His writing has appeared in publications such as CNN.com, PC World, InfoWord, and many others. our editorial process Facebook Twitter Sam Costello Updated October 19, 2019 There's no iPod touch manual included in the small plastic box that the device comes in when you but it. But that doesn't mean that there are no iPod touch manuals. These days, it's pretty rare to get hardcopy, physical versions of things that can be delivered digitally. Just like more people stream music than buy CDs and more people download software than get it on disc, there are also fewer and fewer printed user manuals for consumer electronics. Instead, companies offer downloadable PDFs for us to consult when we need them. That's the case with Apple's iPod touch. The iPod touch only comes with a few slight pages of documentation. Apple offers iPod touch manuals at its website for every version of the iOS that the touch can run, as well as some additional information. So, whatever model of touch you have and what OS version you're using, you'll find the manual for it below. iPod touch User Guide for iOS These manuals provide overall instructions for using the iPod touch, with instructions and details specific to the version of the iOS noted below. iOS 13 - Web | Apple BooksiOS 12 - Web | Apple BooksiOS 11 - Web | Apple BooksiOS 10 - Web | Apple BooksiOS 9 - Web | Apple BooksiOS 8.4 - PDF | Web | Apple BooksiOS 7.1 - PDFiOS 6.1 - PDFiOS 5.1 - PDFiOS 4.3 - PDFiOS 3.1 - PDFiOS 3 - PDFiOS 2.2 - PDFiOS 2.1 - PDFiOS 2 - PDF Other iOS-Related Downloads iOS Deployment Reference - WebiPod touch features guide - PDF For recent versions of these manuals, Apple no longer offers manuals as PDFs.
