Connecting and Disconnecting iPod shuffle
Connect iPod shuffle to your computer to sync songs and other audio files, and to charge the
battery. Disconnect iPod shuffle when you’re done.
Important: To connect iPod shuffle to your computer, use only the USB 2.0 cable that came with
iPod shuffle.
Connecting iPod shuffle
To connect iPod shuffle to your computer:
mm Plug one end of the included USB cable into the earphone port of iPod shuffle, and the other
end into a high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer.
Note: Don’t connect iPod shuffle to a USB port on your keyboard for charging.
A longer USB cable is available separately at www.apple.com/ipodstore.
The first time you connect iPod shuffle to your computer, iTunes helps you set up iPod shuffle
and sync it with your iTunes library. By default, iTunes automatically syncs songs on iPod shuffle
when you connect it to your computer. You can sync songs while your battery is charging.
If you connect iPod shuffle to a different computer and iPod shuffle is set to sync music
automatically, iTunes prompts you before syncing any music. If you click Yes, the songs and
other audio files already on iPod shuffle are erased and replaced with songs and other audio
files from the new computer iPod shuffle is connected to. For information about adding music
to iPod shuffle or using iPod shuffle with more than one computer, see Chapter 4, Listening to
Music, on page 17.
Disconnecting iPod shuffle
It’s important not to disconnect iPod shuffle from your computer while audio files are syncing
or when iPod shuffle is being used as an external disk. It’s OK to disconnect iPod shuffle if the
status light isn’t blinking orange, or if you see the “OK to disconnect” message at the top of the
iTunes window.
Important: If you see the “Do not disconnect” message in iTunes or if the status light on
iPod shuffle is blinking orange, you must first eject iPod shuffle before disconnecting it. Failing
to do so may damage files on iPod shuffle and require you to restore iPod shuffle in iTunes. For
information about restoring, see Updating and Restoring iPod shuffle Software on page 26.
If you enable iPod shuffle for disk use (see Using iPod shuffle as an External Disk on page 22),
you must always eject iPod shuffle before disconnecting it.

About the iPod shuffle Battery
iPod shuffle has a rechargeable internal battery that should be replaced only by an Apple
Authorized Service Provider.
For best results, the first time you use iPod shuffle, let it fully charge for about three hours.
The battery is 80-percent charged in about two hours and fully charged in about three hours.
If iPod shuffle isn’t used for a while, the battery might need to be recharged.
You can sync music while the battery is charging. You can disconnect and use iPod shuffle before
it’s fully charged.
Charging the iPod shuffle Battery
You can charge the iPod shuffle battery in two ways:
••
Connect iPod shuffle to your computer
••
Use the Apple USB Power Adapter, available separately.
To charge the battery using your computer:
mm Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer using the included
iPod shuffle USB cable. The computer must be turned on and not in sleep mode (some Mac
models can charge iPod shuffle while in sleep).
When the battery is charging, the status light on iPod shuffle is solid orange. When the battery
is fully charged, the status light is green. In iTunes, the battery icon next to the name of your
iPod shuffle also shows the battery status. The icon displays a lightning bolt when the battery is
charging, and a plug when the battery is fully charged.
If iPod shuffle is being used as an external disk or is syncing with iTunes, the status light blinks
orange to let you know that you must eject iPod shuffle before disconnecting it. In this case, your
battery may either be still charging or fully charged.
If you don’t see the status light, iPod shuffle might not be connected to a high-power USB 2.0
port. Try another USB 2.0 port on your computer.

Use iTunes on your computer to set up iPod shuffle to play music
and other audio content. Then connect iPod shuffle to your
computer and sync it to your iTunes library.
Read on to learn more about getting started with iPod shuffle, including:
••
Getting music from your CD collection, hard disk, or the iTunes Store (part of iTunes and
available in some countries only) into the iTunes application on your computer
••
Organizing your music and other audio into playlists
••
Syncing songs, audiobooks, podcasts, and iTunes U collections in your iTunes library with
iPod shuffle
••
Listening to music or other audio on the go
About iTunes
iTunes is the free software application you use to set up, organize, and manage your content
on iPod shuffle. iTunes can sync music, audiobooks, and audio podcasts with iPod shuffle. If you
haven’t already installed iTunes 10.7 or later (required for iPod shuffle) on your computer, you can
download it at www.itunes.com/download.
After you install iTunes, it opens automatically when you connect iPod shuffle to your computer.
You can use iTunes to import music from CDs and the Internet, buy songs and other audio
from the iTunes Store, create personal compilations of your favorite songs (called playlists), sync
iPod shuffle, and adjust iPod shuffle settings.
iTunes also has a feature called Genius, which creates instant playlists and mixes of songs from
your iTunes library that go great together. You can sync Genius mixes and playlists from iTunes to
iPod shuffle. To use Genius, you need an iTunes account. To learn how to set up Genius, see Using
Genius in iTunes on page 11.
iTunes has many other features. You can burn your own CDs that play in standard CD players (if
your computer has a recordable CD drive); listen to streaming Internet radio; watch videos and
TV shows; rate songs according to preference; and much more. For information about using
these features, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
If you already have iTunes 10.7 or later installed on your computer and you’ve set up your iTunes
library, you can skip to the next section, Connecting iPod shuffle to a Computer for the First
Time on page 11.

Setting Up Your iTunes Library
To listen to music on iPod shuffle, you first need to get that music into your iTunes library on
your computer.
There are three ways to get music and other audio into your iTunes library:
•• Purchase music and audiobooks or download podcasts online from the iTunes Store.
••
Import music and other audio from audio CDs.
••
Add music and other audio that’s already on your computer to your iTunes library.
Purchasing Songs and Download Podcasts Using the iTunes Store
If you have an Internet connection, you can easily purchase and download songs, albums, and
audiobooks online using the iTunes Store (available in selected countries). You can also subscribe
to and download audio podcasts, and you can download free educational content from iTunes U.
Video podcasts can’t be synced to iPod shuffle.
To purchase music online using the iTunes Store, you set up a free iTunes account in iTunes, find
the songs you want, and then buy them. If you already have an iTunes account, you can use that
account to sign in to the iTunes Store and buy songs.
You don’t need an iTunes Store account to play or download podcasts or iTunes U classes.
To enter the iTunes Store, open iTunes and click iTunes Store (under Store) on the left side of the
iTunes window.
Adding Songs Already on Your Computer to Your iTunes Library
If you have songs on your computer encoded in file formats that iTunes supports, you can easily
add the songs to iTunes. To learn how to get songs from your computer into iTunes, open iTunes
and choose Help > iTunes Help.
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. For more information, open
iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
Importing Music from Your Audio CDs Into iTunes
iTunes can import music and other audio from your audio CDs. If you have an Internet
connection, iTunes gets the names of the songs on the CD from the Internet (if available) and
lists them in the window. When you add the songs to iPod shuffle, the song information is
included. To learn how to import music from your CDs into iTunes, open iTunes and choose
Help > iTunes Help.
Entering Song Names and Other Information
If you don’t have an Internet connection, if song information isn’t available for music you import,
or if you want to include additional information (such as composer names), you can enter
the information manually. To learn how to enter song information, open iTunes and choose
Help > iTunes Help.
Chapter 3    Setting Up iPod shuffle
10
Organizing Your Music
In iTunes, you can organize songs and other items into lists, called playlists, in any way you want.
For example, you can create playlists with songs to listen to while exercising, or playlists with
songs for a particular mood.
You can also create Smart Playlists that update automatically based on rules you define. When
you add songs to iTunes that match the rules, they automatically get added to the Smart Playlist.
You can turn on Genius in iTunes and create playlists of songs that go great together, based
on a song you select. Genius can also organize your iTunes library automatically by sorting and
grouping songs into collections called Genius Mixes.
You can create as many playlists as you like, using any of the songs in your iTunes library. You
can’t create a playlist on iPod shuffle when it’s disconnected from iTunes. Adding a song to a
playlist or later removing it doesn’t remove it from your iTunes library.
When you listen to playlists on iPod shuffle, all playlists created in iTunes behave the same way.
You can choose them by name on your iPod shuffle.
To learn how to set up playlists in iTunes, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
Using Genius in iTunes
Genius finds songs in your iTunes library that go great together and uses them to create Genius
playlists and Genius Mixes. Genius is a free service, but you need an iTunes Store account to use
it. If you don’t have an account, you can set one up when you turn on Genius.
A Genius playlist is based on a song that you select. iTunes then compiles a Genius playlist of
songs that go great with the one you selected.
Genius Mixes are preselected compilations of songs that go great together. They’re created for
you by iTunes, using songs from your iTunes library. Each Genius Mix is designed to provide a
different listening experience each time you play it. iTunes creates up to 12 Genius Mixes, based
on the variety of music in your iTunes library.
To create Genius playlists and Genius Mixes, you first need to turn on Genius in iTunes. For
information, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
Genius playlists and Genius Mixes created in iTunes can be synced to iPod shuffle like any other
iTunes playlist. You can’t add Genius Mixes to iPod shuffle manually.
Connecting iPod shuffle to a Computer for the First Time
The first time you connect iPod shuffle to your computer after installing iTunes, iTunes opens and
the Setup Assistant appears. If iTunes doesn’t open automatically, open it yourself.
To use the iPod shuffle Setup Assistant:
1 Enter a name for iPod shuffle. This name will appear in the device list on the left side of the
iTunes window.
2 Select your settings.
Automatic syncing is selected by default. If you keep this option selected and Genius is turned
on, iTunes syncs Genius Mixes from your iTunes library to iPod shuffle. If Genius isn’t turned on,
iTunes fills iPod shuffle with songs from your iTunes library and places them in the “All Songs”
playlist. For more information about automatic and manual syncing, see the next section.
Chapter 3    Setting Up iPod shuffle
11
VoiceOver is also selected by default. Keep this option selected to hear track titles and artist
names, change your playlists, and hear battery status while you listen to iPod shuffle. For more
information, see Using VoiceOver on page 18.
3 Click Done.
You can change the device name and settings any time you connect iPod shuffle to
your computer.
After you click Done, the Summary pane appears. If you selected automatic syncing, iPod shuffle
begins syncing.
Adding Music to iPod shuffle
After your music is imported and organized in iTunes, you can easily add it to iPod shuffle.
To manage how songs and other audio content are added to iPod shuffle from your computer,
you connect iPod shuffle to your computer, and then use iTunes preferences to choose
iPod shuffle settings.
Adding Content Automatically or Manually
You can set iTunes to add music to iPod shuffle in two ways:
••
Automatically syncing: When you connect iPod shuffle to your computer, iPod shuffle is
automatically updated to match the songs and other items in your iTunes library. If Genius
is turned on the first time you sync iPod shuffle, iTunes uses up to four Genius Mixes created
from your iTunes library to fill iPod shuffle. If any free space remains, iTunes syncs additional
songs from your iTunes library. If Genius isn’t turned on, iTunes syncs songs and playlists from
your iTunes library to fill iPod shuffle.
Later, you can modify automatic syncing options to include selected playlists, artists, albums,
and genres. You can also automatically sync other audio, including podcasts, audiobooks, and
iTunes U collections. See the following sections for more information.
••
Manually managing music: When you connect iPod shuffle, you can drag individual songs
and playlists to iPod shuffle, and delete individual songs and playlists from iPod shuffle. Using
this option, you can add songs from more than one computer without erasing songs from
iPod shuffle. When you manage music manually, you must always eject iPod shuffle from
iTunes before you can disconnect it. See Managing iPod shuffle Manually on page 15.
Syncing Music Automatically
By default, iPod shuffle is set to sync all songs and playlists when you connect it to your
computer. This is the simplest way to add audio content to iPod shuffle—you just connect
iPod shuffle to your computer, let it add songs, audiobooks, audio podcasts, and iTunes U
collections automatically, and then disconnect it and go. If you added any songs to iTunes since
the last time you connected iPod shuffle, they’re synced with iPod shuffle as space allows. If you
deleted songs from iTunes, they’re removed from iPod shuffle.
Chapter 3    Setting Up iPod shuffle
12
To sync music with iPod shuffle:
mm Simply connect iPod shuffle to your computer. If iPod shuffle is set to sync automatically, the
update begins.
Important: If you connect iPod shuffle to a computer that it hasn’t synced with, a message asks if
you want to sync songs automatically. If you accept, all songs and other audio content are erased
from iPod shuffle and replaced with songs and other items from that computer. If you don’t
accept, you can still add songs to iPod shuffle manually without erasing any of the songs already
on iPod shuffle.
While music is being synced from your computer to iPod shuffle, the iTunes status window
shows progress, and you see a sync icon next to iPod shuffle in the list of devices. When the
update is done, you see the “iPod sync is complete” message in iTunes. A bar at the bottom of the
iTunes window displays how much disk space is used by different types of content.
If you don’t choose to automatically sync music to iPod shuffle during setup, you can do it later.
If there isn’t enough space on iPod shuffle for all your music, you can set iTunes to sync only
selected playlists, artists, albums, and genres.
To set iTunes to sync music from selected playlists, artists, genres, and albums to iPod shuffle:
1 Connect iPod shuffle to your computer.
2 In iTunes, select iPod shuffle in the list of devices, and then click the Music tab.
3 Select “Sync music,” and then choose “Selected playlists, artists, genres, and albums.”
4 Select the playlists, artists, genres, and albums you want.
5 To set iTunes to automatically fill any remaining space on iPod shuffle, select “Automatically fill
free space with songs.”
If you have Genius Mixes, iTunes uses them to fill the space first. If there’s no room for another
Genius Mix, iTunes fills the remaining space on iPod shuffle with other songs.
6 Click Apply.
The update begins automatically.
If you select “Sync only checked songs” in the Summary pane, iTunes syncs only items that
are checked.
Syncing Genius Mixes to iPod shuffle
You can set iTunes to sync Genius Mixes to iPod shuffle. Genius Mixes can only be
synced automatically, so you can’t add Genius Mixes to iPod shuffle if you manage your
content manually.
If your Genius Mixes don’t fill the available space and you select the “Automatically fill free space
with songs” option, iTunes selects and syncs additional songs from your iTunes library.
To set iTunes to sync selected Genius Mixes to iPod shuffle:
1 In iTunes, select iPod shuffle in the list of devices, and then click the Music tab.
2 Select “Sync music,” and then choose “Selected playlists, artists, genres, and albums.”
3 Under Playlists, select the Genius Mixes you want.
4 Click Apply.
If “Sync only checked songs” is selected in the Summary pane, iTunes syncs only items that
are checked.

Syncing Podcasts Automatically
The settings for adding podcasts to iPod shuffle are unrelated to the settings for adding songs.
Podcast settings don’t affect song settings, and vice versa. You can set iTunes to automatically
sync all or selected podcasts, or you can add podcasts to iPod shuffle manually.
To set iTunes to update the podcasts on iPod shuffle automatically:
1 In iTunes, select iPod shuffle in the list of devices, and then click the Podcasts tab.
2 In the Podcasts pane, select “Sync Podcasts.”
3 Select the podcasts, episodes, and playlists you want, and set your sync options.
4 Click Apply.
When you set iTunes to sync podcasts automatically, iPod shuffle is updated each time you
connect it to your computer.
If “Sync only checked songs” is selected in the Summary pane, iTunes syncs only items that
are checked.
Adding iTunes U Collections to iPod shuffle
iTunes U is a part of the iTunes Store that features free lectures, language lessons, audiobooks,
and more, which you can download and sync to iPod shuffle. The settings for adding iTunes U
collections to iPod shuffle are unrelated to the settings for adding other content. iTunes U
settings don’t affect other settings, and vice versa. You can set iTunes to automatically sync all or
selected iTunes U collections, or you can add iTunes U content to iPod shuffle manually.
To set iTunes to sync iTunes U content automatically:
1 In iTunes, select iPod shuffle in the list of devices, and then click the iTunes U tab.
2 In the iTunes U pane, select “Sync iTunes U.”
3 Select the collections and items you want, and set your sync options.
4 Click Apply.
When you set iTunes to sync iTunes U content automatically, iPod shuffle is updated each time
you connect it to your computer.
If “Sync only checked songs” is selected in the Summary pane, iTunes syncs only items that
are checked.
Adding Audiobooks to iPod shuffle
You can purchase and download audiobooks from the iTunes Store or audible.com, or import
audiobooks from CDs, and listen to them on iPod shuffle.
Use iTunes to add audiobooks to iPod shuffle. If you sync iPod shuffle automatically, each audiobook
in your iTunes library is synced as a separate playlist, which you can select using VoiceOver. If you
manage your content on iPod shuffle manually, you can add audiobooks one at a time.
To sync audiobooks to iPod shuffle:
1 In iTunes, select iPod shuffle in the list of devices, and then click the Books tab.
2 Select Sync Audiobooks, and then do one of the following:
••
Select “All audiobooks.”

If you can’t sync a song or other item to iPod shuffle
The song might have been encoded in a format that iPod shuffle doesn’t support. The
following audio file formats are supported by iPod shuffle. These include formats for audiobooks
and podcasts:
••
AAC (M4A, M4B, M4P) (8 to 320 kbps)
••
Protected AAC (from the iTunes Store)
••
Apple Lossless (a high-quality compressed format)
••
MP3 (8 to 320 kbps)
••
MP3 Variable Bit Rate (VBR)

••
WAV
••
AA (audible.com spoken word, formats 2, 3, and 4)
••
AIFF
A song encoded in Apple Lossless format has near CD-quality sound, but takes up only about
half as much space as a song encoded in 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’s
converted to AAC format by default.
You can have iPod shuffle automatically convert files encoded at higher bit rates to 128 kbps AAC
files as they’re synced with iPod shuffle. See Fitting More Songs on iPod shuffle on page 16.
Using iTunes for Windows, you can convert unprotected WMA files to AAC or MP3 format. This
can be useful if you have a collection of music encoded in WMA format.
iPod shuffle doesn’t support WMA, MPEG Layer 1, MPEG Layer 2 audio files, or audible.com
format 1.
If you have a song in iTunes that isn’t supported by iPod shuffle, you can convert it to a format

Apple USB Power Adapter If you use the Apple USB Power Adapter (available separately at
www.apple.com/ipodstore) to charge iPod shuffle, 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
your iPod shuffle.
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:
••

27
••
You suspect the adapter needs service or repair.
••
You want to clean the adapter.
Hearing damage Permanent hearing loss may occur if 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 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 volume limit on iPod shuffle, see Setting a Volume Limit on
page 20.

riding a bicycle is not recommended and is illegal in some areas. Check and obey the applicable
laws and regulations on the use of earphones and devices such as iPod shuffle in the areas
where you drive or ride. Be careful and attentive while driving. Stop using iPod shuffle if you find
it disruptive or distracting while operating any type of vehicle, or performing any other activity
that requires your full attention.
Important Handling Information

other property.
Carrying iPod shuffle iPod shuffle contains sensitive components. Do not bend, drop, or crush
