iPod nano was first launched in September 2005 and sold from that time onwards to December 2006. 5 years later, Apple has introduced a replacement program for iPod nano sold during that time as the batteries in these devices may overheat and pose a safety risk ( in rare cases ). To avoid any such issue, the program will get you a replacement unit without any battery defect.
The process works in the following manner: you would have to visit this link, chose your country and enter your iPod nano serial number to verify if you’re illegible for this program. Once verified, you will receive a replacement unit ( 1st generation ) in approximately 6 weeks.
We at iThinkDifferent know quiet a few people who still use their first generation iPod nano because it’s just so slim and darn beautiful. So hopefully, this replacement program will keep them safe from any sort of safety incident.
