Updating ipod software
Previously, i Pod Touch users had to physically connect their device to a computer and use i Tunes to download and install an i OS update; now you can simply update your device over a standard Wi-Fi connection. Select "General" and tap "Software update." Your i Pod Touch will now check whether an i OS update is available for download or not.If it is, a new screen containing details about the update will appear.Firmware updates for the i Pod are downloaded from the i Tunes application, and require an active Internet connection to download the software update.In order to prevent data loss, do not disconnect the i Pod's docking cable from the i Pod during the upgrade process, according to Apple. Biersdorfer, author of "i Pod: The Missing Manual," the software update will download in the "Downloads" tab underneath the "Store" tab in the i Tunes' source list, and will automatically run once the download is complete.
The fastest way to find out if the version of i OS on your i Pod touch is the most recent version, choose Settings→General→Software Update.
