Unopened first generation original white Apple iPod Shuffle, Order M9724LL/A (512MB). The green box features a front window showing the audio player, text to the top and sides, “PC + Mac 120 Songs 512MB” and “iPod Shuffle,” and specifications to the back. In brand new, sealed condition, with a few light marks. Encapsulated and graded by CAS with a master grade of “85” and a real grade of “87.3.”

Released by Apple on January 11, 2005, the first-generation iPod Shuffle was designed to be a small and lightweight device primarily focused on music playback, simplicity, and user-friendly controls, which Steve Jobs emphasized during the audio player’s launch: ‘With iPod shuffle, we’ve created the most wearable iPod ever…It’s incredibly easy to use with its super-simple controls and ultra-compact design.’

With a unique and ultra-compact design, the iPod Shuffle resembled a small USB stick without a display or click wheel. In spite of its size, the 512 MB model could hold approximately 120 songs, the 1 GB model could hold approximately 240 songs, and the player’s battery life offered up to 12 hours of continuous music playback on a single charge. In addition to the player’s VoiceOver feature, the iPod Shuffle’s built-in USB connector at the base eliminated the need for a separate cable and allowed users to connect it directly to a computer's USB port for syncing music and charging.
