Stop ipod from updating
On another note, if Apple doesn't send out an update to bring the dynamic ability of SPLs back to older i Pods, then this is the first and last Apple product I will ever own. Hello, I had a Ipod 4G with the issue, now I have the Ipod 5G video and for 2 weeks no issues, my smart playlist are working well which is relief, because recreating them every so was a pain. People, giving up all Apple products just because a smart playlist isn't working is overreacting. I play this list and once done, all new music is played and is supposed to disappear.Regards, Benoit Great, so the solution to this issue is to hand over Apple an additional 0 for the newest i Pod. Jobs, take away functionality from older products when newer ones are coming out and force them to upgrade! Hello, Well my 2 weeks joy ended this morning, I plugged my ipod 5G video to my computer, and smartplaylist were no longer, they were simple playlist :((((( grrrrrrr It's a real pain since there is no way that I know off to backup playlist, so I have to re create them 1 by 1, because using 2 pcs I can't synch. On my 5G i Pod, the playlist doesn't update if I get out of it and go back in. I thought maybe some of the many conditions I stipulated were causing problems (Kind does not contain video, Podcast is False, etc.), so I cut them out, but it still does not update.Unfortunately my wife and my daughter share some of those songs and each time they listen to one and sync with i Tunes it changes the “last played” date; which means there are some songs that will never get pulled onto my playlist.Unfortunately, there is no way to disable the updating of tracking metadata such as Last Played, Last Skipped, Play Count, Skip Count and rating when automatically syncing your music with an i Pod or i OS device.
We reserve the right to edit questions for grammar, spelling, and length. Hi, I’m wondering if there is any way to sync an i Pod/i Phone to an i Tunes library without syncing the metadata, specifically the “last played” info.
During that time, updated apps that rely on i Cloud Drive for syncing may not also be able to sync using the i OS 7 approach that works with 10.9 Mavericks.
David Chartier warned about this on Twitter, and although it remains to be seen how many apps are affected, it’s best to play it safe.
This method requires you to delete the i OS update from settings and then disable the Wi-Fi connection and mobile data to stay disconnected from the network.
Because as soon as you connect to the network the i OS update will be downloaded automatically. Method 2: Install the update Just accepting and installing the software update is another simple method to get rid of the continuous software update pop-up.
