Have an iPod touch? Sister site EveryMac.com has a Mac specs app (that also covers the iPod models) entirely designed for the small screen of the iPod touch. Check it out!

Established in 1996, EveryMac.com originally spun-off EveryiPod.com to cover the iPod separately from the Mac and with greater detail. More recently, in response to the increasing diversity of Apple's "i" line, the spin-off site was expanded as Everyi.com.

EveryiPod.com since has been repurposed to highlight iPod-specific info from Everyi.com, like detailed specs and answers for all iPod models, much as the site did prior to the introduction of the iPhone and iPad. That's not all, though.

For recent and current iPod models, EveryiPod.com also links to official iPod manuals, active discussion forums, a helpful selection of iPod reviews and videos and more.
