You have heard about all the different Apple Ipod generations and now you are curious about the differences among the Apple Ipod generations. What makes the Apple Ipod generations different from one another? The simplest answer is that each of the Apple Ipod generations improves as technology advances. Yet, the answer pertaining to the difference between the Apple Ipod generations is a bit more complex than that-with each of the Apple Ipod generations, consumers will find that there are new features to use. Moreover, with each manufacturing of the Apple Ipod generations, some Apple Ipod generations fall out of favor.

First and second Apple Ipod generations, although in high demand when first manufactured, have literally fallen out of favor. The first and second Apple Ipod generations are no longer manufactured to date. Why? Again, the advances in Ipod technology allowed the future Apple Ipod generations to take the place of both the first and second Apple Ipod generations. Essentially, the first and second Apple Ipod generations had less storage capacity and could only store a maximum of 20GB worth of tunes.

There are other Apple Ipod generations that have fallen out of favor and that have been discontinued. It is important to remember however, that certain Apple Ipod distributors may have these discontinued versions in back stock and that the consumer may be able to get a good deal on the discontinued Apple Ipod generations. The Apple Ipod U2 Special Edition, the Apple Ipod Color and the Apple Ipod Photo are all Apple Ipod generations that have been discontinued.

Conversely, both the third and the fourth Apple Ipod generations are still around and going strong. The third and forth Apple Ipod generations often offer major improvements in terms of functionality over the first and second Apple Ipod generations. The casings for the third and fourth Apple Ipod generations were more slender than their predecessors and they possess more storage capacity. Plus, the number of computers that the third and forth Apple Ipod generations were capability with increased. Moreover, the third and fourth Apple Ipod generations were created so that they could be used with a docking system-a far faster way to download tunes.

The fourth Apple Ipod generation is a bit better than the third, offering consumers an LCD display screen and a ClickWheel for manipulation. The battery life in the fourth Apple Ipod generation is also a bit better than those in the third Apple Ipod generation. The present Apple Ipod generations include the Apple Ipod Nano, the Apple Ipod 30G, the Apple Ipod 60G and the Apple Ipod Shuffle. All of the Apple Ipod generations can be found on the Internet and ordered online with relative ease-although it is getting harder to get the discontinued editions.

It will be most certainly interesting to see what the future Apple Ipod generations have to offer Apple Ipod users. Already a useful tool for both organization and entertainment, it is hard to imagine what improvements the manufacturers of Apple Ipods will implement in the future Apple Ipod generations. Only time will tell as the manufacturers of Apple Ipods are a creative and innovative group: hence the complete and utter success of each of the Apple Ipod generations seen so far. Consumers will just have to wait to see what the manufacturers of Apple Ipods come up with next.
