Apple iPod Shuffle (4th Generation) review

Apple iPod Shuffle

For the fourth-generation, Apple brought the iPod Shuffle’s buttons back, along with a few extra features that make the lightest, smallest MP3 player on the planet better than ever.

Apple’s iPod Shuffle is small, versatile, colorful, and at $49, it’s arguably the least expensive device that Apple sells. For those times when you want an impossibly small way to take music with you, the iPod Shuffle is still the most widely recognized solution around.

Main Features

  • Lightweight and Durable: The compact iPod shuffle has a lightweight and durable aluminum cover with a vibrant anodized finish
  • Flash Memory: The shuffle has 2GB of reliable flash memory that holds hundreds of songs, plus playlists, Genius Mixes, podcasts and audio books
  • Integrated Clip: The strong integrated clip attaches to your clothes or bag so that it stays with you at all times, even during long runs
  • Large Control Pad: The large circular control panel is 18% larger than on previous shuffle models, making it easier than ever to play/pause, skip tracks and adjust volume by feel
  • Sliding Mode Switch: A convenient sliding switch lets you choose between playing playlists and Genius Mixes in order or in shuffle mode
