Use iTunes on your computer to set up iPod shuffle to play music and other audio content. Then connect iPod shuffle to your computer and sync it to your iTunes library.
Read on to learn more about getting started with iPod shuffle, including:

  • Getting music from your CD collection, hard disk, or the iTunes Store (part of iTunes and available in some countries only) into the iTunes application on your computer
  • Organizing your music and other audio into playlists
  • Syncing songs, audiobooks, podcasts, and iTunes U collections in your iTunes library with iPod shuffle
  • Listening to music or other audio on the go

About iTunes
iTunes is the free software application you use to set up, organize, and manage your content on the iPod shuffle. iTunes can sync music, audiobooks, and audio podcasts with iPod shuffle. If you haven’t already installed iTunes 10.7 or later (required for iPod shuffle) on your computer, you can download it at www.itunes.com/download.
After you install iTunes, it opens automatically when you connect the iPod shuffle to your computer. You can use iTunes to import music from CDs and the Internet, buy songs and other audio from the iTunes Store, create personal compilations of your favorite songs (called playlists), sync iPod shuffle, and adjust iPod shuffle settings.
iTunes also has a feature called Genius, which creates instant playlists and mixes of songs from your iTunes library that go great together. You can sync Genius mixes and playlists from iTunes to iPod shuffle. To use Genius, you need an iTunes account. To learn how to set up Genius, see Using Genius in iTunes on page 11.
iTunes has many other features. You can burn your own CDs that play in standard CD players (if your computer has a recordable CD drive); listen to streaming Internet radio; watch videos and TV shows; rate songs according to preference; and much more. For information about using these features, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
If you already have iTunes 10.7 or later installed on your computer and you’ve set up your iTunes library, you can skip to the next section, Connecting iPod shuffle to a Computer for the First Time on page 11.

Setting Up Your iTunes Library
To listen to music on iPod shuffle, you first need to get that music into your iTunes library on your computer.Apple iPod Shuffle 4th Generation-1
There are three ways to get music and other audio into your iTunes library:

  • Purchase music and audiobooks or download podcasts online from the iTunes Store.
  • Import music and other audio from audio CDs.
  • Add music and other audio that’s already on your computer to your iTunes library.

Purchasing Songs and Download Podcasts Using the iTunes Store

If you have an Internet connection, you can easily purchase and download songs, albums, and audiobooks online using the iTunes Store (available in selected countries). You can also subscribe to and download audio podcasts, and you can download free educational content from iTunes U. Video podcasts can’t be synced to iPod shuffle.
To purchase music online using the iTunes Store, you set up a free iTunes account in iTunes, find the songs you want, and then buy them. If you already have an iTunes account, you can use that account to sign in to the iTunes Store and buy songs. You don’t need an iTunes Store account to play or download podcasts or iTunes U classes. To enter the iTunes Store, open iTunes and click iTunes Store (under Store) on the left side of the iTunes window.

Adding Songs Already on Your Computer to Your iTunes Library
If you have songs on your computer encoded in file formats that iTunes supports, you can easily add the songs to iTunes. To learn how to get songs from your computer into iTunes, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.  Using iTunes for Windows, you can convert nonprotected WMA files to AAC or MP3 format. This can be useful if you have a library of music encoded in WMA format. For more information, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.

Importing Music from Your Audio CDs Into iTunes
iTunes can import music and other audio from your audio CDs. If you have an Internet connection, iTunes gets the names of the songs on the CD from the Internet (if available) and lists them in the window. When you add the songs to the iPod shuffle, the song information is included. To learn how to import music from your CDs into iTunes, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.

Entering Song Names and Other Information
If you don’t have an Internet connection, if song information isn’t available for music you import, or if you want to include additional information (such as composer names), you can enter the information manually. To learn how to enter song information, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.

Organizing Your Music
In iTunes, you can organize songs and other items into lists, called playlists, in any way you want. For example, you can create playlists with songs to listen to while exercising, or playlists with songs for a particular mood.
You can also create Smart Playlists that update automatically based on rules you define. When you add songs to iTunes that match the rules, they automatically get added to the Smart Playlist.
You can turn on Genius in iTunes and create playlists of songs that go great together, based on a song you select. Genius can also organize your iTunes library automatically by sorting and grouping songs into collections called Genius Mixes.
You can create as many playlists as you like, using any of the songs in your iTunes library. You can’t create a playlist on iPod shuffle when it’s disconnected from iTunes. Adding a song to a playlist or later removing it doesn’t remove it from your iTunes library.
When you listen to playlists on iPod shuffle, all playlists created in iTunes behave the same way. You can choose them by name on your iPod shuffle.
To learn how to set up playlists in iTunes, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
Using Genius in iTunes
Genius finds songs in your iTunes library that go great together and uses them to create Genius playlists and Genius Mixes. Genius is a free service, but you need an iTunes Store account to use it. If you don’t have an account, you can set one up when you turn on Genius.
A Genius playlist is based on a song that you select. iTunes then compiles a Genius playlist of songs that go great with the one you selected.
Genius Mixes are preselected compilations of songs that go great together. They’re created for you by iTunes, using songs from your iTunes library. Each Genius Mix is designed to provide a different listening experience each time you play it. iTunes creates up to 12 Genius Mixes, based on the variety of music in your iTunes library.
To create Genius playlists and Genius Mixes, you first need to turn on Genius in iTunes. For information, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
Genius playlists and Genius Mixes created in iTunes can be synced to iPod shuffle like any other iTunes playlist. You can’t add Genius Mixes to iPod shuffle manually.
Connecting iPod shuffle to a Computer for the First Time
The first time you connect iPod shuffle to your computer after installing iTunes, iTunes opens and the Setup Assistant appears. If iTunes doesn’t open automatically, open it yourself.
To use the iPod shuffle Setup Assistant:

  1. Enter a name for iPod shuffle. This name will appear in the device list on the left side of the iTunes window.
  2. Select your settings.
    Automatic syncing is selected by default. If you keep this option selected and Genius is turned on, iTunes syncs Genius Mixes from your iTunes library to iPod shuffle. If Genius isn’t turned on, iTunes fills iPod shuffle with songs from your iTunes library and places them in the “All Songs” playlist. For more information about automatic and manual syncing, see the next section.
    VoiceOver is also selected by default. Keep this option selected to hear track titles and artist names, change your playlists, and hear battery status while you listen to iPod shuffle. For more information, see Using VoiceOver on page 18.
  3. Click Done.
    You can change the device name and settings any time you connect iPod shuffle to your computer.
    After you click Done, the Summary pane appears. If you selected automatic syncing, iPod shuffle begins syncing.

Adding Music to iPod shuffle
After your music is imported and organized in iTunes, you can easily add it to iPod shuffle.Apple iPod Shuffle 4th Generation-11
To manage how songs and other audio content are added to iPod shuffle from your computer, you connect iPod shuffle to your computer, and then use iTunes preferences to choose iPod shuffle settings.

Adding Content Automatically or Manually
You can set iTunes to add music to the iPod shuffle in two ways:

  • Automatically syncing: When you connect iPod shuffle to your computer, iPod shuffle is automatically updated to match the songs and other items in your iTunes library. If Genius is turned on the first time you sync the iPod shuffle, iTunes uses up to four Genius Mixes created from your iTunes library to fill iPod shuffle. If any free space remains, iTunes syncs additional songs from your iTunes library. If Genius isn’t turned on, iTunes syncs songs and playlists from your iTunes library to fill iPod shuffle.
    Later, you can modify automatic syncing options to include selected playlists, artists, albums, and genres. You can also automatically sync other audio, including podcasts, audiobooks, and iTunes U collections. See the following sections for more information.
  • Manually managing music: When you connect iPod shuffle, you can drag individual songs and playlists to iPod shuffle, and delete individual songs and playlists from iPod shuffle. Using this option, you can add songs from more than one computer without erasing songs from iPod shuffle. When you manage music manually, you must always eject iPod shuffle from iTunes before you can disconnect it. See Managing iPod shuffle Manually on page 15.

Syncing Music Automatically
By default, iPod shuffle is set to sync all songs and playlists when you connect it to your computer. This is the simplest way to add audio content to iPod shuffle—you just connect iPod shuffle to your computer, let it add songs, audiobooks, audio podcasts, and iTunes U collections automatically, and then disconnect it and go. If you added any songs to iTunes since the last time you connected iPod shuffle, they’re synced with iPod shuffle as space allows. If you deleted songs from iTunes, they’re removed from iPod shuffle.

To sync music with iPod shuffle:

  • Simply connect iPod shuffle to your computer. If iPod shuffle is set to sync automatically, the update begins.

Important: If you connect iPod shuffle to a computer that it hasn’t synced with, a message asks if you want to sync songs automatically. If you accept, all songs and other audio content are erased from iPod shuffle and replaced with songs and other items from that computer. If you don’t accept, you can still add songs to iPod shuffle manually without erasing any of the songs already on iPod shuffle.
While music is being synced from your computer to iPod shuffle, the iTunes status window shows progress, and you see a sync icon next to iPod shuffle in the list of devices. When the update is done, you see the “iPod sync is complete” message in iTunes. A bar at the bottom of the iTunes window displays how much disk space is used by different types of content.
If you don’t choose to automatically sync music to iPod shuffle during setup, you can do it later.
If there isn’t enough space on iPod shuffle for all your music, you can set iTunes to sync only selected playlists, artists, albums, and genres.
To set iTunes to sync music from selected playlists, artists, genres, and albums to iPod shuffle:

  1. Connect iPod shuffle to your computer.
  2. In iTunes, select iPod shuffle in the list of devices, and then click the Music tab.
  3. Select “Sync music,” and then choose “Selected playlists, artists, genres, and albums.”
  4. Select the playlists, artists, genres, and albums you want.
  5. To set iTunes to automatically fill any remaining space on iPod shuffle, select “Automatically fill free space with songs.”
    If you have Genius Mixes, iTunes uses them to fill the space first. If there’s no room for another Genius Mix, iTunes fills the remaining space on iPod shuffle with other songs.
  6. Click Apply.

The update begins automatically.
If you select “Sync only checked songs” in the Summary pane, iTunes syncs only items that are checked.
Syncing Genius Mixes to iPod shuffle
You can set iTunes to sync Genius Mixes to iPod shuffle. Genius Mixes can only be synced automatically, so you can’t add Genius Mixes to iPod shuffle if you manage your content manually.
If your Genius Mixes don’t fill the available space and you select the “Automatically fill free space with songs” option, iTunes selects and syncs additional songs from your iTunes library.

To set iTunes to sync selected Genius Mixes to iPod shuffle:

  1. In iTunes, select iPod shuffle in the list of devices, and then click the Music tab.
  2. Select “Sync music,” and then choose “Selected playlists, artists, genres, and albums.”
  3. Under Playlists, select the Genius Mixes you want.
  4. Click Apply.
    If “Sync only checked songs” is selected in the Summary pane, iTunes syncs only items that are checked.

Syncing Podcasts Automatically
The settings for adding podcasts to iPod shuffle are unrelated to the settings for adding songs. Podcast settings don’t affect song settings, and vice versa. You can set iTunes to automatically sync all or selected podcasts, or you can add podcasts to iPod shuffle manually.
To set iTunes to update the podcasts on iPod shuffle automatically:

  1. In iTunes, select iPod shuffle in the list of devices, and then click the Podcasts tab.
  2. In the Podcasts pane, select “Sync Podcasts.”
  3. Select the podcasts, episodes, and playlists you want, and set your sync options.
  4. Click Apply.

When you set iTunes to sync podcasts automatically, iPod shuffle is updated each time you connect it to your computer.
If “Sync only checked songs” is selected in the Summary pane, iTunes syncs only items that are checked.
Adding iTunes U Collections to iPod shuffle
iTunes U is a part of the iTunes Store that features free lectures, language lessons, audiobooks, and more, which you can download and sync to iPod shuffle. The settings for adding iTunes U collections to iPod shuffle are unrelated to the settings for adding other content. iTunes U settings don’t affect other settings, and vice versa. You can set iTunes to automatically sync all or selected iTunes U collections, or you can add iTunes U content to iPod shuffle manually.
To set iTunes to sync iTunes U content automatically:

  1. In iTunes, select iPod shuffle in the list of devices, and then click the iTunes U tab.
  2. In the iTunes U pane, select “Sync iTunes U.”
  3. Select the collections and items you want, and set your sync options.
  4. Click Apply.
    When you set iTunes to sync iTunes U content automatically, iPod shuffle is updated each time you connect it to your computer.
    If “Sync only checked songs” is selected in the Summary pane, iTunes syncs only items that are checked.

Adding Audiobooks to iPod shuffle
You can purchase and download audiobooks from the iTunes Store or audible.com, or import audiobooks from CDs, and listen to them on iPod shuffle.
Use iTunes to add audiobooks to the iPod shuffle. If you sync iPod shuffle automatically, each audiobook in your iTunes library is synced as a separate playlist, which you can select using VoiceOver. If you manage your content on an iPod shuffle manually, you can add audiobooks one at a time.
To sync audiobooks to iPod shuffle:

  1. In iTunes, select iPod shuffle in the list of devices and then click the Books tab.
  2. Select Sync Audiobooks, and then do one of the following:
    • Select “All audiobooks.”

  3. Click Apply.
    The update begins automatically.

Managing iPod shuffle Manually
If you manage iPod shuffle manually, you can add and remove individual songs, playlists, podcasts, and audiobooks. You can add music and other audio content from multiple computers to iPod shuffle without erasing items already on iPod shuffle.
You can add Genius playlists, but not Genius Mixes, to iPod shuffle manually.
Setting iPod shuffle to manually manage music turns off automatic sync options in the Music, Podcasts, and iTunes U panes in iTunes. You can’t manually manage some content and automatically sync other content at the same time.
If you set iTunes to manage content manually, you can set it later to sync automatically.
To manually manage audio content on iPod shuffle:

  1. In iTunes, select iPod shuffle in the list of devices and then click the Summary tab.
  2. In the Options section, select “Manually manage music.”

The 5 Rs: Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, RestoreRemember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with the iPod shuffle. Try these steps one at a time until the problem is resolved. If one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to specific problems.

  • Reset iPod shuffle by turning it off, waiting 10 seconds, and then turning it back on again.
  • Retry with a different USB 2.0 port if you cannot see iPod shuffle in iTunes.
  • Restart your computer, and make sure you have the latest software updates installed.
  • Reinstall iTunes software from the latest version on the web.
  • Restore the iPod shuffle. See Updating and Restoring iPod shuffle Software on page 26.
    If the status light glows red persistently or you hear the error message “Please use iTunes to restore”
  • Connect iPod shuffle to your computer and restore it in iTunes. See Updating and Restoring iPod shuffle Software on page 26.
    If the iPod shuffle won’t turn on or respond

  • Turn iPod shuffle off, wait 10 seconds, and then turn it on again.
  • You may need to restore iPod shuffle software. See Updating and Restoring iPod shuffle Software on page 26.

If iPod shuffle isn’t playing music

  • iPod shuffle might not have any music on it. If you hear the message “Please use iTunes to sync music,” connect the iPod shuffle to your computer to sync music to it.
  • Slide the three-way switch off and then on again.
  • Make sure the earphone or headphone connector is pushed in all the way.
  • Make sure the volume is adjusted properly. A volume limit might be set. See Setting a Volume Limit on page 20.
  • iPod shuffle might be paused. Try pressing Play/Pause (’).

If you connect iPod shuffle to your computer and nothing happens

  • Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer. Your iPod shuffle battery may need to be recharged.
  • Make sure you’ve installed the latest iTunes software from http://www.itunes.com/download.
  • Try connecting the USB cable to a different USB 2.0 port on your computer. Make sure the USB cable is firmly connected to iPod shuffle and to the computer. Make sure the USB connector is oriented correctly. It can be inserted only one way.
  • iPod shuffle might need to be reset. Turn iPod shuffle off, wait 10 seconds, and then turn it back on again.
  • If iPod shuffle doesn’t appear in iTunes or the Finder, the battery may be completely discharged. Let iPod shuffle charge for several minutes to see if it comes back on.
  • Make sure you have the required computer and software. See If you want to double-check the system requirements on page 26.
  • Try restarting your computer.
  • You might need to restore iPod software. See Updating and Restoring iPod shuffle Software on page 26.
  • iPod shuffle may need to be repaired. You can arrange for service on the iPod shuffle Service & Support website at www.apple.com/support/ipodshuffle/service.
    If you can’t sync a song or other item to iPod shuffle

The song might have been encoded in a format that iPod shuffle doesn’t support. The following audio file formats are supported by iPod shuffle. These include formats for audiobooks and podcasts:

  • AAC (M4A, M4B, M4P) (8 to 320 kbps)
  • Protected AAC (from the iTunes Store)
  • Apple Lossless (a high-quality compressed format)
  • MP3 (8 to 320 kbps)
  • MP3 Variable Bit Rate (VBR)
  • Audible (formats 2, 3, 4, Audible Enhanced Audio, AAX, and AAX+)
  • WAV
  • AA (audible.com spoken word, formats 2, 3, and 4)
  • AIFF

A song encoded in Apple Lossless format has near CD-quality sound but takes up only about half as much space as a song encoded in AIFF or WAV format. The same song encoded in AAC or MP3 format takes up even less space. When you import music from a CD using iTunes, it’s converted to AAC format by default.
You can have iPod shuffle automatically convert files encoded at higher bit rates to 128 kbps AAC files as they’re synced with iPod shuffle. See Fitting More Songs on iPod shuffle on page 16.
Using iTunes for Windows, you can convert unprotected WMA files to AAC or MP3 format. This can be useful if you have a collection of music encoded in WMA format.
iPod shuffle doesn’t support WMA, MPEG Layer 1, MPEG Layer 2 audio files, or audible.com format 1.
If you have a song in iTunes that isn’t supported by iPod shuffle, you can convert it to a format iPod shuffle supports. For more information, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.

Safety and Handling

This chapter contains important safety and handling information for the iPod shuffle.
WARNING: Failure to follow these safety instructions could result in fire, electric shock, or other injuries, or damage to iPod shuffle or other property. Read all safety information below before using iPod shuffle.
Keep this user guide for your iPod shuffle handy for future reference.
Important Safety Information

  • Proper handling Do not drop, disassemble, open, crush, bend, deform, puncture, shred, microwave, incinerate, paint, or insert foreign objects into the iPod shuffle.
  • Water and wet locations Do not use iPod shuffle in rain, or near washbasins or other wet locations. Take care not to spill any food or liquid on iPod shuffle. In case iPod shuffle gets wet, unplug all cables, turn off iPod shuffle (slide the three-way switch to OFF) before cleaning, and allow it to dry thoroughly before turning it on again. Do not attempt to dry iPod shuffle with an external heat source, such as a microwave oven or hair dryer.
  • iPod shuffle repairs Never attempt to repair or modify iPod shuffle yourself. If iPod shuffle has been submerged in water, punctured, or subjected to a severe fall, do not use it until you take it to an Apple Authorized Service Provider. iPod shuffle doesn’t contain any user-serviceable parts. Disassembling iPod shuffle, including the removal of the back cover, may cause damage that is not covered under warranty. For service information, choose iPod Help from the Help menu in iTunes or go to www.apple.com/support/ipod/service. The rechargeable battery in iPod shuffle should be replaced only by an Apple Authorized Service Provider. For more information about batteries, go to www.apple.com/support/ipod/service/battery.
  • Apple USB Power Adapter If you use the Apple USB Power Adapter (available separately at www.apple.com/ipodstore) to charge iPod shuffle, make sure that the power adapter is fully assembled before you plug it into a power outlet. Then insert the Apple USB Power Adapter firmly into the power outlet. Do not connect or disconnect the Apple USB Power Adapter with wet hands. Do not use any power adapter other than the Apple USB Power Adapter to charge your iPod shuffle.
    The Apple USB Power Adapter may become warm during normal use. Always allow adequate ventilation around the Apple USB Power Adapter and use care when handling.
    Unplug the Apple USB Power Adapter if any of the following conditions exist:
    • The power cord or plug has become frayed or damaged.
    • The adapter is exposed to rain, liquids, or excessive moisture.
    • The adapter case has become damaged.
    • You suspect the adapter needs service or repair.
    • You want to clean the adapter.
  • Hearing damage Permanent hearing loss may occur if earbuds or headphones are used at high volume. Set the volume to a safe level. You can adapt over time to a higher volume of sound that may sound normal but can be damaging to your hearing. If you experience ringing in your ears or muffled speech, stop listening and have your hearing checked. The louder the volume, the less time is required before your hearing could be affected. Hearing experts suggest that to protect your hearing:
    • Limit the amount of time you use earbuds or headphones at high volume.
    • Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings
    • Turn the volume down if you can’t hear people speaking near you.
      For information about how to set a volume limit on an iPod shuffle, see Setting a Volume Limit on page 20.
  • Headphones safety Use of earphones (even if used in only one ear) while driving a vehicle or riding a bicycle is not recommended and is illegal in some areas. Check and obey the applicable laws and regulations on the use of earphones and devices such as iPod shuffle in the areas where you drive or ride. Be careful and attentive while driving. Stop using iPod shuffle if you find it disruptive or distracting while operating any type of vehicle, or performing any other activity that requires your full attention.

Important Handling Information
NOTICE: Failure to follow these handling instructions could result in damage to iPod shuffle or other property.

  • Carrying iPod shuffle contains sensitive components. Do not bend, drop, or crush iPod shuffle.
  • Using connectors and ports Never force a connector into a port. Check for obstructions on the port. If the connector and port don’t join with reasonable ease, they probably don’t match. Make sure that the connector matches the port and that you have positioned the connector correctly in relation to the port.
  • Keeping iPod shuffle within acceptable temperatures Operate iPod shuffle in a place where the temperature is always between 32º and 95º F (0º and 35º C). iPod shuffle play time might temporarily shorten in low-temperature conditions.
  • Store iPod shuffle in a place where the temperature is always between -4º and 113º F (-20º and 45º C). Don’t leave iPod shuffle in your car, because temperatures in parked cars can exceed this range.
  • When you’re using an iPod shuffle or charging the battery, it’s normal for iPod shuffle to get warm. The exterior of the iPod shuffles functions as a cooling surface that transfers heat from inside the unit to the cooler air outside.
  • Keeping the outside of iPod shuffle clean To clean iPod shuffle, unplug all cables, turn it off (slide the three-way switch to OFF), and use a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth. Avoid getting moisture in openings. Don’t use window cleaners, household cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives to clean the iPod shuffles.
