iPod Nano has gone through different models, or generations since Apple first introduced it in September 2005. The first generation iPod Nano was once something we considered revolutionary thanks to its small size.  However, in 2011, Apple officially announced a recall on its first generation iPod Nano due to a battery overheat issue and offered a free replacement program to address concerns over overheating issues.

However, Apple recently ended its first generation iPod Nano replacement program. Cupertino-based Company has removed the landing page for the program from its support site and the announcement has been addressed to a few Apple Authorized Service Providers, suggesting that Apple officially ended the replacement program, over five years after it started. However, Apple still honors the program if you offer request. This means that you still can take advantage of the program if you find the right person to talk to.

For those unfamiliar, the first generation iPod Nano was introduced on September 7, 2005. The first iPod Nano offered up to 14 hours of battery life, while it included a 176×132 pixels screen and 1.2/4GB of internal storage. In 2012, Apple announced the 7th generation iPod Nano, the thinnest iPod Nano ever, with 38% thinner than its previous models. The latest generation iPod Nano included high-end techs including Bluetooth 4.0 wireless headsets, speakers, Nike+iPod fitness option and an FM radio tuner.

 2017 will be a big year for Apple when it celebrates ten years of iPhone. Apple is expected to launch a special iPhone this year to honor the occasion. The next iPhone has been rumored to come with an overhauled design, new features and specs including enhanced Touch ID, camera, iris scanner, OLED display and more. Besides, rumors say that Apple may launch three iPhone models this year including a premium model with curved OLED display.
