As we all know, Apple Music is a popular streaming music service, for which all the songs on Apple Music are protected. We can only get access to Apple Music's entire catalogue by applying the 1-month free trial, or by subscribing to its service. Once we cancel the subscription of Apple Music, we will lose access to the whole iTunes library.

In other words, we won’t be able to own the Apple Music songs that we listen to, UNLESS we can find a way to save songs from Apple Music to our local computer. Here you will learn a quick and easy way to save and download music from Apple Music to your Mac / PC for offline listening.
