iPod Classic Features
The iPod Classic is a portable media player marketed by Apple Inc. To date, there have been six generations of the iPod Classic, as well as a spin-off that was later re-integrated into the main Classic line. All generations use a 1.8-inch hard drive for storage.
The "Classic" retronym was introduced with the introduction of the sixth-generation iPod Classic on 5 September 2007; prior to this, an iPod Classic was simply referred to as an iPod.
iPods with color displays use anti-aliased graphics and text, with sliding animations. All iPods have five buttons and the later generations (4th and above) have the buttons integrated into the click wheel — a design which gives an uncluttered, minimalist interface. The buttons are:
- Menu: to traverse backwards through the menus, toggle the backlight on older iPods, and jump to the main menu
- Center: to select a menu item
- Play / Pause: this doubles as an off switch when held
- Skip Forward / Fast Forward
- Skip Backwards / Fast Reverse
In March 2002, Apple added limited PDA-like functionality: text files can be displayed, while contacts and schedules can be viewed and synchronized with the host computer. Some built-in games are available, including Brick, Parachute, Solitaire, and Music Quiz. A firmware update released in September 2006 brought some extra features to fifth generation iPods including adjustable screen brightness, gapless playback, and downloadable games.
