The colourful, clip-and-go iPod shuffle with buttons, VoiceOver and playlists
As beautiful as it is wearable
Crafted from a single piece of aluminium and polished to a beautiful shine, the new iPod shuffle feels solid, sleek and durable. Choose from gleaming silver, blue, green, orange or pink for the perfect fashion accessory.
Never leave a favourite tune behind. Along with up to 15 hours of battery life, iPod shuffle gives you 2GB of storage capacity, which can hold hundreds of songs. That's plenty of room for the essential songs of your workout or commute. And for multiple playlists, Genius Mixes, podcasts and audiobooks too.

iPod shuffle isn't just portable. It's wearable too. Clip it to your shirt, jacket, workout gear, backpack or purse strap, and it stays put - whether you're running an errand or running round the track.
Buttons are back
It's back - the big, clickable control pad on the front of iPod shuffle. It's 18 per cent larger than on previous iPod shuffle models, so it's even easier to see and use the music controls. Press the centre button to play and pause. Press the outer buttons to skip forward or back and adjust volume. Click, click, click. It's music to your fingers.
Maybe you're the spontaneous type. Or maybe you prefer a little order. Just flip the shuffle switch to suit your listening style. Flip it to the left, and you'll hear your music in a refreshingly random way. Flip it to the middle, and your songs play in order. Or flip to the right to turn iPod shuffle off.
It tells you what you want to hear
Say you're listening to a song and want to know the title or the artist. Just press the new VoiceOver button on top of your iPod shuffle, and it tells you. You can even use VoiceOver to hear the names of playlists and switch between them. And if your battery needs charging, VoiceOver tells you that too.
A French love song. A Spanish bolero. An Italian cantata. Your music library has songs from all over the world. That's why VoiceOver speaks 25 different languages. So it can tell you song titles and artists in their native tongues or any language you choose.
The perfect mix for every mood

iTunes on your Mac or PC makes it easy to load up your iPod shuffle. Just choose the playlists, audiobooks, podcasts and other audio files you want, then sync.
You probably have multiple playlists in iTunes on your computer. One for your commute. One for the gym. One for just chilling out. Sync all those playlists to iPod shuffle, and you can play the perfect mix for whatever mood strikes you. VoiceOver tells you the name of each playlist, so it’s easy to switch between them and find the one you want without looking.
There's another way to get a good mix of music on iPod shuffle: let Genius do the work. Activate Genius in iTunes on your computer, and it automatically finds songs that sound great together. Then it creates Genius Mixes, which you can easily sync to your iPod shuffle. It's the perfect way to rediscover songs you haven't listened to in ages.
