Apple issues warning about overheating batteries in first gen iPod Nano, will replace it for free


Say what you want about Apple, but the company definitely puts customer satisfaction ahead of everything else. The firm from Cupertino has just warned that some of its first generation iPod Nanos from way back in 2005 may overheat and pose a safety risk and has pledged to replace the offending units for free. The affected models are easy to spot says Apple in this statement in its website, saying that the affected Nanos have a “black or white plastic front and a silver metal back”. The only issue here is that it’ll take up to six weeks to replace the problematic device, but then again, there’s very few companies that would offer to replace 6 year old electronic devices for free.
