“Today I was playing music on my Samsung S7 that I have downloaded through Apple Music. Whenever I try to play the song, I get a message saying that my Apple Music subscription is expired and I need to turn it on in order to stream this song. I get the same exact message when I try to download the song to play offline on my iPhone. How can I solve it? ”
You may have the same problem like this. This is because you’ve purchased the Apple Music songs but you don’t actually own the music you listen to. Apple adds DRM protection to all Apple Music’s tracks to protect the copyright and avoid the sharing. So when your apple music service is unsubscribed, the music you previously downloaded for offline usage will no longer be accessible. That’s to say, you can’t enjoy the music on Apple Music even you have downloaded before.
As mentioned above, Apple Music songs are DRM-locked, which restricts you from listening to downloaded Apple Music tracks after canceling subscription. To keep your downloaded Apple Music songs forever on your iPhone, iPad, Mac or other devices, you should remove DRM from Apple Music songs. Then how to remove DRM from Apple Music tracks? First of all, you need to download the Apple Music Convert by clicking below icon.
Before you using the Apple Music Convert, make sure the Apple Music had downloaded on your computer. If you don’t know how to download it, here is the detailed steps.
Go to “For You” or “New” tab to select a songs > click the “…” icon to add songs to “My Music” or “Playlist” > go to “My Music” tab to find the music file and click the cloud icon with a downward arrow to download.
After conversion, you’ll get the copies of the DRM-free Apple Music songs so that you can store those files on your computer or other media devices for access at anytime you like.
