  1. Maybe I am just getting more stupid, but all my searches have not given me the answer!
    Is the Hard drive a solid state drive? I know my first ipod was a spinning disc drive of some sort, !??

    Only the ipod classic uses a spinning hard drive, and that's been the case for the last 5 years at least. AFAIK no phone has ever had a mechanical hard drive in it (because it would be too bulky).
