The iPod is a portable media player sold by Apple. As of August 2010, Apple offers four versions of the iPod: the iPod Classic, iPod Touch, iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle. The iPod can hold from 2 gigabytes (GB) of media files to 160 GB of media files, depending on the model and memory configuration of the iPod device. All iPod models have a standard 3.5-millimetre headphone jack that you can use as an audio output for the purpose of connecting your iPod to a stereo amplifier.
