How to Transfer Apple Music to USB Drive

Learn how to transfer Apple Music songs to USB drives in simple steps.

Apple Music is a streaming media platform released by Apple Inc.. It now owns over 90 million songs in lossless audio. To make it more convenient for users to enjoy music, Apple Music also allows users to download Apple Music songs for offline playing on the computer, mobile phone, Apple Watch, etc.

However, although Apple Music now is convenient enough for most users, some users still prefer to transfer Apple Music songs to their USB Drives.
