When planning for this update we didn’t anticipate the impact it would have on Ledger Nano S capacity. This was not planned obsolescence, simply put, we messed up. We apologize and we’re committed to making it right.

The project team apologized for the incident and promised to fix the problem during the second quarter of 2019.
