I know it's not quite what you asked, but I replaced mine using a kit on ebay for about £10. Took all of 5 minutes as the ipod is just clipped together using plastic mounts and lasts longer than the original did.
It's really quite easy to do yourself, there's videos on youtube showing you how to do it.

Thanks gents,i might give it a go!
Just one question,do you need a tool to seperate the body of the ipod from the housing?

My kit came with 3 things - the battery, instructions and a little plastic pry tool to get the case open. From memory that was all that was needed. Honestly a doddle. It was actually harder to get the case closed.

Can anyone recommend any free games for kids that don't contain tricky adverts every 2 minutes? I always get  a game for my 5 year old and then next thing shes back on the app store getting a different game as an advert has popped up and the X is always very small/hidden.

I've got the CBBC games app which is good, needs to be more games like that!

With the kids Android tablets, I switch to airplane mode before they start the games to stop the ads, maybe try that?

Couple of options off the top of my head....

1. Log into your Son’s iCloud account using Google Chrome on the Honor 10 and you should be able to use either the Find My iPhone or Find My Friends functions.

2. Pretty sure Google Maps has real time location services these days? I’m sure you can locate contacts that way too.

Hi guys, can anyone recommend the best app on ipad, free ideally that allows me to do the work I'd usually use Microsoft word for?

You can get MS Office for an iPad, I've used it and its OK but not as easy or I think fully functional as Office for Windows.

I've a new Windows 10 device, which seems to be recognising my iPod in the Device Manager list but not when I open iTunes.  Both devices and iTunes are updated with latest software, and I've run the 'update driver' function.  IPod still working/syncing fine with the old laptop.  Anyone got any advice?  Cheers.

Anyone play ‘Score! Match’ the footy game? First to two goals wins. Bit Subbuteo-esque in that you have to ‘flick’ the ball to a team mate or to shoot. Quite addictive.

Got really addicted to that, but stopped playing as my old phone would drain too quickly
We already have shit in the country, and the game of Liverpool fills life with joy. Thanks

12 months free Apple TV when you buy a device at present.  I replaced my old 6S with the iPhone SE 2020 and the offer popped up as soon as I opened the app.  Looking at the current library, 12 months will be more than enough to watch all it's content, probably twice.  It does have Mythic Quest though, so there's that.

That's long enough mate, you could get through the library in a couple of weeks. You'd be insane to actually subscribe.  It's definitely 12 months now, just checked my subscriptions again.

Anyone else having problems with itunes not recognising a device? I keep getting that message when I try and connect my ipod nano, last time it wiped off all my music. It can't be the cables as it works on my iphone fine, I have the updated version of itunes and I have modified my apple driver as well. But it still won't recognise it?

Has anyone played around with iOS 14 yet ?  It’s quite a significant update, implemented a bunch of features Android have had for a while but refined them in an Apple sort of way.

The app drawer page is a bit clunky, iOS categorize your apps which is a bit hit and miss, but with widgets it means iPhone users finally have a degree of personalization.

No longer have a full screen call page, just a little banner at the top which is more than welcome.  The phone also now notifies me when my watch is fully charged.

It’s still only a beta, but I’ve yet to encounter any serious bugs, it’s rumored to the GM, with a full release due within the next ten days or so.
