    There is not an optical output on any of the iPods, iPhones, or iPads. Apple TV 2 & 3 have optical outputs for sure, but the 4th Generation Apple TV does not. I cannot speak to the 1st Generation Apple TV as I never owned one. So with the iPod, iPhone or iPad you are limited to either Bluetooth or 3.5mm.
