    So I'm about to purchase a first generation iPod nano for $50, brand new with shrink wrap

    and it got me thinking, how awesome would it be for a refresh of the 1st generation, I love the design, and I think there's a couple ways to improve it via modern hardware
    • OLED display, the size of the nano's display is 1.5", same size as the 42mm Apple Watch, would be great for sunny days and showing off great album artwork
    • new color options, like Jet Black or a shiny gold (my favorite color haha)
    • Lightning to charge the device, making room for a bigger battery
    • new storage options, like a 512GB super fast storage
    • Bluetooth (am aware 7th has this) to connect new headphones
    • water resistance
    • Haptic Engine for feedback
    • interface designed around OLED display
    • internet connectivity to work with Apple Music
    • 3rd party music (music only) applications like Google Play Music and Spotify
    • HomeKit controller
    • Great speakers for stand alone listening (might not be possible with space constraints)
    those are all of the things I thought of, comment more if you'd like

    a picture of this baby is attached

    yes, I know there might already be better options that already exist or you don't agree that this should exist, but this is my opinion

    I had the first gen iPod nano back before I got the first iPhone. I loved it so much. I think it's still my favorite nano design and then the "Nano chromatic" generation. Once I got the first iPhone and then onward I've never had the need for a dedicated iPod. But the first gen nano is probably my all time favorite iPod design, if they resurrected any of the classic type iPods I would hope for it with modern updates.

    Never got a notification for this reply, ugh

    Anyway, yes I agree I have 2 iPhones, but I would love a new iPod nano, it's a sexy design and it would be fun to have
