    I will be buying a new iPod touch soon. Is Apple still shipping these with OS 2.2.1, or is OS 3.0 shipping on these? If it is still OS 2.2.1, will Apple wait until the iPod touch line is refreshed to ship them with 3.0?

    Just wondering if I'll have to pay an extra $10 or not. The product description page in the Apple online store is not clear, but it suggests that I would have to pay the $10.

    Thanks,

    It depends on where you buy it from. Not sure about Apple, you could call and ask.

    Not sure.

    If you're buying in-store i'd wait another week just to be sure.
    If you're buying from Apple.com, theyll definitely ship it to you w/ 3.0

    Glad To Help

    If its from apple yes it will definitely have 3.0

    also why are you buying one now when there is a possibility of a 3rd gen iPod touch coming out in september?

    I can tell you if you bought a 1st gen right now the highest would be 1.1.4 or 1.1.5 whatever was before 2.0.

    My friend bought one brand new and that's what it came with.

    So it's likely with the 2nd gens that they may just come with 2.2.1.

    apple would ship it with 3.0 = 100% sure.

    If they don't (from elsewhere), you can buy the upgrade for 9.95.

    Because the education promo is running now and I'll get the touch for free. Since the education promo is only running through Labor Day weekend, it is highly likely that the new touch won't come out until after that date.

    Also, I am traveling to NH next week, so that saves me the sales tax on all of this.

    I'm saving plenty enough through the promo and no sales tax that the $10 is not a big deal. It is not a big deal even without those savings, but I was curious as to what would be in the box.

    I am sure the next generation touch will add something that I really want, like GPS, and I'll be sad. But the new 13" MacBook Pro is so much better for my needs compared to the previous one and my iBook G4 is barely hanging on. I should have replaced that last year, but was trying to save some money.

    Thanks for everyone taking the time to reply.
