Launched in 2015 and now 7 years old, Apple Music has become the second-largest music streaming service worldwide. As we are well known, new subscribers to Apple Music get a 3-month free trial period before the service requires a monthly paid subscription. When your free subscription period expires, you may not be able to continue enjoying the latest music unless you pay for the Apple streaming service. However, if you hesitate, there is still one way to get across beyond this limitation. That is, to download them in MP3 format and listen to them on Apple Music for free afterwards. So you can enjoy the music offline and freely for as long as you want. What’s more, you can also transfer your Apple Music to any current mobile phone, like the iPhone 11/11 Pro/11 Pro Max or the Samsung Galaxy Note 10/10+.
