They probably released these to keep the audience for apple music as open as possible

Either that and/or they wanted to satisfy people of getting a new iPod.

Another noticeable change is they took Way the thing on the back where you could hook the strap on to. Why would they do this????

I'm surprised they didn't put it on the iPhones

Because the iPod doesn't have a tall side unless you get a touch. This may cause an awkward cramp in the cord on the headphone, plus if you hate it just ignore it. You're not being forced to use it. Why would you not do it anyway?
