Important Handling Information
Carrying iPod classic iPod classic contains sensitive components, including, in some
cases, a hard drive. Do not bend, drop, or crush iPod classic. If you are concerned about
scratching iPod classic, you can use one of the many cases sold separately.
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.

where the temperature is always between 0º and 35º C (32º to 95º F). iPod classic play
time might temporarily shorten in low-temperature conditions.

can exceed this range.
When you’re using iPod classic or charging the battery, it is normal for iPod classic to
get warm. The exterior of iPod classic functions as a cooling surface that transfers heat
from inside the unit to the cooler air outside.
Failure to follow these handling instructions could result in damage to
iPod classic or other property.
