Burn Apple Music to CD

You find that you can't burn any Apple Music tracks to a CD. What should you do? Although Apple Music has over 90 million tracks online, sometimes it is not convenient to get access to it if you have an old iPod, portable CD player and other players without an internet connection. Because anything you download from Apple Music's streaming catalog is DRM-protected, you are not allowed to burn any Apple Music audio to CD/ DVD disc nor copying offline tracks to other platforms. Worse still, when the subscription ends, the DRM-protected M4P songs will be disabled and inoperable. Due to DRM, users are unable to burn Apple Music to CD for playing in your car or at home. To break this barrier, you first need to convert Apple Music to MP3.

To burn music to an CD/ DVD disc, all songs on the disc must be in MP3 format. If your playlist contains songs in other formats, such as songs purchased from the iTunes Store, you need to convert them to MP3 format before you can burn them to disc. - From Apple iTunes User Guide
