Low End iPod

The iPod photo

Apple introduced the iPod photo on October 26, 2004 as a premium alternative to the monochrome 4G iPod. The first color iPod used the same clickwheel design as the 4G iPod and had a larger, 220 x 176 pixel display.

The new iPods were more energy efficient and managed 15 hours of play from a 650 mAh battery. They were also slightly thicker and heavier than the monochrome 4G models.

The iPod and iPod photo lines were merged in June 2005 with the introduction of the iPod color - officially known as the iPod (with color display).
