How to Set the Time and Date on Your iPod Classic

Your iPod may already be set to the correct time, date, and time zone, depending on where you bought it (except, of course, the iPod shuffle, which doesn’t offer these features). If not, you can set them yourself. To set the date and time on an iPod classic, follow these steps:

  1. Press the Menu button for the main menu.

  2. Choose Settings→Date & Time.

    The Date & Time menu appears, with selections for setting the date, time, time zone, and 24-hour clock. The Time in Title option appears to display the time in the menu title bar.

    Skip to Step 5 if the correct time zone is set.

  3. Choose Time Zone.

    After choosing Time Zone, a map appears with a red dot set to your current time zone on the map.

  4. Scroll to choose a time zone.

    Move the red dot to another zone by scrolling the click wheel — the red dot jumps from one region of the map to another, and the time zone appears below the map. Press the Select button to choose a zone. After selecting the time zone, the Date & Time menu appears again.

  5. Choose Date from the Date & Time menu.

    The Date display appears with the month field highlighted.

  6. Change the field setting by scrolling the click wheel.

    Scroll clockwise to go forward and counterclockwise to go backward.

  7. After scrolling to the appropriate setting, press the Select button.

    The next date field is now highlighted.

  8. Repeat Steps 6 and 7 for the day and year.

    After you finish scrolling and then selecting the Year field, the Date & Time menu appears automatically.

  9. Choose Time from the Date & Time menu.

    The Time display appears with the Hour field highlighted.

  10. Change the field setting by scrolling the click wheel.

    Scroll clockwise to go forward and counterclockwise to go backward.

  11. After scrolling to the appropriate setting, press the Select button.

    The next date field is now highlighted.

  12. Repeat Steps 10 and 11 for minutes and AM/PM.

    After finishing the AM/PM field, the Date & Time menu appears again.

To show military time (so that 11:00 p.m. is displayed as 23:00), choose the 24-Hour Clock option in the Date & Time menu and press the Select button to turn it on. The option changes from 12-hour to 24-hour. To switch back, press the Select button again.

To display the time on the menu title bar of an iPod classic, scroll to the Time in Title option in the Date & Time menu, and then press the Select button to turn this option on. To stop showing the time on the menu title bar, press the Select button again to toggle it to Off.
