The seventh generation iPod Nano Vintage has been added to the list of obsolete products. The iPod Nano joins the iPod Classic, fifth generation iPod Touch and fourth generation iPod Shuffle as part of the company’s vintage product segment.
Simply put, vintage products have not been sold for more than 5 years. The seventh generation iPod Nano is still eligible for repairs from Apple and third-party service providers. But once a product reaches the seven-year mark, it is considered “obsolete.” This means the product is no longer fit for repair.
History of the iPod Nano
Apple first announced the iPod Nano in September 2005. The first-generation iPod Nano had a 1.5-inch color screen and a scroll wheel similar to the iPod Classic. Thanks to its small size and familiar interface, the Nano was an instant success.
A year later, Apple introduced the second generation iPod Nano. The new model comes in a colorful new anodized aluminum case. In 2007, Apple introduced the third generation iPod Nano in a new design language. The biggest feature of the third generation iPod Nano is that it can play videos on its 2-inch 320 × 240 display.
Between 2008 and 2009, Apple released two of the most successful iPod Nano models. Both had candy bar design and tall displays. Both the models are available in multiple color options. However, the 2009 iPod Nano also had a video camera.
But in 2010 the iPod Nano dropped the classic scroll wheel and even eliminated the ability to play videos. Instead, the rectangular iPod Nano got a touchscreen interface that mimics iOS, but it doesn’t run iOS. It became very popular and many people used this iPod Nano as a smart watch.
The seventh-generation iPod Nano was introduced in 2012 and features a candybar form factor and a 2.5-inch vertical oriented touchscreen display. It had a home button and a lightning port. The seven-generation iPod Nano was lightly updated in 2015 with the addition of three color options.
