Guys, check the serial number of the replacement iPod nano you're getting! I did that on my replacement and it says this!


iPod nano (6th generation)

Repairs and Service Coverage: Active
Your product is covered for eligible hardware repairs and service under Apple's Limited Warranty.
Estimated Expiration Date: December 16, 2012

Awesome!!! :D

No idea on the size of the nano (guessing 8GB), but pretty cool either way, and with a year's warranty? Double win!

I better get a first generation Nano. I sent a first generation Nano in, and that's what I want back.

I just got the e-mail for my replacement -- says 6th generation also. Still has the 90 day period listed.

Shame I sold my 1st gen a few years ago really... :(

Then again, the 6th gen Nano is quite crap anyway. The 5th gen was the best ever Nano IMO.

Hopefully they're doing this in the UK too. I'm also hoping it'll speed the replacement process up a bit. I sent my iPod off on the 12th December and it still isn't received (unsurprisingly) so I'm expecting quite a long wait at the moment.

If you think about it, this makes sense anyway, and I assume they'll be doing it everywhere. What's cheaper for Apple, starting a limited production of old iPods or sending people the currently mass-produced new iPods?

Some people already got back 1st generation Nano's. They've had my iPod for over a month, I figured they were getting machines tooled up. Why couldn't they see that I have a recalled iPod and ship on the crappy 6 gen Nano the next day.

Until someone actually gets a 6G, I still think we'll get 1st gens back. Also, why would a 6G only come with a 90 day warranty instead of a 12 month one?

probably because they're refurbs 6th gen nanos and also apart of this 1st gen replacement program??

Mine says it has warranty till December 16, 2012. I've no doubt I'll get a 6th gen at this point.

1 year limited warranty applies to refurbs too and the 1 year limited warranty was still in effect with the 1st gen.

Anyone whining over getting a 2010 iPod over a 2005 iPod is just being childish. The first gen you probably have now likely doesn't even get used anymore and it definitely doesn't hold nearly the charge its supposed to (unless replaced).

some deem them as collectables and their first iPod (as mine was). I had mine in my car and held a charge for a good hour or so without being hooked up to my car. mine wouldn't sync about a week before receiving an email from apple about the recall which is why I sent it in.

I'm not being childish at all. I love the design of the first generation Nano. If I would have know this would happen I would NOT have sent mine in.

not complaining but i wish we would of had the option. idk if this is a good gesture on apple's part but I liked the model i bought which is why i still have it after 6yrs. id prefer the click wheel over the touch screen. who knows, if I do get the 6th gen, maybe it will grow on me? just saying.

The people that got the emails should be getting them tomorrow or Tuesday. That's my guess anyways. That's when we'll know. I'm still hoping that it'll be a first generation, I've got to believe that because why would they have me waiting one month AFTER I sent my iPod in unless they were making a set of first generations.

I sent mine in 3 days after the announcement of the recall, so pretty early. Anyhow I received an email saying my replacement is being sent to me and in that email the replacement has a new serial number. So I called apple to verify the serial number and sure enough it's a 6th gen nano. I'm satasfied with that replacement, thanks Apple!

If you iPod was just broken, then Apple wouldn't have to do anything, since the iPod has been out of warranty for many years. Since there is a danger of overheating, Apple has to do something to get the iPod out of your hands. You can always refuse their offer, have a six your old iPod with horrible battery life, and a slight risk of overheating. Your choice.

Of course my choice which is why I sent it in. hoping a new battery would help me sync my iPod again. It was in my car 99% of the time so I didn't really care for battery life. Just saying I wish we had a choice of what we're receiving. No where on the email would it say you'll be getting a 6th gen nano. All it said was replace the battery which is the reason for the recall anyways.

I applied on Nov 12th and finally got my box last week. Apple received my Nano on the 15th and now it shows "replacement pending". If they replace it with a 6th gen, I would be thrilled! I will take whatever they give me! :D

I just checked my s/n and it says I'm getting a 6th Gen Nano (it's coming today according to FedEx) and the service and repair warranty is expired. I find it weird that they'd ship a new or even refurb product with no warranty at all.

Mine is scheduled for tomorrow and it looks like I'm getting a 6th too. A little ambivalent since I bought mine on launch day and got a commemorative Nano bag and still have my box all original.

I talked on the phone to someone from Apple and according to the gentleman he said either black or gray. It would be in bad taste to send any other color to someone because other colors aren't "neutral"

It was confirmed buy a Apple call center staff that they are shipping out 6th generations and not 1st generations, The guy said that Apple had only expected about 80,000/90,000 to use the programme but actually a quarter of a million participated. Im sorry to say guy's I think these are only going to come in silver, I dont think it would be good to ship out feminine or masculine colours to opposite sex, But at the end of the day I would not be mithred at all if I got a colour I dont like, Its a top of the range iPod.

And all those people whining over not getting there first generation back, just ****, If you really, really want a first generation back im prett sure anyone with a brain would swap a 1st generation nano for a 6th generation nano.

I got the 6th gen today. It is not compatible with my Sonic Impact i-F2 speakers (which apparently did not use a universal docking design). Not thrilled at the prospect of having to spend money to be able to listen to my new nano via speakers. Can I buy an adapter for this purpose, or do I actually have to invest in new speakers?

Did you receive yours today? I got "On FedEx vehicle for delivery", but with "Scheduled for delivery next business day", which it displayed all day. I think Fedex's motto is "adding insult to injury". :) It was shipped yesterday, from Reno (I live in Reno), and they said it will take 5 days to arrive. Then they loaded it on a truck on a Saturday, and drove it around all day without intending to deliver it.

Oh well, I don't particularly need it right away, I'm just an obsessive tracker.

Probably, your timing was perfect. My unit first showed it was eligible for Applecare. I did not buy it on the spot and later it was not eligible.

This is a not to others. If you want applecare, buy it the moment you get the email.

Is apple still accepting nanos for the replacement program? I have a 1st gen, barely used at all, probably not more than 24hrs total use on it. I was debating on whether to send it in or not, and waiting to see what model they sent as a replacement for other people. Seeing that it's the 6th gen, I'm thinking I don't have much to loose by sending it in, and actually I'd be gaining 6GB since my 1st gen nano is only 2gb.

Sooo... are they still accepting nanos? Does anyone know when the program is scheduled to end?

Received my replacement yesterday evening around 6 PM, synced it, etc.

Dropped it at 6 AM this morning on tile floor in kitchen and cracked screen.

Karma, I guess. My first gen that was sent in was in mint (physical) condition.

I don't think it'll end anytime soon. Honestly though, just keep your first generation if it is in that good of shape.

Is apple still accepting nanos for the replacement program? I have a 1st gen, barely used at all, probably not more than 24hrs total use on it. I was debating on whether to send it in or not, and waiting to see what model they sent as a replacement for other people. Seeing that it's the 6th gen, I'm thinking I don't have much to loose by sending it in, and actually I'd be gaining 6GB since my 1st gen nano is only 2gb.

Sooo... are they still accepting nanos? Does anyone know when the program is scheduled to end?

They are still accepting Nano's. I requested my replacement on the 24th and they shipped the envelope to me on Monday and I got it yesterday and promptly sent it back. Which surprised me considering a lot of people reporting how long it has taken them to even get the envelope. Hopefully with Apple deciding to send out 6G's, the process will speed up a bit now.

Though it is also surprising they sent it via FedEx Ground. Guess for replacement programs, they cheap out on us where for my AppleCare repair cases, turn around is usually 3-4 days( as it was for my 4G iPod. Requested box, arrived next day, immediately shipped it out, got new iPod back in 2 days and my 12" Powerbook HD replacement took about 5 days).

Just a confirmation -- I shipped in my 2gb black iPod Nano (1st Gen) and just received an 8gb 6th Gen iPod Nano (Silver).

Overall I'm very pleased, I was in the market for one of these anyways.

Same here - while I was annoyed with the month-long wait to receive the shipping label, getting a new Nano in return was well-worth it.

1 year limited warranty applies to refurbs too and the 1 year limited warranty was still in effect with the 1st gen.

Anyone whining over getting a 2010 iPod over a 2005 iPod is just being childish. The first gen you probably have now likely doesn't even get used anymore and it definitely doesn't hold nearly the charge its supposed to (unless replaced).

well, that's BS. Maybe I'm the minority, but I used my 1st gen nano nearly every day and the charge was good for 6 hours continuous playback, which was sufficient. I would very much like to get a repaired 1st gen back instead of a 6th.

Just found my 1st gen iPod. I was just going to dispose of it properly when I heard about the fires, but getting a 6G iPod nano is great. Even if you don't like the new nano you are going from a 1-2gb iPod to an 8. I just hope the waiting period is much shorter now that Xmas shopping is over.

Actually was in a bit of a mood when I posted that.

To be honest I think they should of allowed you to choose the 6G or your 1G back. Then again I don't think they legally could because of battery safety issues.

unfortunately it probably will still be a long wait.

on another note, i have about 20 nanos that I am sending in but am having second thoughts about it now.

Apple is not going to reissue these 1st gen nanos and will probably destroy all of them. I think this may drive the price of them up as they become rarer and rarer 5-10 years down the road.

So I just missed the Fed Ex delivery of my replacement Nano today, because Apple required a signature they didn't leave it at my door. They will try to deliver it again until next Tuesday, then again Wednesday. If I'm not home to sign for it then it will go back to their facility 45 minutes away from me and not at my local Fed Ex facility (which makes no sense). If I then don't pick it up there it will go to another facility 2 hours away before being sent back to Apple.

I'm very frustrated about all this because in the email Apple sent me with the shipping details, they never mentioned what carrier was being used and the tracking number link did not work. So I had no idea when to expect it to make arrangements to be home.

I called Fed Ex to see if they would have the driver come back to my house, but they said they could not do that. And why they won't deliver on Monday is unknown. And better yet why it wouldn't be delivered to my local Fed Ex facility at the end of the day is just stupid.

I also called Apple and they won't can't do anything about all this, except when it comes back to them to have it delivered to a new address if I wanted.

So basically I waited months for my Nano replacement and now I may not get it at all. I'm really wishing I never sent them my old Nano in the first place!

I had a similar situation with FedEx. The package was to be delivered after I left for a long holiday trip. However, in my case, the FedEx tracking system worked perfectly and their website allowed me to specify a local FedEx/Kinko location where the package would be delivered and held. I emailed a copy of my driver's license to a friend and she was able to pick up the package for me.

Same thing happened to me. They dont deliver monday because Fedex Home is closed on Monday's but delivers Saturday's.

I had them transfer it to a facility near me where it was held for my pick up.

This is 100% Apple's fault not Fedex. I can buy a new computer and it will be left at my door, but a stupid Nano requires a signature?

I submitted my request back on Nov 14th and I finally just got my replacement nano. It took them over a month to get the return envelope to me. I'm assuming that they originally planned to get it out to me within 2 days but due to the response, they probably ran out of boxes and they probably also had to reevaluate sending back refurb 1st gen nanos. Either way, way to go Apple for sending me a 6gen nano.

I am wondering though if anybody can confirm if these are brand new 6gen nanos or if they're refurb 6gen nanos?

I think they should be able to leave it at my doorstep if I sign the door tag.I just looked over my door tag again and apparently I can't just sign it and leave it outside my door. The signature block was not checked by Fed Ex. What was checked is "Shipper requires signature in person at this address upon deliver".

So now I am going to have to call in sick from work so I'm here between 8am to 5pm. Or there is no way I will be able to get my Nano, unless at the end of the day I drive 45 minutes to their facility and then 45 minutes back.

Same thing with me here too. I'm in Canada, and the Apple address on the box is literally a half hour drive away from where I live.

I dropped my nano off on the 3rd, and plugging the tracking number into the UPS website shows that the box was delivered to Apple on the 4th. However, the repair status still says "December 24, 2011: Empty box shipped."

Same question: Should I (we?) be concerned, or should I (/we) just wait and see?

OF course they don't put the contents of your old iPod on to the new one. Apple doesn't do that -- it is YOUR responsibility prior to sending the thing in to have backed up your old iPod (which should be easy enough if everything is in your iTunes library) so that then when you get the new, fresh, blank iPod you simply connect it to your computer and iTunes and synchronize everything.

I wasn't a huge fan of the new generation at first and didn't want to spend any money on one (I just wanted it to wear as a watch) but now that I got one for free, I'm totally in love with it! I never even used my old Nano, I'm really happy that they ran out of NOS 1st gen models!!

Just back from the Apple store, my replacement 6th generation died after 2 weeks. They replaced it there, but tried to claim initially I was out of warranty as I purchased it in 2006 (when I got the original 1st gen Nano!). I explained I wasn't a time traveller and they eventually accepted.

This (new) new one is clearly a refurb - it's even got glue residue around the screen from where it seems to have been repaired.

What a funny question. How would your music be gone if it's backed up in iTunes on your computer?

Offtopic, but who would seriously want to use iTunes? I'm using Floola instead of bloated iTunes crap.

As cool as my first gen nano was I'm super stoked to think I might get a 6th gen as a replacement! Especially since my 1G was only one gig!

Sweet! A couple days ahead of mine! I know there doesn't seem to be too much rhyme or reason as to who's gets replaced when, but let's hope I see something tomorrow or at least early next week! Yayz! :D

Yeehaw!!! I just got my notification from Apple that mine has been shipped today..... I'd begun to wonder if something had gone wrong in the system, so this is good news. Now I can start thinking about what kind of watchband I want....

My replacement for the first-gen iPod Nano arrived today....it's cute but frankly, I am glad that I didn't ever buy one! I'm happy enough with it as a substitute for the first-gen Nano which was only 4 GB and which had been living in a drawer for some time now, but....really, while it's cute and while it has a little more capacity than my previous one, I don't think it's all that satisfactory overall. I'll primarily be using it as a "watch," anyway, so I probably shouldn't be fussing about it..... For listening to music I have my old 5G iPod that I can use in the car and at home I often just listen to music right from iTunes while the computer is on. I am not someone who goes walking around with the iPod connected to me and listening to music whereverI am, so it's all kind of moot. I was just kind of surprised, though, at this device being somewhat less than I was expecting....
