drops off dramatically with distance.
68
Appendix A Safety and Handling
Additional Information
For more information from the US FCC about exposure to RF energy, see:
www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety
For information about the scientific research related to RF energy exposure,
see the EMF Research Database maintained by the World Health Organization at:
www.who.int/emf
Radio Frequency Interference
Nearly every electronic device is subject to radio frequency interference from external
sources if inadequately shielded or designed, or otherwise not configured to be
compatible. As a result, iPod touch may cause interference with other devices. Read the
following information and instructions to avoid interference problems:
Aircraft Regulations of the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other
regulatory bodies in other countries may prohibit using wireless devices while in the
air. For more information about how to turn off the iPod touch Wi-Fi transmitter, see
“Turn Wi-Fi on or off” on page 57.
Vehicles RF signals may affect installed or inadequately shielded electronic systems in
motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or its representative regarding your
vehicle.
Electronic Devices Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF signals.
However, certain electronic equipment may not be shielded against the RF signals from
iPod touch.
Pacemakers To avoid potential interference with pacemakers, persons with
pacemakers:
 Should always keep iPod touch more than six inches from their pacemaker when the
device is turned on
 Should not carry iPod touch in a breast pocket
If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place, turn iPod touch off
immediately.
Other Medical Devices If you use any other personal medical device, consult the
device manufacturer or your physician to determine if it is adequately shielded from
external RF energy.
Turn of iPod touch in health care facilities when any regulations posted in these areas
instruct you to do so. Hospitals and health care facilities may use equipment that is
sensitive to external RF energy.
Posted Facilities Turn off iPod touch in any facility where posted notices so require.
Appendix A Safety and Handling
69
Important Handling Information
NOTICE: Failure to follow these handling instructions could result in damage to iPod
or other property.
Carrying iPod
iPod contains sensitive components. Do not bend, drop, or crush iPod. If you are
concerned about scratching iPod, you can use one of the many cases sold separately.
Using Connectors and Ports
Never force a connector into a port. Check for obstructions on the port. If the
connector and port don’t join with reasonable ease, they probably don’t match.
Make sure that the connector matches the port and that you have positioned the
connector correctly in relation to the port.
Keeping iPod Within Acceptable Temperatures
Operate iPod in a place where the temperature is always between 0º and 35º C (32º to
95º F). Battery life might temporarily shorten in low-temperature conditions.
Store iPod in a place where the temperature is always between -20º and 45º C (-4º to
113º F). Don’t leave iPod in your car, because temperatures in parked cars can exceed
this range.
When you’re using iPod or charging the battery, it is normal for iPod to get warm.
The exterior of iPod functions as a cooling surface that transfers heat from inside the
unit to the cooler air outside.
Keeping the Outside of iPod Clean
To clean iPod, unplug all cables and turn off iPod (press and hold the Sleep/Wake
button, and then slide the onscreen slider). Then use a soft, slightly damp, lint-free
cloth. Avoid getting moisture in openings. Don’t use window cleaners, household
cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives to clean iPod.
Disposal and Recycling Information
iPod Disposal and Recycling
You must dispose of iPod properly according to local laws and regulations. Because
iPod contains electronic components and a battery, iPod must be disposed of
separately from household waste. When iPod reaches its end of life, contact local
authorities to learn about disposal and recycling options. For more information about
Apple’s recycling program, go to: www.apple.com/environment/recycling

72
Appendix B Tips and Troubleshooting
If you can’t add or play a song, video, or other item
The media may have been encoded in a format that iPod touch doesn’t support.
The following audio file formats are supported by iPod touch. These include formats for
audiobooks and podcasting:
 AAC (M4A, M4B, M4P, up to 320 Kbps)
 Apple Lossless (a high-quality compressed format)
 MP3 (up to 320 Kbps)
 MP3 Variable Bit Rate (VBR)
 WAV
 AA (audible.com spoken word, formats 2, 3, and 4)
 AIFF
The following video file formats are supported by iPod touch:
 H.264 (Baseline Profile Level 3.0)
 MPEG-4 (Simple Profile)
A song encoded using Apple Lossless format has full CD-quality sound, but takes up
only about half as much space as a song encoded using AIFF or WAV format. The same
song encoded in AAC or MP3 format takes up even less space. When you import music
from a CD using iTunes, it is converted to AAC format by default.
Using iTunes for Windows, you can convert nonprotected WMA files to AAC or MP3
format. This can be useful if you have a library of music encoded in WMA format.
iPod touch does not support WMA, MPEG Layer 1, MPEG Layer 2 audio files,
or audible.com format 1.
If you have a song or video in your iTunes library that isn’t supported by iPod touch,
you may be able to convert it to a format iPod touch supports. See iTunes Help for
more information.
If you can’t remember your passcode
You must restore the iPod touch software. See “Updating and Restoring iPod touch
Software” on page 74.
If you entered contacts on iPod touch that you don’t want to sync to your computer
Replace contacts on iPod touch with information from your computer.
