If you need more space for a wireless update, you can update using i Tunes or delete content manually from your device.
Whether you use i Tunes or update wirelessly, you'll have the same amount of free space on your device after you update.
If i Pod has expired Apple Music tracks on it, delete said tracks. This makes the least sense for the i Pod nano, as the device Bluetooth built in.
You'd think Apple could include a wireless sync-style option for it like it does for the Apple Watch, but no—the nano is doomed to purchased music only, as well.
At its heart, though, this is probably an issue regarding priority and time.
Most of my songs are from my old computer which I now longer have, so I no longer have the songs in i Tunes.
Given the small storage space of both the nano and shuffle, though, I think this is pretty dumb.
For one thing, you'd at most be stealing a couple hundred to a couple thousand songs; for another, how hard would it have been to perform an authentication check every time you plug your i Pod into your Mac?
Even with the recent release of i Tunes 10, speed and performance hasn’t been addressed in any meaningful way.
We have covered some tips to make i Tunes run faster, but if you’re a geek who wants as as little to do with i Tunes as possible, we’ll look at some quality alternatives.
But any time it does release an i Pod software update, you should install it.
