The iPod classic Photo 40 Gb and 60 Gb models hit the market in October, 2004, and started the color screen portable players war. As the moniker “Photo” implies, the player could view and store photos and all the improvements of the model had to do with that feature. Including: the color display, the photo view support, the color in interface and capability to playback photo to a synchronized music and on external displays, TV, etc. Sharing the telltale design with other 4th Gen family members, i. e. Click Wheel and casing the player was somewhat bulkier as compared to previous slim models.

- For models offered before February 23, 2005 an iPod compatible media player or a computer is required to download photos. Also you had to get iTunes 4.7 installed, because only previously thumbnailed photos can be immediately viewed on this iPod. The issue was improved with the model M9830LL/A, but don’t forget to have a iPod Camera Connector. Keep in mind that after that date Apple ceased bundling dock, carrying case, Firewire or AV cable on iPod classic Photo.
