Apple iPod shuffle (4th Generation with Click Wheel)

PC Magazine
17 February 2011
  • Conclusion: It's hard to get excited about an iPod with no screen, but Apple's inclusion of on-player controls makes the affordable shuffle easier to navigate—and a better value.
  • Pros: Lowest-priced iPod. Now has on-player controls for easier navigation. Voiceover feature speaks the name of songs, artists, and playlists.
  • Cons: Not a lot of storage. No screen, thus no video or photo support. Bundled with lousy earbuds.

Playlist iPod shuffle (fourth generation, late 2010)

7 September 2010
  • Conclusion: The controls on the device are fairly simple: a circular set of buttons allows you to move forward and backward between tracks (right and left), and increase and decrease the volume (top and bottom). Clicking the center button toggles between playback and pause. On the top edge of the device, there’s the same three-position power switch as in the 3G model (off, play in order, and shuffle) and a new VoiceOver button.
  • Pros: On-device controls, VoiceOver navigation, Long battery life
  • Cons: Awkward to clip on clothing, No way to lock out controls from inadvertent bumps

Apple iPod Shuffle 2010 (2GB)

9 August 2010
  • Summary: The iPod Shuffle's buttons are back, and the lightest, smallest MP3 player on the planet is now better than ever.
  • Cons: The 2GB capacity can't hold much; there's no headphone remote nor radio; the track controls tend to get pinched when clipping the iPod to your clothes; and the chances of you accidentally running it through the washing machine are quite high.

Apple iPod Shuffle 4th Generation

9 July 2012
  • Summary: If you’re after a companion to keep you company whilst you’re going on your jog but don’t want to spend £129 for a 6th Generation iPod Nano then this is the one for you. However, if you’re after a music player that is small but stores more than 2GB the iPod Nano would be a better purchase
  • Pros: New polished and vibrant look, VoiceOver feature
  • Cons: Only 2GB

Apple's fourth-generation iPod Shuffle sees the return of physical playback controls

Good Gear Guide.au
23 December 2010
  • Summary: Apple's fourth-generation iPod Shuffle is a sleek and easy-to-use device, largely thanks to the return of the controls offered by the first- and second-generation Shuffles. The VoiceOver feature is also a big winner.
  • Pros: VoiceOver button, longer battery life, return of physical playback controls
  • Cons: Difficult to determine exact battery level, no hold feature, only 2GB model available, no in-line controls on headphones

Apple iPod Shuffle (4G)

What Hi-Fi?
2 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Many thought that Apple scored an own goal with the third-generation iPod Shuffle. Stripping it of controls made for a dinkier device, but forced owners to either stick with the supplied headphones (with an in-line remote) or pay extra for an remote adaptor. Not that Apple would admit getting it wrong, but the fact that the Shuffle bears a striking resemblance to the 2nd generation model, complete with built-in controls, is as close to an admission as we're likely to...
  • Pros: Great looks, easier to use than the last version, improved sound quality
  • Cons: Only 2GB of memory means you’ll have to really compress your tunes

Apple iPod Shuffle 4G review

16 September 2010
  • Summary: Is Apple’s ‘war on buttons’ finally over? After confounding millions with its buttonlesss mouse and trackpad, it seems Apple’s purge finally went too far last year. The buttonless iPod Shuffle of 2009 was small enough to inhale and could only be controlled by a series of cryptic squeezes on its specially designed earphone cable – hardly a recipe for mass-market adoption. Unsurprisingly, it flopped.
