The iPod comes in many different models which perform many of the same functions. The iPod Nano is the smallest iPod with a touchscreen, and has a built in FM tuner to listen to the radio. The iPod Shuffle is a tiny flash drive that plays music, but it’s ultra-portability is highly desired. The iPod Classic the most common and recognized iPod and also has the most storage with a built in hard drive. The iPod Touch is like an iPhone without the phone, and is the most versatile of them all; and is why we see the iPod Touch in for repair more than the others. The main iPod repair issues stem from the display and hard drive. The screen is always an issue, and with the iPod Classic and iPod Touch, it’s common to see a broken screen every now and then due to the kind of hands-on use it requires. The smaller iPods are fairly stable and don’t need much work as being so small, they’re not easy to damage, although we do get requests to copy music off to other devices. Some iPod Classics have standard hard drives – hard drives with spinning motors and disks which are prone to damage from vibration and degradation. When you have a bad iPod hard drive, the iPod might hang on certain songs, or just not work at all. The iPod Touch comes with solid state hard drives, so it’s much more stable, and the issues we see are mainly the same as the iPhone in terms of broken screens and data recovery.
