Apple has officially removed its first-generation iPod nano battery replacement program from its website after being available for nearly five years.
Several Apple Authorized Service Providers have confirmed that the program has ended, and that you should contact Apple for more information. Likewise, Apple themselves have also confirmed it has ended.
However, if you’re still looking to replace the battery for your twelve-year-old iPod nano, certain Senior AppleCare advisors are honoring the replacement program, if you’re lucky.
The program originally launched in November 2011, after Apple determined that, in very rare cases, that certain first-generation iPod nano’s were susceptible to overheating which would pose as a safety risk. It effected devices manufactured between September 2005 and December 2006.
