Apple’s aging devices, the first-gen iPod nanos were at risk for being lost in the dust. Some of the devices were found at safety risk of overheating. The Cupertino giant has commenced a replacement program to facilitate its customers with a perfect substitute.
Now the customers who have got their devices back from AppleCare have witnessed an upgrade to the sixth generation variant. A customer stated that “Just received our replacement today – Fedex truck pulled up late in the evening. Inside was our replacement for our 1st gen iPod nano that was sent into Apple 1 month ago. It’s a 6th generation iPod nano, serial number shows that warranty has expired. Not sure if that means that it’s a refurbished model or if it’s a brand new model and they’ve deactivated the warranty. It’s silver.”
May be Apple has run short of the old first generation units that are why it is offering current generation devices to fans.
For a quick recap, iPod nano is introduced in September 2005 in 2 GB and 4 GB capacities with a cost of $199/$249. The device is designed with 1.5-inch screen for displaying the standard iPod software interface and a click wheel for navigation.
The sixth generation iPod Nano, is smaller in size than the old iPod. It is developed with 1.5 inches touch screen. It is offered with 8 GB with a cost of $129 and 16 GB with a cost of $149.
