Sometimes the exclusive album on Apple Music is not available on other free platforms, and you'll probably need to pay for it if you can find it. What happens if you want to transfer or sync some songs from your Apple Music to a generic MP3 player?

Users who have used Apple Music know that music downloaded from Apple Music has Digital Rights Management (DRM). Because of DRM, you can only play Apple Music on devices that have subscribed to Apple Music Membership.

Apple Music Has a DRM

Why You Fail to Convert Apple Music into MP3

Apple Music has a DRM that means anything you download from Apple Music's streaming catalog is DRM-protected. Due to the DRM limits, you are forbidden to transmit offline Apple Music songs to other devices, burn them to disk, or use them for separate video projects. If your songs are protected, you need a DRM removal tool to remove DRM from Apple Music files and convert the songs to an unprotected format, for instance, some  protected iTunes music needs to be decrypted and converted to normal MP3 files.
