    To update or restore iPhone or iPod touch


    1. Make sure you have an Internet connection and have installed iTunes 7.4 or later from www.apple.com/itunes. Apple recommends using the latest version of iTunes.
    2. Connect iPhone or iPod touch to your computer.
    3. In iTunes, select iPhone or iPod touch in the Source pane and click the Summary tab.
    4. Click "Check for Update." iTunes will tell you if there's a newer version of the iPhone or iPod touch software available.
    5. Click Update to install the latest version of the software. Or click Restore to restore iPhone or iPod touch to its original settings (this erases all data on iPhone or iPod touch). Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.

Hi how to unlock password


If you have forgotten the password or you have entered it incorrectly many times the device will be locked. The only options is to wipe your device. Now if you have your apple account synced then you can restore everything you had before, otherwise you will lose everything. Dont try the softwares they advertise, I tried many and none of them worked, Hope this helps:

My ipod is disabled, i have forgotten my password?


Try plugging your iPod into your computer, then restoring it through iTunes. First, make sure everything you need is backed up, because this will delete everything off of your iPod before restoring it to the original factory settings.

Forgotten password for ipod touch how do i unlock or fix it?


Unfortunately the only way to bypass it is with a forced restore: The forgotten password for iPod touch will have to be restored through iTunes. For which the iPod will have to be put into restore mode, which can be a slightly messy process.
  • The first step is to plug your iPod touch to your PC or Mac with the USB cable. In other words, in case you do not have your laptop computer with you, you will not be able to go through the process right now.
  • Now hold the sleep/wake button and the menu button on the iPod at the same time.
  • Keep the buttons pressed, till you see the 'restore' screen on the iPod touch. The restore screen will have an iPod cable and an iTunes disc symbol. When the restore screen appears, release the buttons.
  • With this iTunes will display iPod touch. At the same time, there will be a message displayed, that the iPod touch is in recovery mode.
  • You will now have to click on the 'Restore' button in iTunes to restore iPod touch.

I forgot the password to my ipod touch


There is only one way, you must restore the ipod which wipes out everything if you forgot it.

Updating and Restoring iPod touch Software
You can use iTunes to update or reinstall iPod touch software, restore default settings, and delete all data on iPod touch.
• If you update, the iPod touch software is updated. Your downloaded applications, settings, and data aren’t affected.
Note: In some cases, an update may also include restoring iPod touch.
• If you restore, the latest version of iPod touch software is reinstalled, settings are restored to their defaults, and data stored on iPod touch is deleted, including downloaded applications, songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. If you’ve backed up iPod touch with iTunes on your computer, you can restore data from the backup at the end of the restore process.
Deleted data is no longer accessible via the iPod touch user interface, but isn’t erased from your iPod touch. For information about erasing all content and settings, see “Resetting iPod touch” on page 122.
Update or restore iPod touch:
1 Make sure you have an Internet connection and have installed the latest version of iTunes from www.apple.com/itunes.
2 Connect iPod touch to your computer.
3 Select iPod touch in the iTunes sidebar and click the Summary tab.
4 Click “Check for Update.” iTunes tells you if there’s a newer version of the iPod touch software available.
5 Click Update to install the latest version of the software. Or click Restore to restore. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.

Is there a way to override or reset the password on the iPod Nano


Unfortunately, if the password has been forgotten, you will have to "Restore" the iPod, which will erase all the songs and other files that are currently on there.

To update or restore iPod nano:
1 Make sure you have an Internet connection and have installed the latest version of
iTunes from www.apple.com/ipod/start.
2 Connect iPod nano to your computer.
3 In iTunes, select iPod nano in the Source pane and click the Summary tab.
The Version section tells you whether iPod nano is up to date or needs a newer version
of the software.
4 Click Update to install the latest version of the software.
5 If necessary, click Restore to restore iPod nano to its original settings (this erases all data
from iPod nano). Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.

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:

http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2008/01/15touch.html

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
