Can you play games on a nano?
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.
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.
- To update to iOS 10, visit Software Update in Settings. Connect your iPhone or iPad to a power source and tap Install Now. Firstly, the OS must download the OTA file in order to begin setup. After the download has finished, the device will then begin the update process and eventually reboot into iOS 10.
- 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.

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.
- How to Sync Spotify Music to Your iPod
- Quit iTunes, if it's running.
- Open Spotify.
- Plug your iPod into your computer by using the USB cable, as usual.
- Click Erase iPod & Sync with Spotify, if it appears in the Spotify window.
- Sync all your music to your iPod.
- Syncing your Local Files to your iPod classic, nano, or shuffle with Spotify. You can use Spotify to sync local files on you computer, as well as tracks you have purchased through our Download store (although that's currently not available in the US).
- In terms of MP3 players, Spotify is currently only compatible with iPod devices, such as the iPod Shuffle, Nano and Classic. On these devices, you can transfer local files or tracks purchased within the application using the Download Store in Spotify. The Download Store is currently not available in the US.
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 Apple recently updated the iPod range, but it looks like the iPod Shuffle and Nano will remain as outdated as they were in 2012, save for a few small colour updates.
- To do so, make sure all other bluetooth devices in range are turned off. First, turn off the Bluetooth speaker and the iPod Classic. Then, turn on the iPod, and then the Bluetooth Speakers. Put the speakers in pairing mode, then plug the transmitter into the iPod.
- 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.
- An Apple spokesperson confirmed to The Verge that both products have met their end and are now officially discontinued. Apple has long maintained that the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch would ultimately cannibalize its traditional music player hardware. The iconic iPod classic was discontinued in 2014.
