Apple fans are not new to M4P format which is encrypted by FairPlay Digital Rights Management. Before 2009, Apple sold music through the iTunes Store use the .m4p extension. From 2009, iTunes Plus came and all iTunes Plus tracks are unencrypted while using .m4a extension accordingly. However, with the advent of Apple Music IN 2015, M4P come back. All music you downloaded from Apple Music is encrypted and end with .m4p.

So I understand why an M4P DRM Removal is still extremely needed today. Music in M4P format can only play with Apple products such as iTunes, iPhone, and iPad.
