It was probably a given, but the lower-end iPods are not able to take advantage of Apple Music's offline syncing capability. The iPod shuffle and iPod nano, even though they were just introduced yesterday, July 15th, well after the Apple Music launch, are still designed to play purchased music. If you thought an Apple Music subscription could cut down on your purchased music bill, and still allow you to workout to tunes on your smaller iPod, think again. You will need a more full-featured iPod touch or iPhone for that.
