How to keep Apple Music after subscription ends? With UkeySoft Apple Music Converter, you can keep playing Apple Music files after you cancel the Apple Music subscription.

What happens if canceling the Apple Music subscription?

“My Apple Music subscription will expire at the end of this month. I want to know if the music I downloaded before will be kept playing after the expiration? If not, is there a way to play Apple Music songs forever even if I am not a premium subscriber?”

How to Keep Apple Music Songs after Subscription Expired?

Apple Music is a £9.99 monthly subscription service that you can sign up for a free trial for three months. With Apple Music subscriptions, you can listen to approximately 45 million ad-free songs in iTunes. You can stream all your favorite songs through Apple Music for offline listening instead of purchasing specific tracks. However, not everyone is able to pay a monthly subscription fee. What if you plan to break the Apple Music subscription service but don't want to lose all downloaded Apple Music songs?

As we all know, all Apple Music songs, playlists are protected by DRM, which prevents you from enjoying the music on devices that are not authorized by Apple, and you are less likely to transfer them to other devices. In other words, if you decide to stop your subscription, all Apple Music tracks will disappear. That’s to say, only when you successfully remove DRM from Apple Music tracks will you have the opportunity to save these songs permanently.

Convert Apple Music M4P to DRM-free MP3/M4A, etc.
