How to Convert Apple Music to MP3

Learn how to download & save Apple Music as MP3 files in 5 simple steps.

Apple Music was announced on June 8, 2015, and launched on June 30, 2015. Now it owns over 100 million songs in lossless audio. Users can listen to singles, albums, or existing playlists and download Apple Music songs offline. Compared with other similar products, Apple Music provides a 3-month free trial. For many people, this is undoubtedly a huge attraction - even if you may not subscribe it after 3 months, but you will at least give it a try. After the 3-month free trial, you have to pay for the service.

While enjoying Apple Music, it is important to caution that once your Apple Music account expires, you will not be able to play the songs in Apple Music. Some may ask: I have downloaded all those songs. How can they restrict me? Apple Inc. also considered this issue, so they encrypt all music files of Apple Music. Therefore, you cannot continue to play songs after the membership expires. Also, regardless of whether you subscribe to Apple Music, you can’t play Apple Music songs you downloaded on other software, such as car music player and DJ software. As a result, if you want to stream Apple Music songs without the limitation, we advise you to convert Apple Music to MP3. In this case, you have to use a third-party tool. Here we recommend you AudiFab Apple Music Converter.
