Updating ipod shuffle
If your version of i OS is current, the screen tells you so, and you don’t see those buttons.
The latest version of i Tunes causes havoc with syncing the older Shuffle. Then, according to the Apple Discussion Forums, you should be having problems.While i Tunes 8.1 doesn’t actually break the i Pod, it makes it a pain to use.All you need to do is select which updates to download and then click the Install button to download them.
If an update is available, a dialog appears to ask permission to download it.
Connect the i Pod to your computer and select it in the i Tunes source pane (in the Devices section).
