Apple plans to mark the seventh-generation iPod nano as “erstrum” later this month, citingmedia MacRumors. Out-of-the-world products are those that have been discontinued for more than 5 years and less than 7 years. Apple launched its seventh-generation iPod nano in 2015, the last in the series. The device is now about 5 years old and will therefore be listed as “erststevered products”.
Apple introduced the first iPod nano in September 2005 and has underned several redesigns in subsequent changes. The original iPod nano looks similar to the standard iPod, but is slimmer and easier to fill in your pocket.
The second-generation iPod nano has shrunk in size and introduced bright aluminum colors, but it offers a similar design to the first-generation iPod nano model.
The third-generation iPod nano, known as “nano fatty” for its generous design, is Apple’s first major design iteration of the nano product line.
On the fourth-generation iPod nano, Apple once again downsized, abandoning the wide design of the third-generation model and then launching the fifth-generation with a similar design.
The sixth-generation iPod nano, launched in 2010, ushered in a major design change, with Apple removing the iconic click wheel and adopting a full-screen design that looks like the current Apple Watch.
The seventh-generation iPod nano, the last model to be launched, came out in October 2012 with an iPod touch-style multi-touch display and Home key, and eventually the nano and touch product line were very similar, so Apple canceled the iPod nano.
In 2015, Apple expanded its iPod nano product line to add new color schemes, but did not re-adjust the design. The iPod nano was discontinued in mid-2017 with the iPod shuffle, making the iPod touch the only iPod sold by Apple.
