Frequently Asked Question: Which iPod Nano Do I Have?

When it comes time to sell your gadgets, one of the toughest things (other than properly assessing the condition of your device) is knowing which generation you have. This is especially true when it comes to Apple iPods.

Not only does Apple consistently roll out new models of the iPod, but each model has several generations. The iPod nano probably has the biggest range of differences from generation to generation—however, because there are so many, it can be hard to remember which generation you have.

Here’s a guide to help!

“NextWorth asks for a lot more specifics regarding your iPad’s condition (‘is it engraved,’ for example), and offers a maximum of $274.50 for one that’s ‘like new.’ And if you have a Target store nearby, you can walk in with your iPad and walk out with cash (or a Target credit), as NextWorth has partnered with the chain.”
