Users of the 1st generation of the iPod Nano may want to pay heed to this one. In a revelation made by the company, it is now known that albeit, rare but batteries of the iPod Nano that were sold betweem September 2005 and December 2006 are said to pose a safety risk, since a manufacturing defect in them caused the batteries to overheat.
To be replaced…
Apple also states that with passing time, batteries tend to get more prone to glitches, and hence a replacement is logical. Acknowledging all these, Apple has got down to its 'iPod Nano (1st generation) Replacement Program. As the name suggests, Apple has decided to go out and has asked all the users of the iPod Nano (1st generation) (only these, and not the other iPod Nano users) to stop using their iPod Nanos and approach the Cupertino-based company to receive their replacement unit, at no charges.
Those who stand eligible to get a replacement, will have to place an order by clicking here. Apple will then check the serial number of the iPod Nano to check for eligibility. A replacement unit will then reach the user in about 6 weeks after Apple receives the 'to-be-replaced' iPod Nano unit.
