It's been my experience when talking to many users here and in real life that many people aren't aware of Apple's policy in terms of their products. Many people have an issue with their iPod when its close to the one year mark. It might be because their iPod might have something like a brightness issue, or a dead battery, or something weird all together. Here are a few tips that you might find come in handy.Secret 1:
You just bought an iPod less than a year ago and now its starting to act up, or not act at all - like a dead battery. Your iPod usually comes with a 1 year warranty as soon as you buy it. It should cover most issues. This means, you should go to the Apple Store and they will most likely replace one for you for free

So you have had your iPod and its over a year, what do you do? Well if you are looking to get a new iPod, you can bring in your old one and buy a new one for 10% off. It's part of Apple's recycling program!Secret 3:
Let's say you have a pretty old iPod and its almost dead, and you just want a newer iPod. The Apple Store online has refurbished items from last year that saves you up to $70.
