After 4 years of operation and development, Apple Music has become one of the most famous music streaming service platform worldwide. In 2019, the number of Apple Music users in the United States surpassed Spotify, which means Apple Music has become the most used music streaming service in the United States. And in the United States and even the whole world, there is something as popular as Apple Music, which is also a very important symbol in the music industry, the iPod. I believe that people who like music must have used or heard of the iPod, a product developed by Apple Inc, just like Apple Music. So, naturally, people wonder if they can listen to Apple Music on various models of iPod. Unfortunately, I am afraid that I will give a negative answer to this question.
Currently, the only iPod models that support Apple Music are the 5th, 6th and 7th generation iPod Touch running with iOS 8.4 or later. Users of other models like iPod Nano, iPod Shuffle, iPod Classic and the older generations of iPod Touch are unable to listen to Apple Music on their devices. After Apple Music was launched, almost all the users had reported that they feel very disappointed with this fact. Many users found this after joining Apple Music’s 3-month free trial or even after paying for the subscription. Some users also tried to transfer downloaded Apple Music tracks to their iPods, but they all ended in a failure message that “Apple Music can not be copied to an iPod”. However, there is still a method to help users to enjoy Apple Music with all iPod models.
It’s known to all that all generations of iPod support plain audio file formats like MP3, WAV, AAC, M4A, etc. So, what if we just convert the Apple Music tracks to audio files in MP3, M4A, WAV, AAC, etc. formats? This could be a feasible way for all iPod users to enjoy Apple Music on their iPods. To achieve this, we will need a tool that can convert Apple Music tracks to plain format for offline listening and other purposes, TuneKeep Audio Converter is exactly such a professional Apple Music Converter. This is currently the most convenient and simple method, so I recommend that every iPod and Apple Music user should try this tool.
