    There are certain criteria that can describe each generation of the iPod touch line.

    Does it have an external speaker? If not it is 1st gen.

    Beveled back? If so it is 2nd or 3rd gen

    Camera? If so, 4th gen.

    More accurately you can look on the back of your iPod Touch for one of these numbers.

    Apple put one of these part numbers on the back of every iPod Touch.


    iPod Touch 1st generation - A1213


    iPod Touch 2nd generation - A1288


    iPod Touch 3rd generation - A1318


    iPod Touch 4th generation - A1367


    Which generation do you have?
