iPod nano 7th generation (2015) – Full information

The iPod nano 7th generation was revised in July, 2015. The Apple corporation offered the new set of colors and cut off the older Mac and Windows versions support. Keep in mind that Apple changed the identifiers of the model as well. The iPod nano 7th generation (2015) is not compatible with ac OS X 10.6, Windows XP, or Windows Vista. The colors available are space gray with black front, gold, silver, hot pink, blue and red with white fronts. In all the other aspects the player is similar to the older 7th gen model. The iPod nano 7th generation (2015) is taller and 38 % slimmer than the iPod nano 6th generation. The player has also lost its telltale nano line-up design and looks more like an iPod touch 1st gen. The only difference are the interface icons: they are round, not square with wraparound corners. The device also got an iPhone-like “home” button. The iPod nano 7th generation (2015) features a large 2.5-inches multi-touch screen (240×432, 202ppi) and runs the iOS-like interface. An integrated pedometer and FM radio with “live pause” feature as well as Nike+iPod, VoiceOver, and “Shake to Shuffle” functions remained. The iPod nano 7th generation (2015) hasn’t got a microphone, a speaker, or a camera but its wireless communication embraces Bluetooth 4.0. Thus, the player is compatible with wireless headphones, car stereos and external speakers. The fully charged iPod nano 7th gen supports 30 hours of music playback and 3.5 hours of video playback.

  • Well into the second decade of the 21st century and the iPod 7th gen nano doesn’t have wi-fi! What’s more, it can’t support music streams, only one you downloaded via USB from your PC.
  • Unlike the 6th gen iPod nano, this one is not compatible with other music stores and services, and strictly depends on iTunes only. With every other large screen smartphone capable of streaming music, playing videos to say nothing of integrated fitness trackers and other paraphernalia the iPod nano 7th gen just falls short.

    • Hi, sorry, but unfortunately we can’t buy iPod mini. Anyway, they have no money value now. In the future, iPod mini might be considered as collectibles, and their price might increase, but at this moment you won’t sell them for any decent price. Sorry.

  • I have the Ipod 7th generation with Gold back. When using my Air Pods the volume will not go as loud as it once did. With volume all the way up on the Ipod, it should be very loud using the Air Pods. This happened before and I reset the Air pods in the charging case and it worked. Now that option does not work. I even got new Air Pods and will not get as loud as it should.
    Someone suggested updated the software on the Ipod however there is no ‘update software’ option under the General tab in the Ipod like online instructions state there is. Is it possible to update the software on this model or are there any suggestions as to how I can restore the volume?
    Model Number is:MKMX2LL Version 1.1.2.PC

    Thank you
