Yes it does. From this Apple KB doc: [The] iPod nano uses the earphone or headphone cord as an antenna, so you must connect the earphone or headphone cord to the iPod to receive a radio signal.

Correct, on a stock iPod that is non jail broken, you can only delete music via iTunes.

The 5th Gen nano still had a click wheel, so you should just have to click the center button twice, and then turn the click wheel left or right to adjust ratings. And yes, these should sync back to iTunes.

Most tiny radios use the headset as an antenna, and as Apple points out explicitly, so do they. Regular speakers and other earphones would work similarly, though perhaps not as well as the pair that came with the nano, as it likely has a specific length to best pick up FM transmissions. All wires receive radio signals, and depending on the configuration ...

All iPhones and iPods with the Lightning connector use USB 2.0. From Wikipedia: The Lightning connector … provides an interface to USB 2.0 (for data and charging) Also, if you look the USB end of a Lightning cable, it doesn't have the additional pins for USB 3.0. There is actually no point to having USB 3.0, since the flash memory in iPods and iPhones ...

The battery in your iPod has died. I suggest making an appointment at your local Apple Store Genius Bar and they may be able to replace it for you.

Go to the stop watch and press start, now slide back to the watch face and it should stay on.

Yes. From the iPod nano manual (page 29): [The] iPod nano uses the earphone or headphone cord as an antenna, so you must connect earphones or headphones to iPod nano in order to receive a radio signal. Where is the Antenna? Where is the antenna? How can I get the best possible radio reception? The iPod Radio Remote uses your earbuds as an ...

Yes it does. I just tried it the other day to see what it does. The only thing that does not work is the mic. It will control the play, pause, volume up and down. Really sweet!

It looks like this iPod doesn't have this feature: it's not mentioned in the manual (http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/iPod_nano_6thgen_User_Guide.pdf) - even in the index. However, you can go to all items starting with a certain letter. From the manual (on page 20): If the list you’re browsing has an index, drag your finger down the index to show ...

It's very tricky. You have to disassemble the whole iPod nano as the guide for clip removal on iFixit shows. This is a picture taken from the second last step:

Unfortunately, there is no a way to prevent the iPod nano from going to sleep mode.

The 6th gen Nano can now be updated with a software update which introduced the features from the 7th gen, including 16 watch faces, some of which are digital. Version 1.2 of the iPod nano software brings improved fitness features (which are better able to detect and track walking or running work outs), as well as the new single icon scrolling interface, ...

Apple have software at the Genius Bars which can diagnose faults, read the current voltage, and assess the health of devices but I've never been able to find a copy before. There is a diagnostic mode for iPods which you can access by resetting the device with Menu+Select and then upon seeing the Apple logo, press Rewind+Select. There are many tests on there ...

The 6th Generation iPod Nano does not support video decoding or playback1. However, it can demux video files and play any supported audio streams in those files2. Instead of the video stream, it displays a single keyframe. This is useful for music videos or podcasts, where you might still want to listen to the audio only, but it's not the same thing as ...

I've had a similar problem. The only solution I found was an application called TouchCopy12. It allows you to transfer songs off of an iDevice directly to iTunes. I'm pretty sure you are able to transfer playlists as well. You get (I think) 82 transfers before you have to register. The link to the program, as well as information about it, will be located ...

Songs from Apple Music (as in your iCloud Music Library) can only be used with iOS devices, Android phones and computers running macOS or Windows. From apple.com, emphasis mine: Before you can download music to listen to offline, you need to add the songs, albums, or playlists to your Library. Then, in the Music app on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch; ...

There is a way but I still haven't tested it there is a menu called iTerm on the ipod nano 6g.You can enter it by clicking all buttons at once.Wait a few seconds and it will appear then you enter "power"--->"power drain mode" and it shoud keep the screen from locking.Of course it won't last long because the battery will be completly used-up.This is for more ...

I've had an Ipod nano for all of 12 hours. It fell from my pocket while I was standing at a pedestian lights and shattered. Not impressed with the durability at all!

It certainly does; I've had one.

Settings > General > DateTime > Time on Wake (Set this to on) Thanks comically high signal to noise post!

The short answer is yes. The rule of thumb when dealing with DC power adapters is to ensure that the polarity and voltage matches and that the adapter can supply at least as much current as the electronic device requires. Incorrect voltage or mismatched polarity can damage an electronic device; insufficient current will only result in insufficient power to ...

The iPod nano and classic iPods get loaded a custom firmware that could be downloaded from the internet and possibly loaded with a tool other than iTunes, but on a PC you could easily use whatever disk tool you want to erase the drive by reformatting it. Since this would render the device unbootable, you will not want to sell it to a user that's not ...

The current (7th) generation of iPod Nano (I'm assuming your referring to the 7th) utilizes a Lightning port. This port in turn utilizes a Lightening to USB 2.0 cable, that in turn plugs into the appropriate USB 3.0 (or earlier) port on your computer. In other words, it will plug into a USB 3.0 port even though it's only a USB 2.0 cable. Here is a link to ...

It's in VoiceOver mode (an accessibility feature). I don't have an iPod nano, but on iOS, under General, there's an Accessibility menu where you can turn it off.


2

You can fix it, but its a bit of a pain. Swipe left using two fingers till you get to Settings and double tap. Double tap General. Fiddle with it till you get down to Accessibility and Double tap. Double tap VoiceOver. Turn off VoiceOver. Should work fine from there. I had the same problem with my 6th Gen Nano.

Unfortunately, there's no way that I'm aware of around this—the reasoning being that you should have your eyes on the road, I suppose. However, if your stereo is intelligent enough to directly read music from your iPod, as it seems to be, you can usually navigate through your music with its interface. That's typically clunkier than the iPod interface, but it ...

The best way to handle an iPod Restore is to do it from iTunes. iTunes knows what it is & how to format it - it will even actually format differently depending on whether you have iTunes on a PC or Mac, to enable easier file handling afterwards. If it's a model with a lock switch at the top [red dot visible] switch the lock off first [white dot] - ...

Do what my grandpa would do and record the screen with another camera. :^) The iPod Nano 5g does not run iOS. I'm not aware if it has any kind of undocumented screengrabbing or debugging-over-USB capability. It does have a video output, but only the audio or video content being played is output--it does not mirror the screen; so using an AV cable with ...
