As Apple prepares to deck the retail shelves with the new iPod Touch, it is also preparing all potential customers with a handy iPod Touch user guide. Apple has published an eBook that goes into the ins and outs of using the new iPod Touch and all the amazing things you can do with it. Apple says it is the definitive guide if you are planning on a purchase.

You can download the user guide with iBooks on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, or via iTunes on your computer. Though you can only read it on an iOS device. The latest iPod Touch user book follows the one that came after the iOS 5 update. The 476 page guide is detailed and well-illustrated.

From the description of the accessories (e.g. the loop) to how to set it up with your PC, iTunes, and the computer, and the instructions on using it beyond that are all covered. The new iPod Touch also gets Siri, and it will take getting some used to for those who are not familiar with it. Head for the 22 pages on Siri.

As Apple says, the iPod touch User Guide is an essential part of any iPod touch library.

    "It just works" - Lies, nothing will "just work", all technology has glitches now and then.

      There is a rule or lets say a formula about errors in software. That says ...

      That with complexity and amount of code getting more the possible number of errors is getting more as well in a defines calculated number. The only remaining question is if you have tested it good enough so that most users never run in to such errors/bugs. Of course the complexity of the software also increases the amount of work you need to test it! :-)

      To assume a software package like iOS is free of all errors is an illusion. Might be that some users never run into the bugs that are inside ... but it does not mean they are notr there! :-)

    I'm stuck in a conundrum. I downloaded the Guide for iPod Touch 6 but can't seem to find it on my device. I need to read the guide that I can't get in to read... It says it's under ibooks, I have ibooks but it's not there. I've checked all the other i and ebook apps but I sure can't find it!

      Have you ticked Books on iBooks? Maybe, it's showing PDFs instead.

        Under Settings then iBooks everything is on. I truly love my iPod Touch but sometimes it is hard to find where it puts things that are downloaded. Still can't figure out where it downloaded to, but I'll keep trying to figure it out.

        Yippee! I found it. It was still in the cloud. It wasn't showing up on my iBooks shelf because I hadn't yet downloaded it. I found a couple of other things that I hadn't been able to find other times. I love it when something comes clear... Kinda like that lightbulb that goes on above cartoon character's when they have a new idea. Thanks for your help!!!!

      if you use iTunes to sync it (instead of directly downloading it) you have to make sure that cou configured the sync for Books and have to make sure that you check as well in the Books tab that you sync that book. There are a few settings at the top of the tab ... if you have not selected "All Books" you have to make sure you have selected the downloaded book for sync.

      Then in iBooks on top you have a button "Collections"there you should find an entry named "Books". in this collection you should find it then. :-)

    I may be wrong, but I thought apple prided themselves on how easy their technology was to use - "It just works." I was under the impression that they wanted anyone to pick up their product, and know what to do with it. Was I wrong, or are apple changing their game? Not that a manual should be forgoed under any circumstances, but to call it essential is what's putting me off here.

      No, you are right. There product should be as easy as "take it and use it" but as there are coming more and more features but you still have the same amount of controls on the device, using it got slightly more complex.

      I mean recently i had an iPhone user (he had it for a your or more at least) he did not know that when he double press the home button the back-grounding apps come up.

      If course a User manual is something essential. But for the advanced features. The basics like making a call, answering a call should always be so easy that you do not need any manual to use them. :-)

      So i don't thing they changed the game here. Even for the iPhone 3G there was a manual ... i think i can remember it was online manual or something. :-)

        Hm, it's just the fact that they've said "As Apple says, the iPod touch User Guide is an essential part of any iPod touch library." It sounds like it's shifting away from the "take it and use it". Hm... I can't really say whether their game is changing, I've never been loyal to apple. But that part just suggests it. I guess we'll see as time goes on.

          Maybe its part of there marketing. Getting out "how awsome" the new iOS is maybe even before people can get there hands on it ... maybe even to reach people not yet using it and then buy one?

        Well, it's a new OS too. And Siri makes its appearance for the first time. Then if you write a 400+ page guide, you would like to advertise it a bit. Too much shouldn't be read into it. The earlier version also had a guide and Steve Jobs was very in control then.

          "Siri"? Sorry but the article is about iOS 6 and Siri was introduced in iOS 5 (first on the iPhone 4S).

          But the rest i agree on! :-)

          It makes its appearance in the iPod Touch for the first time :)
