Difference between ipod touch mc and mb

Mc and MB generations

I'm was pretty new to ipod touch 2nd and 3rd gen, so i didn't knew what is mb or mc. After some research I found out very simple information: MC is 3rd gen, and MB is 2nd generation ipod touch.

How to check your ipod touch model

Go to Settings - General - About
You will see your model.
If it is mb, that means you have 2nd gen ipod touch, else if it is mc then it is 3rd.


If you wonder what difference between 2nd and 3rd gen - difference between mc and mb is:
-Faster CPU (should be roughly the same as the new 3GS processor) 
-OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics support 
-Apple inline remote support 
-VoiceOver (voice control) 
-Increase in capacity up to 64GB

Detailed information:

Main difference is price. 3rd gen will cost you a bit more then 2nd.

Current ipod touch prices

Mostly prices goes down, but in same cases they might get up because of various things. To check price you can use ebay or amazon - Check ipod touch current prices

Explaining video from youtube


  1. Where did you get the info for the ipod touch 2G? Are you sure it is correct?

  2. I'm not totally 100% sure, but i believe its correct

  3. its not correct cause i have an mc 8gb and it only has 64mb of ram not the said 256mb

  4. very true because there is bo way that the 3rd gen has equivalent ram to the 4th

  5. Your title is misleading

  6. my ipod touch is mc, and it has none of the tools you mentioned. mc is the crappy one, and mb is the good one.

  7. My iPod touch's model is mc as it is shown however its serial no. is of 2nd gen. It also doesn't support open GL ES 2.0. Plz help!!
