iPod nano is legally obsolete

Apple has updated its list of obsolete and retired products. And there is a replenishment in it.

This list includes “vintage” products that have not been updated for more than five or less than seven years, as well as outdated ones that have passed the seven-year mark. iPod nano is officially “vintage”.

The status of a vintage product means that an official authorized service center can fix the player, but this will only be done if the necessary parts are available. Outdated devices are generally not repaired or accepted for service.

Recall that the last model of the seventh-generation iPod nano was introduced in mid-2015. It had an iPod touch-style multi-touch display and a Home button. The nano and touch product lines were so similar that Apple dropped the iPod nano. Its production was discontinued in 2017.

In addition to the seventh-generation iPod nano, the 5th generation iPod touch, which was originally released on October 11, 2012, has also been added to the list of vintage and obsolete products.
