Difference Between iPod and iPod Shuffle
So, you may be wondering why an iHome wouldn’t work with the iPod Shuffle? Well, the iPod Shuffle is not a standard size, especially the newer ones. These devices do not have the screen of the traditional iPod; they only have the bottom buttons, including the play and advance song buttons.
Plus, the iPod Shuffle is extremely small, and it is meant to just clip on to a pocket, belt or purse. These devices also don’t have the standard-sized plugs of normal iPods. This is where you plug your USB cord into your iPod, which allows you to sync your device, and this is also how your iPod plugs into your iHome.
So, the takeaway from all of this is that you need to find the iHome that works with the iPod Shuffle. When you do, however, hooking up iPod Shuffle to iHome is quite easy. You simply slip it into the docking station and play your music. The most difficult part will be finding the right iHome docking station.
