As it is a new version, you need to make sure that you know every inch of it, and the manual will not help much as it does not tell you about the hidden features. Before you buy it, make sure you are capable of protecting it, as it is a very delicate gadget. Buy the iPod touch cases and covers to make sure you are ready to adopt it. The tips are as under:
1) Turn the auto-brightness feature on from its settings menu under the device management tab. This way you will be able to save the battery life much. The light is one way to enhance the use of the battery for long. The auto brightness feature will adjust the exposure of the screen while in any frequency of light you are in so there is no glaring affect from the screen and that you are able to see what you are doing clearly on your iPod even under the dimmest of light or under the heavy sun.
2) Keeping the Wi-Fi turned off at places you do not want to use the internet connection is another way to keep the iPod awake for long. As the device will only connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot when it is available and you know it, then just turning off the automatic scanning for the Wi-Fi every other minute will be good for your device. In addition, you can save your device form automatically connected to a spambot and getting data transferred automatically without you knowing about it so the device will be safe as well.
3) Make the iPod touch safer for children as they may be able to do a lot with an online connection on the iPod.
