Although Apple has decided to discontinue manufacturing all iPod models except for the iPod Touch on July 27, the role that iPod has ever played in our music entertainment life should always be considered significant. During the 15 years since the first generation iPod was released, iPod models have been used by more than 390 million people so far as the best music players to play any music offline. However, many Spotify users may find it's not easy to sync their Spotify music tracks to iPod as before. Here we picked such a problem posted on Spotify official community as below:

"I have an iPod nano but I cant sync it with Spotify any more. I've seen that I can put my Spotify music there. But I don't understand the process at all. I connect the iPod to desktop version, but the app doesn't recognize the iPod and doesn't pops up the bar "devices" or the option "erase your iPod and sync to Spotify". I'm confused if it 's possible or not. Can someone help?"

If you are also encountering the same problem, don't be panic. In the following article, we'll explain the reason why you can't sync Spotify to iPod while introducing a simple solution to easily sync your iPod with Spotify in order to listen to Spotify music on iPod offline.

Spotify on iPod: Accessibility

In fact, Spotify has added a feature that will let you sync your music with your Apple iPod, including iPod Classic, iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle via USB. Unfortunately this feature was removed a while ago from the Spotify desktop app. Now Spotify is only supported by iOS 7 and above. That's to say only the iPod touch 5th or higher generations of iPod is supported.
