    A 2G can only go to 4.2.1

    a 3G to 5.1.1

    Identifying iPod models

    iPod touch (3rd generation)

    iPod touch (3rd generation) features a 3.5-inch (diagonal) widescreen multi-touch display and 32 GB or 64 GB flash drive. You can browse the web with Safari and watch YouTube videos with Wi-Fi. You can also search, preview, and buy songs from the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store on iPod touch.

    The iPod touch (3rd generation) can be distinguished from iPod touch (2nd generation) by looking at the back of the device. In the text below the engraving, look for the model number. iPod touch (2nd generation) is model A1288, and iPod touch (3rd generation) is model A1318.

    To update see:

    iOS 4: Updating your device to iOS 5 or later

    You need iTunes 10.5 or later on the computer

    If your iPod  have cameras you have a 4G  and can go to iOS 6. That requires iTunes 10.7 or later on the computer.
