Can you get Spotify on an iPod nano?
Hey there, unfortunately it is not possible to sync any songs from Spotify to the iPod Nano. The feature you are referring to is an old feature of the desktop app that allowed you to sync MP3s to the iPod, however this never allowed you to sync Spotify songs to the iPod.
Though they run some apps, they don't run third-party iOS apps (that is, apps created by anyone other than Apple). The 7th and 6th generation iPod nanos come pre-installed with a handful of apps created by Apple. But you can use it only if you have an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. Still no luck for iPod Nano.
- If you're a young person who can't get their hands on an iPhone, then the iPod touch 6th generation is certainly nothing to be ashamed of. Not only can it do games, but it can run all of the popular iOS apps like Facebook, Snapchat, Whatsapp, Periscope, and more.
- Update your device using iTunes
- Install the latest version of iTunes on your computer.
- Connect your device to your computer.
- Open iTunes and select your device.
- Click Summary, then click Check for Update.
- Click Download and Update.
- If asked, enter your passcode. If you don't know your passcode, learn what to do.
- This generation was the only iPod Touch in the iPod Touch line-up to run iOS 7. iOS 9.3.5 is the last update that supports the iPod Touch 5th generation as it did not receive iOS 10 along with the iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and 3, and iPad Mini 1st generation due to hardware limitations.
5th-3rd Generation iPod nano: Games and Apps. Unlike the newer models, the 3rd, 4th, and 5th generation iPod nanos can run a limited number of third-party apps. They come with some games, too. That said, these are not iPhone apps and these models don't run iOS.
- Method 2 From Your Computer
- Open iTunes.
- Click on iTunes Store in the right sidebar, under Store.
- Search for the app you are interested in, or click Apps on the upper bar to browse popular apps.
- Tap the Free App or Buy Now button under the icon.
- Enter your password when prompted and wait for the app to download.
- How to download music to your iPod or iPhone
- Download iTunes. You can find the latest version here for free.
- Add songs to your iTunes library. Open iTunes and go to “File” and then select “Add Folder to Library”.
- Connect your device.
- Decide which music to import.
- Sync your device.
- Eject your device.
- Get updated.
- Get connected.
- Open iTunes, click File > Add File to Library to import your music (Ctrl+O). Connect your iPod to the computer through USB cable. And then you can copy and paste the songs from the iTunes library over to the iPod device, which is supposed to show on the left side of iTunes.
Lack of WiFi means Apple Music will not come to iPod Nano or Shuffle. Apple recently updated the iPod range, but it looks like the iPod Shuffle and Nano will remain as outdated as they were in 2012, save for a few small colour updates.
- Wireless connectivity in the 5th generation iPod touch is respectable, but nothing we haven't seen before in the series. There's Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and support for Nike fitness sensors, but location services still rely on Wi-Fi network mapping rather than proper GPS and – like the iPhone 5 – there's no NFC.
- The iPod Nano (stylized and marketed as iPod nano) is a portable media player designed and marketed by Apple Inc. The first generation model was introduced on September 7, 2005, as a replacement for the iPod Mini, using flash memory for storage.
- Therefore, you can't use Spotify on iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod shuffle. And, unfortunately, it is still impossible to sync any songs from Spotify to the iPod Nano via USB cable.
