The Anatomy of an iPod

The iPod:

The iPod The iPod was invented by Apple in 2001. In the last 10 years the iPod has changed multiple times. There are 5 types of iPods; mini, shuffle, classic, nano and touch.

The Impressive Decade :

The Impressive Decade Since the first iPod there has been major adjustments made to the iPod. The first obvious one is the LCD screen. The first ever iPod was black and white and coloured screen was not introduced until 2005. The buttons which are today a click wheel were once only touch buttons. The first click wheel iPod was invented in 2003. Also the memory space on the iPod has greatly improved going from as little as 5GB to a drastic 160GB. The iPod was invented for people to listen to music on and today people can browse the internet, watch films and download applications for playing games, job applications, etc.

The Anatomy :

The Anatomy There are four main parts to an iPod, they are the battery, hard drive, circuit board and the screen. Inside the iPod there is a cable attacking the back cover where the battery is to the hard drive, circuit board and screen. The battery is attached on to the back cover. There is a hard drive wrapped in foam to protect it. (hard drive will say how may GB it holds.) There is the circuit board which operates the entire iPod. The iPod’s circuit board stores all the songs, apps, internet and photos. Also there is the screen.

The battery:

The battery In the last decade the battery life has expanded immensely. The first iPod went up to 8 hours of continuous playback time. Over the years the technology of the iPod has grown and battery life has now expanded to an amazing 40hours with music playback time or 7hours with videos on the newest iPod touch. The iPod nano lasts for 24 hours with music playback and 5 hours with video playback. The iPod is technologically enhanced and it will continue to improve.

Hard Drive:

Hard Drive Hard drive is a data storage device which stores information and recordings. The hard drive holds memory between 4GB and 160GB in today's iPod range. The new iPod classic can store 40,000 songs, 200 hours of video and 25,000 photos or any combination.

Mini Circuit Board (brain):

Mini Circuit Board (brain) With the new iPod touch there is 4 parts to the circuit board which are the 3G CPU, networking components, graphics processor and flash memory. 3G CPU is processing and working the iPod. The networking component is the wireless internet. The graphic processor is for creating images, it provides vertex, pixel and geometry shaders . The flash memory is a chip that maintains stored information(music) without needing a power source. All iPod’s have them main 4 parts to the circuit board but the better the memory the better the quality.

Screen :

Screen The screen of iPods today are in colour and have a clear picture. Screens range from all different sizes. The iPod touch has a 3.5-inch (diagonal) widescreen Multi-Touch display with 960x640-pixel resolution at 326 pixels per inch.
