Restarting or resetting iPod touch
If something isn’t working right, try restarting iPod touch, force quitting an app, or resetting
Restart iPod touch: Press and hold 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, press and hold 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 quit: Press and hold the On/Off button for a few seconds until a red slider
appears, then press and hold the Home button until the app quits.
You can also force an app to quit by removing it from the recents list. See “Opening and switching
apps” on page 18.
Reset iPod touch: Press and hold both the On/Off button and the Home button for at least ten
seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
