Instruction manuals for the iPod shuffle are available on Apple's support webpage. As of 2015, the available manuals cover the second, third and fourth generations of the product.
The instruction manuals are in PDF format. Users must install a standalone PDF reader or a browser with a built-in PDF viewer to view the manuals. The content varies between manuals, but common topics include how to set up the iPod shuffle, handling the device with care and how to load, organize and play music. The manuals also provide information on how to fix and troubleshoot the iPod shuffle should it experience problems, such as failure to turn on, respond, connect to a computer and play music.
