Apple iPod nano,16GB, Silver

Product information

The new iPod nano is back to its original shape and is the thinnest iPod ever made at just 5.4mm thin. It is available in a variety of bright colours to suit your preference.


  • The 2.5-inch Multi-Touch display is nearly twice as big as the display on the previous iPod nano, so you can see more of the music, photos and videos you love. Buttons let you quickly play, pause, change songs or adjust the volume. The smooth new anodised aluminium design makes iPod nano feel as good as it sounds.


  • Tap to play your favourite songs. Or entire albums. Or everything by one artist. You can even browse by genres or composers. Flip through your music: album art looks great on the bigger screen. Or to keep things fresh, give iPod nano a shake and it shuffles to a different song in your music library.


  • If you’re listening to a song you love and you want to stay in the mood. Just tap Genius. It finds other songs on iPod nano that go great together and makes a Genius playlist for you.


  • Now you can watch episodes of your favourite TV programmes, Hollywood blockbusters, free video podcasts and home videos on your iPod nano. View them on the widescreen 2.5-inch Multi-Touch display. Tap to play, fast-forward, rewind and pause. With iPod nano, you can have a little entertainment whenever and wherever you want.


  • Your music experience gets even better now that iPod nano has Bluetooth 4.0 built in. Pairing iPod nano with Bluetooth-enabled headphones and supported speakers is a cinch. If your car’s sound system is Bluetooth enabled, when you sit down in the driver’s seat, your iPod nano is ready to pick up where you left off without missing a beat.


  • FM radio keeps you up with what’s going on out there, from the match, the top news stories, your favourite talk shows or whatever you love listening to. Just plug in your headphones and tap to see the controls. With Live Pause, you won’t miss a minute. Just tap to pause the song or programme, then tap again to continue. You can even rewind as far back as 15 minutes.


  • All-new headphones, called EarPods. The Re-designed Apple EarPods were tested on over 600 people to create the new shape. Unlike traditional circular earbuds, the design of the Apple EarPods is based on the geometry of the ear, making them more comfortable and stable during wear. They look unlike anything you’ve ever seen. They sound unlike any earbuds you’ve ever heard.


  • A big new change is the Lightning to USB cable. For charging and connecting to your PC the new connection is smaller and smarter. With an adapter (sold separately) it will work with existing Apple products.


  • iPod nano comes with accessibility features that help people with disabilities enjoy music, audiobooks and more.

Q & As

I pod nano Love this little I pod nano is a truly excellent device. Great to use out or in your car. 08 July 2014
Great product This was a present for my partner and he is very happy with it. He finds it easy to use and the earphones are comfortable to wear. Good overall sound quality. I am pleased with the purchase. 19 January 2014
So far so good Bought as present, so far husband very very happy. Impressed how small it is. 29 December 2013
Apple iPod nano 16GB Compact, easy to use, 4000 songs sound good. Great value for money. Only downside, not many docking speakers to choose from at the moment. 20 November 2013
I love my iPod I was given this back in May so I could listen to music while running. I had initially ruled it out thinking it was too small, but actually it's perfect and I love the fact that you don't have all the additional functions as will the iPod touch. The music quality is great and everything you would expect from Apple, but what I really love is the built in fitness function which tells me how far I'm running, pace etc and congratulates me when I beat any personnel bests! (I could do without the American accent, but you can't have everything#. the earphones are great, no leakage #although that's not so great when my daughter borrows it as I can't tell if she has it too loud!) and they stay firmly and comfortably in my ears while I'm running. Just love it! 04 October 2013
Fantastic! I was a bit hesitant about buying an Apple product but it is quite a remarkable little gaget. It was fairly easy to set up and load my existing music via iTunes, although I have yet to buy and download any new music. I'm especially impressed with the reception on the radio, but a useful feature would have been presets. I bought the Nano as opposed to the IPod Touch or Shuffle because it has bluetooth connectivity which may come in useful at a later date. 04 January 2013
Really good item Bought this to replace old iPod classic. Can't believe how small it is! Very easy to set up &sync with existing iTunes library. Comes with new apple lightning cable so you're old mai s socket charger won't work with it but other than that no complaints. 25 December 2012
Tiny size, big sound I'm very impressed by the sound quality (I listen mainly to classical music) for such a dinky thing - though ideally I'd prefer to be able to adjust base/treble. When bought, I didn't pay much attention to the radio function but find now that I use that a lot and the sound/reception is surprisingly good. As an Apple/IT Tunes newbie I found it a fiddle organising my albums and downloading them to the Nano - IT Tunes split Messiah into more than 10 'albums' which then had to be combined, which was a tortuous process. I thought my Nano had faulty sound and took ages to realise that the earphone jack has to be pushed in quite firmly so the white bit's flush with the Nano body. 30 November 2012
