You do have a 5th Generation iPod touch, and it's the 16GB model. If you check out Apple's website for current-generation iPod touches, specifically the "tech specs" page, you'll see that there are two types available today. The left one (the one with no metal circle on the bottom-left of the back) is the one you have. On your Usage page, you have two ...

Yes. You can use your iPod/iPad/iPhone without Internet. As long as whatever you are doing doesn't require an Internet connection, you will be fine. For instance, if you are listening to music that you sync'd from your computer or downloaded from iTunes, it will work. You can even play a number of games without an Internet connection. However, ...

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 ...

here's how I solved the 5-second-light-no-charge issue. You will need some patience though. Plug your 4th Gen Shuffle into a high-power USB port (preferable the stock wall charger). Wait until the red light goes on and than off. Unplug. Repeat continuously until the light doesn't go off, which means the Shuffle starts charging. It took me about 15 minutes, ...

Yes. This is a scam. You are 100% safe to close your safari tab to get rid of this message and absolutely nothing will happen. Many scammers provide fake instructions which will tell you what to do to give them access to your device, or make you give them money or personal details too, without you realising. In this case, due to the web address, it appears ...

Older iPods mounted their filesystem however for operation with a host computer however iOS devices do not mount with a Mass Storage Profile and do not (natively) appear as mounted filesystems. Unless it is actively communicating with iTunes or some other application you can usually just unplug without a problem.

Voice Control is still available on the iPhone 4S, unless you have enabled Siri in the iPhone preferences (listed under the General menu). If Siri is disabled, holding the Home button will still launch the "classic" voice control, which does work offline, and also supports a whole lot more languages than Siri currently does.

You can follow the troubleshooting options here, and if it still does not work, please let us know. It's also sounding like there's a possibility of a failed HDD in that iPod. Using diagnostic mode, can you give us the details on the "Memory" SMART test?

There’s no way on iOS other than turning off the Apple Music and seeing what tracks remain. (doing that, You should retain all settings and be able to re-enable it as soon as you have your answer.) You can easily see this on iOS and in iTunes, though with one smart playlist. That playlist syncs to iOS so you could go that route, too: Match iCloud Status is ...

No - an Apple ID is a unique string, so you can't enter the same letters for two as the first reserves that "email" and prevents a second account. You can have alases in one email account so that mails to more than one address get delivered to the same account. Google allows this with punctuation and arbitrary letters after a + in the email name. You can ...

The digital path, as long as it is good enough to work, will not make any difference. A long or poorly shielded USB cable can cause noise problems on the power supply side of the attached device. I have seen this on electronic test equipment using long and very thin USB cables. This has manifested itself as a 50Hz buzz on the 5V line which is then picked up ...

If you have a mac, you could use otool there on iOS binaries, should work with ARM-based code as well. (otool is installed with Xcode's command-line tools.)

There is one way, and it only works on IOS 5 (or higher - you need to see the camera button when you press twice the home button when the iphone is locked). To be able to listen to your voice memos while doing something else, you need to: Start the recording. Lock the screen (without pressing anything else) - this way your recording continues to play. ...

Sorry but it isn't possible from just a configuration change. Neither the iPod nor Windows have options to not mount it. I had the same requirement and ended up making my own USB cable that only passed the power but not the data connections. If you look around online, you can find the same thing for sale for only a few dollars

To avoid rendering your device unusable due to a bad upgrade file, iOS does some verification of the download before installing (likely some type of checksum to ensure the download wasn't corrupted and it's for the right device, etc.). Given that your install process fails during the verification process, it's likely that you either got a bad download (...
