Part 2 How to Store iTunes Music/Apple Music on SD Card via PC
Apple Music Converter
All iTunes purchased music or downloaded Apple Music tracks are copy-protected using a Digital Rights Management called FairPlay. Thus, those DRM-protected M4P tracks are not playable on non-Apple devices, including MP3 Player, Xbox One, USB drive, SD card, etc. What's worse, no matter where you downloaded the Apple Music songs from, the iOS version of Apple Music or Android version of Apple Music, the streaming music downloaded with Apple Music are prohibited from copying to other devices and all music stream will become inoperable if the subscription is canceled.
So this is why the DRM removal software like Apple Music Converter is required. It will help you convert the DRM-locked Apple Music/iTunes music from M4P to unprotected MP3 or other formats as you want. After that, you can take full control over the downloaded M4P music tracks and freely play the music back on any media player or keep Apple Music after subscription ends.
