1.5. The Case

Apple began including a simple black iPod carrying case with the more expensive iPod models in 2002, and continued the tradition with the 2003 family and the iPod Photo. If you've opened your iPod to discover they're no longer supplying the carrying case, or you're feeling left out in general, you can buy it for $40 from the Apple Web site. The case is basically a slipcover with a belt clip on the back. It holds the iPod snugly and protects it from scratches and fingerprints (Figure 1-8). The iPod Mini's belt clip snaps onto the player. If you want to wear your music on your sleeve on days when you're going beltless (or when you're working out), $30 at Apple's Web site will get you a wide black armband instead.

Figure 1-8. Some people don't like Apple's case because it covers the iPod's screen and makes using the front-panel buttons impossible. When it's on, you must control the iPod from the wired remote instead of the iPod buttons. Chapter 15 describes many alternative cases and where to get them.
