Apple Music Subscription, how does it work?


Apple Music is a music and video streaming service developed by Apple Inc. The service was announced on June 8, 2015, and launched on June 30, in over 100 countries worldwide. Apple Music is divided into 5 main sections: "For You", "New", "Radio", "Connect" and "My Music".

For Apple Music Apple Music membership, on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, you can access 50 million songs on Apple Music easily. However, you can't enjoy Apple Music on MP3 players, even on some Apple’s devices: iPod shuffle, iPod nano, iPad first generation and iPod touch 4th generation. Even you have download Apple Music songs you can’t transfer them to MP3 players since they are in DRM protected M4P format. So, when you add Apple Music songs to iTunes library, you will find the kind of the songs is Apple Music AAC audio file. The downloaded songs come in m4p format which can't be played on non-apple devices.

To play Apple Music songs anywhere you want such as iPod, PSP, MP3 player, Android phone and more, you will need to download Apple Music to MP3 at first, then transfer the songs to your MP3 players.
With the Apple Music plan, you can download music offline, listen to music with no ads, view the song lyrics, get high-quality music, etc. But the main issue is that the music you download from Apple Music is only available on the Apple Music app during the subscription. So if you want to don't want to lose the songs and play them on other devices, I will suggest you use the DRmare Apple Music Converter to download them to MP3, FLAC, WAV, or other formats.
