* Apple approximated the track capacity of the first and second generation iPod using the 160-Kbps MP3 format. These files are larger than the 128-Kbps AAC style used to estimate the volume of subsequent iPod models.

† Interestingly, Apple did not administer "official" estimates for tune capacity, photo capacity and video clip capacity for these models. However, as as whole capacities of these models room unchanged from previously models, these approximates still are worthwhile to obtain a basic idea of storage capacity.
