Where to Download iPod Touch Manuals for Every Model

iPod touch manuals


There's no iPod Touch manual included in the small plastic box that the device comes in. But that doesn't mean that no iPod Touch manuals exist.

It's pretty rare to get physical versions of things that can be delivered digitally these days. Just like more people stream music than buy CDs and more people download software than get it on disc, there aren't many printed user manuals for consumer electronics. Instead, companies offer downloadable PDFs.

That's the case with Apple's iPod Touch user guides. The iPod Touch only comes with a few slight pages of documentation. Apple offers iPod Touch manuals at its website for every compatible version of the iOS, as well as some other information. So, whatever model of touch and version of the OS you have, you'll find the right manual below.

These iPod touch manuals provide overall instructions for using the iPod, with instructions and details specific to each version of the iOS.

Other iOS-Related Downloads

  • iOS Deployment Reference​​ - Web
  • iPod touch features guide - PDF

For recent versions of the iPod touch manuals, Apple no longer offers PDFs. It has replaced them with Apple Books documents and web versions. The Apple Books app comes pre-loaded on iOS devices and Macs, so you can download those documents and open them in the app without getting any new software.

iPod Touch Documentation For Each Model

Apple also provides documentation for recent iPod touch models. Most of the information you want is in the iOS guides from the last section, but these PDFs include some additional legal and regulatory detail about each those models.
