Question How to tell what generation iPod touch I have

I bought a 64 GB iPod touch 'refurbished' off of eBay. How do I find out what generation iPod touch I have? It won't upgrade to iOS 6. TIA.

The 3rd gen Touch will not upgrade to IOS 6 so you have a 3rd gen or earlier.

I don't believe any Touch before the 3rd gen was sold with 64gb which would make it a 3rd gen Touch.

I'm sure there is a way you can look up the serial and it'll tell you once you look it up

The model number is engraved on the back. If it is a 64gb, it would have to be 3rd gen or newer. A 4th gen would update to iOS6. A 3rd gen would not. Does it have a front facing camera?

no volume buttons = 1st gen
model number starting with A12 = 2 Gen

the relevant part
starting with A13 = 3 gen
Camera and 3.5 inch screen = 4th gen
4 inch screen (or a back any color besides chrome silver) = 5th gen

OR
if it runs 4.3 or above its a 3rd gen.
