The iPod shuffle 4th Generation (2015 Edition) models effectively are identical to the previous iPod shuffle 4th Gen models released in 2012, but are offered in different color options -- "space gray," gold, silver, hot pink, blue, and red (the gray and silver options have a black "control ring" and the other colors have a white one) -- and they have different operating system support for the required tethered Mac or PC. Perhaps most notably for those with an older Mac or PC, the 2015 iPod shuffle does not work with Mac OS X 10.6, Windows XP, or Windows Vista. It has some different identifiers, too, which EveryiPod.com has diligently hand-documented, as always.
Like earlier 4th Gen iPod shuffle models, the 2015 version has both "clickable ring buttons" for navigation as well as a "VoiceOver" button on top. The VoiceOver functionality reads the name of songs, artists and playlists as well as "Genius Mixes" out loud. All iPod shuffle 4th Gen models have 2 GB of internal storage capable of holding approximately 500 songs. Apple estimates "up to" 15 hours of battery life.
