How to Play Apple Music on iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle


Hi again, it is one problem, one solution time. Today we are going to solve this problem “How to play Apple Music via iPod Nano or iPod Shuffle” we found on the Internet.

I started Apple Music trial, and I added some songs to My Music library, when I connect my iPod Nano 7g and try to sync. It says that song was not copied to the iPod because it is a subscription item. It is supposed that I can play them offline, right?

While the iPod nano and iPod shuffle are clearly and prominently advertised on the Apple Music website, you can’t use the music streaming service’s offline downloads with these devices. It is a common problem for iPod users (except for the new iPod touch adding Wi-Fi support). confirmed that New iPod Nano and shuffle won’t get Apple Music to prevent piracy.
It seems there is only one way for iPod users who want to sync and play Apple Music on their devices: buy a new iPod touch. But the iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle do have their advantages. They are small, sleek and portable music players that can store thousands of songs. They are perfect for providing entertainment while exercising, in waiting rooms, on planes, or on long drives. We do not want to strap something bigger like an iPod Touch or an iPhone to our arms while we run or work out.

Why Apple offers no love on the iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle for Apple Music?

It seems piracy worries were the main reason. Apple needs Wi-Fi to authenticate an Apple Music subscription but iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle do not have built-in Wi-Fi features. By disallowing Apple Music from these two iPods, Apple prevents customers who save offline tracks onto their devices and keep these tracks forever after their subscription is cancelled. The new iPod Touch can take advantage of Apple Music because it can run iOS 8.4, have the iOS music app and is Wi-Fi enabled.

It is DRM that caused problems with Apple Music for the iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle. For now, your non-touch iPod will be limited to purchased iTunes music or DRM-free music. If we want to play Apple Music on iPod Nano or iPod Shuffle, we need to make the offline Apple Music tracks DRM free.
