Some counterfeit and third party power adapters and batteries may not be designed properly and could result in safety issues.To ensure you receive a genuine Apple battery during a battery replacement, we recommend visiting an Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider.This was a particularly difficult decision, as play counts are extremely important to me but non-Apple devices don't sync media play counts with i Tunes.(More on this in a bit.) But I switched anyway, and I bought a 4th-generation i Pod shuffle as a replacement for the Music app on my i Phone as well as a cool little fashion accessory in my favorite color.
To fix this, you can synchronize a selection of playlists BUT...2) Create as many Smart Playlists (for i Pod music) as you like, all starting with: "Playlist is 'i Pod Music'", so that the queries will only affect the music on your i Pod.3) Synchronize the "i Pod Music" playlist and all Smart Playlists based on i Pod music.If you need a replacement adapter to charge your Apple device, we recommend getting an Apple power adapter."i Phone does not sync play counts and ratings back to i Tunes while I use a third-party tool to transfer music from i Phone to i Tunes.
