Apple quietly took down the website for iPod nano and iPod shuffle on July 27. Both products have met their end and are not officially discontinued. The iPod nano, this adorable and portable media player has been favored with worldwide popularity for years, so you can still see people using it crossing the street though its production ceases.

That means that there are still quite a few people being in trouble with iPod Nano issues. For example, iPod Nano gets stuck somehow. This might be due to either the compatibility issue or power problems. You might keep your iPod Nano fully charged or try the ways listed below.
