One thing I want to mention is that you don’t need to download Apple Music tracks to PC, but make sure you have add them to your iTunes library.

Step 3: Convert to MP3 or M4A for iPod Nano/Shuffle

TuneMobie Apple Music Converter supports MP3, M4A and some other formats as output. You can select either MP3 or M4A as output for your iPod. If you are using an iPod Shuffle with only 2GB storage and want to hold as many songs as possible, you may select normal quality in profile list or simply select a bitrate value. If audio quality is what you concern most, then 320kbps MP3 or 256kbps M4A will be good enough.

Step 4: Set conversion speed and rename songs

Click Options button to adjust conversion speed. Generally speaking, there won’t be any problem using 16X faster speed, but if your internet connection is unstable and slow, you may need to slow down conversion speed for those Apple Music tracks you haven’t downloaded to PC. Here you can also set custom file names and folder structures by ID tags and characters. Slash can be used as folder path.

Step 6: Sync converted Apple Music tracks to iPod Nano or iPod Shuffle with iTunes

Now you can exit both TuneMobie Apple Music Converter and iTunes. Then restart iTunes and add the converted Apple Music tracks to iTunes library. As output MP3 and M4A files preserve ID tags, they may look the same as original Apple Music tracks. We recommend you delete the Apple Music tracks or playlists which have been converted. And you can add them back to your iTunes library whenever it’s necessary.

Connect your iPod Nano or iPod Shuffle with USB cable, create a playlist to include all the converted Apple Music tracks you want to enjoy, then sync to the device. When the syncing is done, you can play Apple Music tracks on iPod Nano or iPod Shuffle without any problem.
