Apple Music, known for its high-level exclusive releases and full integration into Apple’s popular iOS ecosystem, is the most popular paid streaming music service in the United States, though it was launched in 2015, nine years behind Spotify, which gains the most popularity around the world right now.
Apple Music is a subscription-based music streaming service. It offers three-month free trial for new subscribers. After the trial, users will be charged $9.99 a month automatically for an individual plan if the service is not cancelled manually. Besides, it also offers family plan as well as discounts for students. A family subscription via iCloud Family Sharing is available for up to six people for $14.99 a month. And students are able to get access to that service with $4.99 per month.
If you are an Apple Music new user, you may wonder whether you are able to get Apple songs downloaded to your computer within the free trial period so that you can continue listening to them even if you discontinue the subscription. It's been widely known that Apple Music is a streaming music service which offers DRM-protected songs, for which you are unable to get them as local files. And once you cancel the subscription, you’ll lose all access to your Apple songs.
