Apple iPod shuffle 2nd GenThe iPod shuffle (Second Generation - Silver) uses a tiny 1.07 inch tall, 0.98 inch wide, and 0.33 inch deep case -- effectively the size of the previously released iPod Radio Remote -- including a "clip" that makes it easy to attach the iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) to a pocket or other piece of clothing. Apple brags that it is nearly "half the size of the original... just half a cublic inch in volume, [and] weighs just half an ounce."

The second generation model lacks the integrated USB port of the first generation model, but instead has a headphone jack that provides connectivity for the headphones, music synchronization, and power (via a tiny USB dock).

It uses 1 GB of flash memory, capable of supporting 240 songs, but as it lacks a display, does not support photo slideshows or video playback. Apple reports an estimated 12 hours of battery life.

On January 30, 2007, Apple introduced a line of colored iPod shuffle models available in orange, green, blue, and pink, as well as silver. The silver model that is a part of the iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) Colors series is identical to this one except that it ships with revised earbuds that are designed to sit in the ear without foam "caps" -- previously introduced with the iPod 5th Generation Enhanced and iPod nano 2nd Generation -- and the packaging uses gray text instead of green.
