Updating ipod software

24-Oct-2017 23:37

After you have activated your i Pod nano, i Tunes will periodically check for software updates (or firmware updates, as they are called).

Since i Tunes performs this on a set schedule, you also have the ability to manually check for updates.

i Tunes automatically checks for updates of i OS or the i Pod software and lets you update your i Pod without affecting the music or data stored on it.

i Tunes includes updates for all generations of i Pods and can detect which i Pod models you have.

Previously, i Pod Touch users had to physically connect their device to a computer and use i Tunes to download and install an i OS update; now you can simply update your device over a standard Wi-Fi connection. Select "General" and tap "Software update." Your i Pod Touch will now check whether an i OS update is available for download or not.

If it is, a new screen containing details about the update will appear.

In this tutorial, we'll explain how to see when i Tunes last checked for updates on your i Pod nano, how to manually check for updates, and briefly explain the process of updating your i Pod (nano or otherwise) - this works quite similarly for all i Pod models, and the process is near fully automated.

When your i Pod nano is plugged in to your computer, load its profile in i Tunes by clicking on its name (it is listed in the left column, under "Devices").
