Apple iPod Nano 7th Generation Review and Features

Apple announced the seventh and final generation iPod Nano on September 12, 2012. The (maximum) internal storage capacity has not increased compared to the previous model. Only a single, 16 GB version of the seventh-generation iPod Nano was announced at the product launch.

Apple described it as their “thinnest iPod ever.” It is 38% thinner (5.4 mm) than the Nano it replaces (8.78 mm) and adds the ability to use Bluetooth 4.0 wireless headsets, speakers and other devices (such as heart-rate monitors).

It still included the Nike+iPod fitness option and an FM radio tuner that works when connected to headphones or a stereo jack. On 15 July 2015, Apple refreshed the iPod Nano, offering only five more subdued colours (gold, silver, blue, pink and space grey) compared to the original seven jewel tones, in addition to the (Product) Red model.

On July 27, 2017, Apple discontinued the iPod Nano and the iPod shuffle, making the iPod touch the last model of the iPod line.

The 7th generation featured a 2.5-inch, touch-sensitive 432×240 display at 202 PPI, Bluetooth 4.0 (with support for NIKE+ iPod wireless systems), and a Lightning connector to replace the original 30-pin dock connector. Although its software resembles the iOS user interface, it is not an iOS device.

The current and final version of the iPod software for this device is 1.0.4 for the initial release model and 1.1.2 for the mid-2015 refresh model.
