You have either made your iPod nano 1st generation last a long time or it’s sitting in a junk drawer collecting dust. Either way, you are in a good position.
You might ask, how does having a broken iPod nano a good thing? It is not worth the time or money to repair.
Some time ago, the giant Californian fruit company (Apple) issued a recall on this device because the battery could catch fire. Most people would pass on this because the new devices are much better and the old ones are obsolete (to some – not others). Keep reading…
Apple ran out of first generation iPod nano’s and decided not to fire up the production line and build replacement 1st gens. Apple decided that issuing a 6th gen nano as a replacement would fulfill obligations to their customers. Yes – you read that right! You can send in your 1st gen Nano for a newer device (6th as far as I know). I don’t know how long this will continue on for – but perhaps if apple runs out of 6th gens they will issue the 7th (but I don’t want to be starting apple rumors….yet).
I have personally returned two iPod nano 1st generation units for two 6th gens. Both were used as a goodwill gesture towards family members (Aka – gifts).
