This morning I went to go for my run and my iPod shuffle was completely dead. No power light.Â It would not play. Â The computer wouldn’t recognise it. It wouldn’t even charge. My iPod is almost 10 years old so I figured it had reached the end of its life. Â Then I discovered this little article on the Apple website on how to force-restart an iPod. I tried it and now my iPod is going again.
All you need to do to reset any iPod Shuffle is:
- Make sure it is not plugged in.
- Turn it off for 10 seconds.
- Turn it on again.
A good reminder that in the tech world the FIRST thing you should always try when something isn’t working is turn it off and turn it on again!
