Apple Music is one of the most popular streaming music platforms. There are more than 50 million songs on the Apple Music store. Apple Music is available in iTunes on iOS and Android devices. Apple Music currently offers a 3-Month Free Trial for access to millions of songs, exclusives and more. After the free trial expires, you can continue to subscribe it at the price of $9.99 per month for all Users, $14.99 per month for a Family Subscription, and $4.99 per month for Students.
Subscribers can cancel the subscription at any time. In addition, subscribers also can stream Apple Music songs on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch 5 (iOS 8.4 or above), Apple Watch, Apple TV, Mac, PC, Home Pod, CarPlay, Android phone, Sonos and Amazon Echo or download any songs for offline listening.
Is there DRM Protection on Apple Music files?
Apple Inc uses Digital Rights Management Technology (DRM) to protect its 50 million songs in Fairplay. It means that all Apple Music songs are added to Apple’s Fairplay DRM Protection. So, subscribers are only allowed to play Apple Music songs on limited authorized devices with iTunes or Apple Music App. Because the songs are Apple Music AAC audio files, and the downloaded Apple Music songs come in M4P format, these can’t be played on an unauthorized device. Moreover, you can’t transfer the downloaded Apple Music M4P songs to your MP3 players such as Sony Walkman, iPod nano, iPod shuffle, iPod classic, SanDisk, mobile phone, etc.
Can I Convert Apple Music to MP3 for Playing on other Devices?
Since Apple Music songs have DRM protection, is there any way that we can remove DRM protection and convert Apple Music to MP3 so that we can keep Apple Music forever or transfer them to an MP3 player and other devices for playing offline? To keep the Apple Music forever even after cancelling a subscription and enjoying Apple Music on any devices without limitation, get this software.
