iPod nano (1st generation) Replacement Program

Found 10th Sep 2014
If anyone has an Apple 1st Generation IPOD Nano, you can get it replaced for FREE with Apple to the latest generation IPOD Nano.

I did this a couple of months ago, with one I had lying around at home.

To check if you eligible click on the link and follow instructions.

Apple has determined that, in very rare cases, the battery in the iPod nano (1st generation) may overheat and pose a safety risk. Affected iPod nanos were sold between September 2005 and December 2006.

This issue has been traced to a single battery supplier that produced batteries with a manufacturing defect. While the possibility of an incident is rare, the likelihood increases as the battery ages.

Apple recommends that you stop using your iPod nano (1st gen) and follow the process noted below to order a replacement unit, free of charge.

Note: This battery issue is specific to the iPod nano (1st gen) and does not affect any other iPod.

Replacement Process
You may order a replacement unit via the web.

Your iPod nano serial number will be checked to verify that it is eligible for this program. You will receive a replacement unit approximately 6 weeks after we receive your current iPod nano (1st gen).

If you have a personalized iPod nano, you will receive a non-personalized replacement. Make sure to use iTunes to back up any data on your current iPod nano before sending it in for a replacement unit.

Additional Information
Identifying an iPod nano (1st gen):

It has a black or white plastic front and a silver metal back - later iPod nano models have a metal front and back. See images on this web page.
If you need assistance with placing an order, please visit an Apple Retail Store and bring your iPod nano with you for serial number validation.

Your replacement iPod is under warranty for 90 days from the date of service.

This is so old!!! Been around years O.O

Where's the link?

I've had 8 off them, they are now sending 7th generation models out.

I've found this useful, as I had completely forgot about the replacement program.

But then again it's taken long enough to find the nano! And how small is that serial number on the back of the nano!

Cheers op.

Great thanks as it happens had my old ipod sat on my desk. Entered the serial number and went through fine.

You mug!
Its this program from Apple that has made the 1st gen Ipod Nano very sought after as not many of them left in public hands..
Expect them to change hands for thousands in 20 years time!

Just done this thanks!

Mines buggered.. battery last for about 10 minutes so something new would be nice!
