How to work out which iPod or iPhone you’ve got

Wednesday 9th June 2010 by Andy Simpson in How to Guides, iPhone, iPod.

Each year Apple tend to release a new iPhone and several new iPods. Here’s a quick guide to figuring out which iPod or iPhone you’ve got.

So which iPod or iPhone have I got?

The list below shows all Apple iPods and iPhones from the last few years. I’ve put the dates that the different generations were released along with the available storage capacity so you should be able to figure out pretty easily which one you’ve got. If yours isn’t listed here, take a look at last years post which shows all models of iPod and iPhone up to March 2009.
