Comprehensive Tutorial to Play Deezer Music on iPod

Apple's iPod is by far the most popular MP3 player. It can do everything that the iPhone can do except make phone calls. iPod is much smaller and lighter than iPhone. It is an affordable Apple device that has full access to the App Store, works with Apple Music, and comes with a relatively nice design. iPod seems like a pretty good option for you to listen to music when you don't want to carry a heavy phone during exercise.

As a music player, iPod can hold a thousand songs. It can also let you access music streaming services such as Apple Music or Spotify. Deezer is a great streaming service that focuses on high-quality audio. There is also a Deezer app on iPod Touch, but that requires iOS 14.0 or later.

Is there any workaround to make Deezer music available for all iPods?

Never mind, here we will offer a comprehensive tutorial to show you how to play Deezer music on iPod Touch, Nano, Shuffle, or Classic without limits.
