How to Download Audiobooks to iPod Shuffle in English
If you love listening to audiobooks on the go, you might want to use your iPod shuffle as a portable device. The iPod shuffle is ideal for running or exercising, as it is small, lightweight and easy to clip on. You don't need to worry about network connections or app updates, and the battery lasts up to 15 hours. However, you might wonder how to download audiobooks to your iPod shuffle in English, since it does not have a screen or a menu. Here are some simple steps to follow:
Download iTunes on your computer if you don't have it already. You can get it for free from Apple's website. iTunes is the software that allows you to manage your iPod shuffle and transfer music and audiobooks to it.
Connect your iPod shuffle to your computer using the USB cable that came with it. Plug one end into your computer's USB port and the other end into your iPod shuffle's headphone/charging port. If your iTunes has auto-sync for music enabled, simply opening iTunes and plugging in your iPod will add any new music you've downloaded to your iPod. If not, you will need to manually sync your music later.
Click on your iPod shuffle's icon in the upper-left corner of iTunes. This will open the summary page for your device, where you can see its name, capacity, battery status and sync options.
Select the \"Audiobooks\" tab from the menu on the left. This will show you all the audiobooks that are available on your iTunes library. You can also browse and buy audiobooks from the iTunes Store by clicking on the \"Store\" button at the top of the screen.
Check the box next to \"Sync Audiobooks\" if it is not already checked. This will enable you to transfer audiobooks from your iTunes library to your iPod shuffle. You can choose to sync all audiobooks or selected ones by clicking on the corresponding option.
Drag and drop the audiobooks that you want to download to your iPod shuffle from the list on the right to the \"iPod shuffle\" icon on the left. You can also select multiple audiobooks by holding down the Ctrl key (Windows) or Command key (Mac) while clicking on them.
Click on the \"Apply\" button at the bottom-right corner of iTunes. This will start syncing your audiobooks to your iPod shuffle. You can see the progress of the sync on the top of iTunes. Do not disconnect your iPod shuffle until the sync is complete.
Eject your iPod shuffle from iTunes by clicking on the eject button next to its icon. You can now unplug it from your computer and enjoy listening to your audiobooks.
Note: To listen to audiobooks on your iPod shuffle, you need to switch it to play mode by sliding the switch on top of it to either left or right. The left position will play your audiobooks in order, while the right position will play them randomly. To switch back to music mode, slide the switch to the middle position. aa16f39245
