Updating ipod software without itunes
If you can’t update to mac OS 10.14 Mojave, you might still be able to get some updates for i Tunes (up to i Tunes 12.8).Open the App Store on your Mac, then click Updates at the top of the App Store window.You can do this by going to the IPSW file location and just deleting the file.Sometimes this alone can resolve i OS download problems too.If any i Tunes updates are available, click Install.Depending on the version of i Tunes that you have, there are different ways to update.

The i Tunes software is required to set up your i Pod shuffle and lets you sync, play, import and buy music, movies, audiobooks, games and apps.
Unlike older i Pods, the i Pod shuffle does not come with a CD install disc.
There are actually two ways to do this, the first is using the i OS device itself but there are caveats and limitations with that, and then there is the traditional method of downloading the update files directly from Apple without i Tunes, which is particularly helpful for those who rely on download managers or who are just encountering trouble with i Tunes automatic updates.
We will cover both methods of obtaining i OS software without using i Tunes to download it, we’ll start with the easiest method of using the device itself to get the i OS update. Thanks to OTA (standing for Over The Air) updates, you can also download updates to i OS directly on an i Phone, i Pad, or i Pod touch without even using i Tunes.
