How to Download Apple Music to PC

Apple Music has now occupied nearly one-third of the global market in music online streaming services, with around 745 million users in the world. Are you one of them? If so, you can’t miss today’s tip, which is especially targeting downloading Apple Music to PC.



"I am a subscribed user of Apple Music, and now I don’t want to pay for Apple Music anymore. Is there any way for me to keep my iTunes playlists on my PC, even without subscription?" --Paul

Paul has subscribed to Apple Music for more than 5 years, and like many other subscribers, he decides to quit subscription for a while. However, he doesn’t want to lose access to his iTunes library while he isn’t subscribed, so firstly he is trying to transfer the iTunes playlist to PC by himself. Soon, he finds that it doesn’t work at all. The songs he downloaded from Apple Music are not actually downloaded as standard format that can be played on other music players, instead, they are some encrypted files, which can merely be reached in Apple Music app. To his amazement, he also lost all the tracks he once downloaded in the app. Then he’s completely living without Music, so he had to subscribe to another month of Apple Music out of his willingness.

That is to say, even you are a paid subscriber to the streaming service of Apple Music, the iTunes library you built is not your personal data – it could be erased totally once you are out of its subscription. So, is there any way to fix this – download Apple Music to computer and make sure that the downloaded files are permanently on your Windows? Regarding this question, one of the best solutions would be the use of TuneCable Apple Music Converter.
