Long gone are the days when the iPod nano was all the rage. Apple’s Vintage and Obsolete list now places it firmly in the past. 

The last generation of the nano, generation seven, was added to the list on Thursday, in the Vintage category. Vintage products were sold between five to seven years ago and continue to receive hardware service from Apple. The earlier nano generations are Obsolete, which means that their sales were discontinued more than seven years ago and that Apple has discontinued hardware service, no exceptions. 

The nano debuted in September 2005 and underwent several design changes across its lifetime. Ultimately, it was tabled after a 12-year run because the nano and touch were too similar, MacRumors reports. Apple sells only the iPod touch portable music player now. 

If you still use your iPod nano 7, it might be time to see if it needs servicing. It won’t be supported by Apple much longer.
