Editor's Note

As we all know, if you subscribe to Apple Music, you can download the music for offline playback, but you are not able to share the songs with others because of DRM. If you want to transfer downloaded Apple Music songs to other devices or share them to your friends, you might need to get rid of the DRM protection first. Luckily, our TuneFab Apple Music Converter is able to remove DRM protection from Apple Music and convert Apple Music to plain MP3 file. After converting all M4P songs to DRM-free MP3, you will be able to transfer the songs to iPhone, iPod or iPad easily via using a third-party tool like TuneFab WeTrans.
