apps that cut off

Try rebooting your iPod touch by holding down both the sleep/wake and home buttons at the same time for 10 seconds. Should come back with an Apple logo.

The reason for this is that your iPod, like a computer, can start to run low on memory.

Another solution is, if you recently upgraded to OS 3.0, some applications might not be compatible yet. You can either wait for an update from the developer, or check if there's any current updates for the apps that don't open.

Software upgrade 2.0 for ipod touch

Hey Dennis A,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the "software upgrades" that are included with specific 16GB iPod Touch models are part of Apple's January software upgrade. The upgrade provides e-mail functionality, access to Google maps, weather forecasts, stock market tracking and a notepad program for the iPod Touch.

Apart from this slight change in pre-installed software, there should not be any other difference between the two 16GB iPod Touch models available through your local Best Buy™ store - they have identical hardware specifications.

Please keep in mind that a product's model number may change slightly whenever a minor cosmetic or major software update occurs. In this particular case, the model number MA627LL/A was superseded with model number MA627LL/B to reflect the changes in the factory-installed programs. Both models are considered to be the same generation of hardware.

If you would like more information about this software upgrade, I would strongly suggest checking out the following link:


Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
