The iPod Nano is officially a “vintage” Apple product. Apple recently added the seventh-generation iPod Nano, which is the newest iPod Nano (last updated in 2015), to its Vintage and Obsolete Products list, which is a list of products that Apple hasn’t sold for more than five years.
Apple designated the seventh-generation iPod Nano as a “vintage” product for more than sentimental reasons. It means that for the next two years the seventh-generation iPod Nano will still be eligible for repairs and service at Apple’s Genius Bars or by other Apple Authorized Service Providers. However, after that two-year window, the iPod Nano will switch from “vintage” to “obsolete” and Apple will no longer will be on the hook for repairs.
Basically, if you have a seventh-generation iPod Nano and you love it, you have a two-year window to get it fixed by Apple if it breaks down.
The seventh-generation iPod Nano joins all other iPod Nano models on Apple’s list of Vintage and Obsolete Products. The first-generation model was introduced in 2005 and it was notable because it was the smallest iPod with a screen. It had a click wheel and a vertical design similar to the original iPod. Over the next 12 years, Apple redesigned the iPod Nano a number of times and adding more iPhone-esque features, including a color display, a Home button and even a video camera.
Today, the only iPod model that Apple sells is the iPod Touch, which was last updated in 2019. It starts at $199.
