1st-gen iPod nano

Apple has issued a statement recalling some 1st-generation iPod Nanos.

Owners of the affected devices are advised to stop using them and submit a claim for a free replacement.

Affected devices were sold between September 2005 and December 2006.

The issue, which is blamed on a specific batch of faulty batteries, could cause the battery to overheat.

You can submit an online claim for using your iPod's serial number on Apple's Support website (opens in new tab).
