New iPod Touch and 3.0
 
I just bought my son an iPod touch 16gig, etc. bought it yesterday and it does not have the 3.0 software. It gives me the option to upgrade to 3.0 for $9.95 but shouldn't an iPod touch this new already have the 3.0 installed?

It should. Where did you buy it from? If it was not the Apple store it might be old stock from before 3.0.

It actually came from the Scottsdale AZ Apple Store Manager yesterday.

Call them up and tell them.

I would take it back and ask for an exchange for one with 3.0 on it, or ask them to perform the upgrade for free, or discount the sale that $10.

I'm of course assuming that you didn't get a discount.

Thanks everyone, I just wasnt sure if it was supposed to have 3.0 or not so I will drop by the store and get them to fix it.:D

OS limbo
 
I just bought my daughter an iPod Touch from the Apple store and it does not come with v.3.0 of the software, instead wants $9.99 to upgrade. Is Apple selling stuff now with out of date OS? How did it go at the Scottsdale Apple store when you took it back?

To be honest I think this is the norm (certainly in the UK).

If you look on the Apple store it doesn't say that it comes with 3.0

It says 3.0 is 'available' for the iPod touch but the spec never mentions it. It doesn't mention Bluetooth either. Something that was only enabled for iPod Touches with 3.0

I don't think you'll see iPod touches coming with 3.0 out-of-the-box until a 3rd gen touch is released.
I'm reasonably sure this is what happened when 2.0 came out. No iPods came with 2.0 until the 2nd gen iPod Touch was released.

All new iPods should ship with the latest firmware. Well at least that's what we were always told.

I think that 'should' be the case but I can't find anything to substantiate it on the Apple site.

Be interested to see what the store says when the OP takes it back.

Certainly the one I got from them on Monday didn't have 3.0 installed.

I got my Touch on August 3 from the online store. It did NOT have 3.0, but it worked great...Wifi, etc.

Bought the 3.0 update....now, weak WiFi, if at all...some apps stopped working...all for $9.95.

I'd like to get a refund and restore the Touch to out of the box status.:Sleeping:

Apple - iPod touch - Software Update

Both on this page and on the Apple Store page it says Upgrade to 3.0 for $9.95.

Personally I don't think it's fair that a brand new touch does not come with the latest OS but that appears to be the way things are.
