Replacement Devices For First-Gen iPod Nano Are Now Arriving


Last week Apple announced a replacement program for first-gen iPod nano. The program was initiated due to battery defects that could cause overheating of the devices. While Apple officially states that users may wait up to six week to receive the replacement devices, some customers are reporting that they have already received their replacements. And while some had expressed hopes that Apple may replace their devices with newer-generation iPod nanos given a possible shortage of devices that went out of production five years ago, customers still receives first-gen iPod nanos.

According to one user who received its replacement unit, the new device has the same color and capacity as its original iPod nano, although it is brand-new device without any wear and tear. Apple is likely using refurbished devices for replacements under it refurbishment program that involves the use of new outer shells and batteries to make the device function and look as brand-new.

The replacement iPod nanos have a 90-day warranty that allows users to make sure the devices are operating normally upon receipt. As judged by the units arriving already, the replacement devices should be identical to original units, although Apple states that replacements will not include any personalization of the original devices.
