The first generation iPod Shuffle was introduced on January 11th , 2005 and came in either 512MB or a 1GB version. The 1st Generation iPod Shuffle only came available in white and was the first iPod to use a flash drive. Having no screen enabled Apple to have a lower price point. The first generation iPod Shuffle has 12 hours of audio listing which is a perfect amount of battery life between charges.
Second Generation iPod Shuffle Overview
The iPod Shuffle allows you to play songs randomly from your music library or from your playlist. When using the iTunes’ “Autofill” feature, the iPod Shuffle will populate itself with as many songs as it can hold (up to a total of 1 GB of storage space), and then plays your songs in random order. The user can also select shuffle when playing their songs. They can also have the choice to turn off the shuffle mode when they want. The iPod Shuffle uses a flash memory and was the first iPod that gave us the ability to listen to music the way we want too. The iPod Shuffle is a great iPod that’s well worth the money!
