How to Remove DRM and Convert Apple Music M4P to MP3?


Apple Music has DRM copyright protection and it requires you to pay the subscription fee on annual basis to continue to enjoy the music. This means you don't really own the music. If you stop the payment, the songs will disappear from your library automatically. What is worse, even if you have paid for the service, you can't get full use of them due to the DRM protection. For example, you can't download Apple Music on portable player offline easily as there is no Apple Music app supported for it; you can’t play Apple Music on MP3 player like iPod nano/classic/shuffle, Sony Walkman, AGPtEK M20S, popwoods Music Player, MYMAHDI MP3/MP4 Music Player, Sony NWE395, AGPTEK A01T, FiiO X1 II Lossless Media Player, RCA 4GB Sport Clip; you can listen to Apple Music on Android mobile phone without Apple Music offline; or make Apple Music as iPhone/Android phone ringtone, etc.

While if you're not going to be connected to the internet, or if you're worried about your cellular data, you'd better choose to download songs, albums, and even entire playlists to your Apple devices or any HD devices for offline listening.
