Apple updated the compact iPod mini in February 2005, dropping the gold color and adding a 6 GB model. Visually the 2G iPod mini is distinguished by colored printing on the clickwheel.
To protect its minuscule 1.0″ hard drive, the iPod mini was built of aluminum.
The 2G iPod mini was available in four colors – silver, blue, pink, and green – and two capacities, 4 GB and 6 GB. This was the last model to bear the iPod mini name. It was replaced by the iPod nano in September 2005.
