The Apple iPod Mini was a miniature version of the famous iPod that Apple released from 2004 to 2005. The device contained a standard scroll wheel found on the older iPods, had a monochrome screen and was available in either 4 GB or 6 GB versions.

The iPod Mini was never a device I liked. While it was smaller than the original iPod (now called the iPod Classic), it was never that much smaller. On top of that, you had a limited storage space. For someone like me who has hundreds of gigs of music, the small audio capacity was very limiting. The battery life on the device was only eight hours on the original one, but the newer one bumped it up to eighteen.

The device itself was marketed more towards people who were active with their lifestyle. If you were a runner or someone who does lots of exercising while listening to music, you were the target audience of the iPod Mini. It seemed to work nicely thanks to the smaller form factory and ability to not skip like crazy.

The headphones that come with this unit are pretty bad. They are cheaply made and sound pretty thin overall. Most people who got an iPod during this time (and even today) tend to replace them with higher quality headphones. The navigation of the unit remains unchanged from the fourth, fifth and sixth generation units, so there’s no issues when it comes to finding your music thanks to Apple’s extremely intuitive interface.

In the end, the device was short lived thanks to the introduction of the iPod Nano. In fact, the Nano is still made to this day. While the device wasn’t too bad at the time, it still had its flaws. Considering how much Apple has advanced during these six years, I wouldn’t even buy one used due to reliability issues.
