iTunes DRM Removal: Remove DRM from iTunes Media

By Tony Moton

December 27, 2017

I bought a movie from iTunes but I need an iTunes DRM removal to help me play the movie on my Android phone. Any recommendation?

Many of iTunes users would ask whether there is an iTunes DRM removal to enjoy iTunes media at everywhere. This is because Apple keeps the iTunes media locked down with DRM. Due to the DRM protection, you are limited in the ways in which you can enjoy them. For instance, a movie downloaded from iTunes Store can't be played on Samsung S8, Kind Fire, Sony TV, etc. And you can't get the Apple Music playback on your MP3 player including iPod Classic/Nano/Shuffle. To get around this, an iTunes DRM removal is necessary.

There are so much inconvenience that caused by Apple Fairplay DRM. Luckily, we round up several pieces of iTunes DRM removal software to get all your iTunes songs, movies, audiobooks, and Apple Music free from DRM.
