Updating ipod to 2 1
In the text below the engraving, look for the model number.i Pod touch (2nd generation) is model A1288, and i Pod touch (3rd generation) is model A1318Only the third-generation or fourth-generation i Pod touch can run i OS 5.In version 5 of its i OS mobile operating system, Apple introduced a new feature that allows users of its mobile devices, such as the i Pod Touch, to download and install i OS updates wirelessly.Previously, i Pod Touch users had to physically connect their device to a computer and use i Tunes to download and install an i OS update; now you can simply update your device over a standard Wi-Fi connection.That makes sense; fewer i Pods are sold these days and new models come out less frequently, so there are fewer changes to make.But any time it does release an i Pod software update, you should install it.I was concerned that I have a 2nd gen but the model #'s you share: A1318 and A1288 is not what I have. Apple doesn't release updates to the operating system that powers the i Pod as often as it does for the i Phone.
(It appears that, like the i Phone 3G, they won't get 4.3, though.) I'd recommend to download the 4.2.1 update from Apple directly and option-restore the update to your device.wiki How's Content Management Team carefully monitors the work from our editorial staff to ensure that each article meets our high quality standards.
