Music. Feel the beat.
Your greatest hits. And taps. And swipes.
The best things in life have a soundtrack, and that’s where iPod nano shines. The easy-to-use Multi-Touch display gives you total control of your music experience. Tap to play, or tap Music to browse your collection by songs, albums, artists, playlists, genres or composers. You can even customise your Home screens so your music is organised just how you like.
Clip on some tunes.
With the built-in clip, you can walk, run, ride or dance with your favourite songs on your sleeve (or pocket, jacket or bag). The album art of the song you’re listening to fits perfectly on the display.
Shake it up.
Add a little spontaneity to your listening pleasure. Give iPod nano a shake and it shuffles to a different song in your music library. Shake to Shuffle is perfect for when you’re not in any particular music mood. You never know what you’re going to hear, and you’ll always be pleasantly surprised.

Play all day. And all night.
The built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery gives you up to 24 hours of non-stop music.* So when you clip on an 8GB or 16GB iPod nano, you’ll have plenty of tunes to make it through your commute, your workout and beyond.
Fitness. Meet your new personal trainer.
Track your walk. Or your run.
The built-in accelerometer in iPod nano gives you real-time feedback on your workout, and you can upload data to the Nike+ website. There’s no need to connect a receiver or use a shoe sensor to track your steps, distance, pace and time. Just clip on iPod nano and go. In the gym, connect iPod nano to a Nike + iPod–compatible cardio machine to keep track of every workout. Back at your computer, upload all your data to the Nike+ website to create personal goals, check your progress and challenge your friends to top your results.Learn more about Nike + iPod

Genius. The music mixmaster.

Your own personal DJ.
Say you’re listening to a song you love and you want to stay in the groove. Just tap Genius. It finds other songs on your iPod nano that go great together and makes a Genius playlist for you. For more song combinations you wouldn’t have thought of yourself, create Genius Mixes in iTunes and sync the ones you like to your iPod nano. Then tap the Genius Mixes icon and rediscover songs you haven’t heard for a while — or find music you forgot you even had.
FM radio. Touch that dial.

Ride the airwaves on iPod nano. The FM tuner shows the artist, song or programme you’re listening to. Just tap to see the radio controls, flick the radio dial to change stations and tap to set your favourites.
If you need to take a break from listening, don’t miss a minute of radio time with Live Pause. Tap to pause a song or programme, then tap again to continue where you left off. You can rewind as much as 15 minutes or fast-forward to catch up to the live broadcast.
iTunes. For your iPod-playing pleasure.

Everything you need to be entertained.
iTunes is the best way to fill your iPod nano with the latest music, podcasts, audiobooks and more. It’s also the best way to browse and organise the ever-expanding digital media collection on your Mac or PC. Everything you buy on the iTunes Store — and any music from CDs you import — appears in your iTunes library. You can make your own playlists, create Genius playlists, choose Genius Mixes and sync it all to your iPod nano. And you can download iTunes free.
The world’s No.1 music store.
Load your iPod nano with your favourite tunes. Or browse over 19 million songs and discover even more. You can search by artist name, song or album title and pick exactly the songs you want. The Genius sidebar recommends new music based on the songs you already love. When you find something that sparks your interest, listen to the free 90-second preview. Click once to buy the song and it starts downloading instantly. Sync your iPod nano to iTunes and you’re ready to rock. It’s the fastest, easiest way to build a digital music collection for your iPod nano.
iPod nano features VoiceOver, the world’s first gesture-based screen reader. Touch the screen to hear a description of the item under your finger, then double-tap, drag or flick to control iPod nano. Use the optional Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic to control your music without looking at the screen. VoiceOver tells you the name of the song or artist — and it speaks 29 languages.
White on Black
If you prefer higher contrast, iPod nano lets you change the display to white on black. Use the White on Black feature in any application, as well as on the Home screen.
If your hearing is limited in one ear, turn on Mono Audio to route audio into both earbuds so you can hear both channels in either ear.
