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!
