Listening to the fair-sounding songs is an enjoyable experience on a sunny afternoon. However, it’s not convenient to listen to music with a relatively big iPad, compared with the iPod in size. With the light and easy-to-hold iPod, it would be a nice choice to enjoy the music anywhere you like. If you want to share some of your iPad music with your iPod, you can get two methods here in this iMobie guide.

Method 1: Transfer Music from iPad to iPod without iTunes

This is the first method that we’ll use to get music from iPad to iPod. And the tool we’ll use is a comprehensive iPhone/iPad/iPod content transfer & manager – AnyTrans for iOS. Here are the features of this tool.

It is to some extent time-consuming and complex to transfer purchases between two devices with iTunes, and it won’t support directly transferring the non-purchased ones. To freely transfer your purchased and non-purchased songs from iPad to iPod without losing any data, I will show you the second method. And this method is also applied to transfer music from iPod to iPad.

The Bottom Line

That’s all about how to transfer music from iPad to iPod, hope you could solve your problem after reading this post. AnyTrans for iOS can not only transfer music from your old iPad to iPod directly, but it can also transfer movies, photos, videos, and any other types of personal info and media data to your iOS device.
