how do I tell which generation my nano is?

Just got a new nano.

The lightning plug is not compatible with my Bose Sound Dock. To buy an adapter one needs to know the iPod generation. Can't find that anywhere in the little bit of documentation that came with it.

  • One does not need to know that, since the 7th generation is the only one with the Lightning jack. It should say very clearly that you have the 7th generation iPod nano.
