Useful New iTunes Feature: iPod Capacity

iTunes 10 LogoI have just updated to iTunes 10. Apart from it looking like it came out of a black and white printer, I have noticed a useful feature I haven’t seen much written about.

When an iPod is connected and it shows the available capacity, this now reflects files which haven’t been synced with it yet, but will do on the next sync.

I’m finding this especially useful with podcasts, as after updating them, it will instantly show me if I have enough available space for them on my iPod, without having to attempt to sync them first.

Capacity on iPod before updating podcasts:

After downloading a new podcast, but before updating my iPod, the capacity is automatically updated:
