Apple iPod shuffle, 2GB, Purple

Product information

Beautiful and wearable, the new shuffle lets you take hundreds of songs with you everywhere. Its main body is crafted from a single piece of aluminium and polished to a beautiful shine, so it feels solid, sleek and durable.

Along with up to 15 hours of battery life, the shuffle gives you 2GB of storage capacity, which can hold 500 songs. That’s plenty of room for the essential songs of your workout or commute. And for multiple playlists, Genius Mixes, podcasts and audiobooks too.

iPod shuffle isn’t just portable. It’s wearable too. Clip it to your shirt, jacket, workout gear, backpack or purse strap, and it stays put - whether you’re running an errand or running round the track.

The big, clickable control pad is back on the front of shuffle. It’s 18 per cent larger than on previous shuffle models, so it’s even easier to see and use the music controls. Press the centre button to play and pause. Press the outer buttons to skip forward or back and adjust volume.

The ‘shuffle’ switch is where the fun starts, and is sure to appeal to your inner rebel! Flip it to mix up iPod shuffle’s contents, keeping things unpredictable. Flip the switch to ‘straight’ to play your handpicked playlists and albums, in the order you synchronised them from iTunes. This is great for when you want to be reassured by what’s coming next.

Say you’re listening to a song and want to know the title or the artist. Just press the new VoiceOver button on top of your iPod shuffle, and it tells you. You can even use VoiceOver to hear the names of playlists and switch between them.

Note: The required software is downloadable from the Apple website.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product This iPod shuffle is 'idiot proof' - simply press the button for start and stop and another one for forward or back - easy peasy 28 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just right for the gym workout. The clip is firm so the shuffle stays in place whilst working out. There is enough music saved for the exercise session. The length of the supplied earpieces is not quite long enough to accommodate the iPod in a rear pocket. 10 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great and useful item I purchased the shuffle as I only required music to listen to at the gym. It's small, clips on any part of your clothing and stays put. For a small device, it has a lot going for it. Very impressed with the shuffle, good price, highly recommended. 04 March 2015
