Description


As introduced on September 9, 2008, the Apple iPod classic (Late 2008/Second Generation) was equipped with a 120 GB 4200 RPM ATA-66 hard drive capable of supporting "up to" 30,000 songs in "128-Kbps AAC format" or "up to" 150 hours of video. On September 9, 2009, Apple upgraded the hard drive to 160 GB -- increasing the capacity to 40,000 songs or 200 hours of video -- and adding support for "Genius Mixes" via a software patch on September 28, 2009, but it otherwise essentially is identical.

Externally, the iPod classic (Late 2008/2G) models also effectively are identical to the 80 GB version of the "original" iPod classic (6G) that these models replaced -- the "original" 160 GB configuration only varies in thickness -- with a 2.5" color LCD display with an LED backlight (320x240, 163 ppi) and either a silver or black anodized aluminum front and a chromed stainless steel back. Like the "original" iPod classic models, the iPod classic (Late 2008/2G) models also do not support video out directly from the headphone jack, but only from the dock, an unfortunate "downgrade" from the iPod 5G Enhanced models.

However, the iPod classic (Late 2008/2G) models do offer modestly improved battery life compared to the "original" 80 GB model that was replaced -- 36 hours of music and 6 hours of video (the previous "original" 160 GB model provided greater battery life, 40 hours of music and 7 hours of video).

The software used by the iPod classic (Late 2008/2G) models is similar to that used by the "original" iPod classic, with the same "MacOS X Leopard" inspired interface enhancements -- including the Cover Flow option for selecting albums -- and the same iQuiz, Klondike, and Vortex games. However, the iPod classic (Late 2008/2G) models also add a "Genius" feature to dynamically create playlists based on "songs that go great together" and the "Late 2009" models provide the aforementioned "Genius Mixes" functionality.
