Part 1. Why You Need to Remove DRM from Apple Music

Apple Music is one of the most popular music subscription services in the world similar to Spotify and Amazon Music. It owns over 40 million songs in the library. But it is different from iTunes music which supports downloading offline and listen with only a one-time fee.

Apple Music has DRM copyright protection. And it requires you to pay the subscription fee on an annual basis to continue to enjoy the music.

This means you don't really own the music. If you stop the payment, the songs will disappear from your library automatically. What is worse, even if you have paid for the service, you can't get full use of them due to the DRM protection.

For example, you can't download Apple Music on a portable player offline. Because there is no Apple Music app supported it. That is why users may encounter the Apple Music playback issue. Especially on the environment without internet access or have incompatible devices.

In a word, by removing Apple Music DRM, you will get a lot of benefits.

#1. Unlock 5 devices limitation of Apple Music to play on iPod Nano, iPod Shuffle, iPod, iPhone.
