Q1: What Format Does Apple Music Download in?

A: Apple Music downloads and streams music in AAC format. But the downloaded songs are protected under digital rights management, encoded in M4P format.

Q2: What Is the Difference between ALAC and AIFF?

A: While both are lossless formats, ALAC is compressed while AIFF is not. Therefore, the ALAC size will be significantly smaller for the same file and you will need a larger drive to save the AIFF file. Since there is no compression, AIFF does not require decompressing files when playing or editing. As a result, the AIFF ran much more smoothly than the ALAC. Another advantage of AIFF is that it better preserves ID3 tags and metadata. That's why it's recommended to convert M4P songs to AIFF for editing.
