Restarting and resetting iPod touch
If something isn’t working right, try restarting iPod touch, forcing an app to close, or resetting
Restart iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button until the red slider appears. Slide your finger
across the slider to turn off iPod touch. To turn iPod touch back on, hold down the On/Off button
until the Apple logo appears.
If you can’t turn off iPod touch or if the problem continues, you may need to reset iPod touch.
A reset should be done only if turning iPod touch off and on doesn’t resolve the problem.
Force an app to close: Hold down the On/Off button for a few seconds until a red slider appears,
then hold down the Home button until the app quits.
You can also remove an app from the recents list to force it to close. See “Opening and switching
apps” on page 18.
Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
