The seventh generation iPod nano (which we see here disassembled by iFixit back in 2012) is close to officially entering the product club "Vintage and Obsolete"from Apple. Starting from September 30, in fact, it will be included in the list of" Vintage "devices that have not been in the list for more than five and less than seven years. The fifth generation iPod Touch will also enter this list .
Once he has passed the seven-year limit he will enter the list of so-called "Obsolete". The iPod nano, meanwhile, will still receive hardware support based on the availability of repair parts.
Apple launched its first iPod nano in September 2005: the device has undergone several redesigns over time: The first iPod nano model was similar in design to a standard iPod but with a slimmer shape
With the second generation it got smaller and was enriched with new color variations becoming stockier and wider in the next generation. In its fourth generation it got smaller again while keeping this design in its fifth generation as well.
In 2010, Apple ditched the iconic Click Wheel in favor of a full-screen design that made it look like a current Apple Watch. The seventh generation, the final model, came out in October 2012 and had an iPod touch-like multi-touch display and a Home button. In 2015, new colors were added. And recently some images have been released online showing a Mac Mini with integrated docking station to house an iPod nano. Would you have liked such a solution?
