How to Save Music from Apple Music to Computer

As we all know, Apple Music is a popular streaming music service, for which all the songs on Apple Music are DRM-protected. We get access to Apple Music’s entire catalogue only within three-month free trial period or by paying monthly fee to subscribe the service. Once we cancel the subscription of Apple Music, we will lose access to all of the songs. 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 download 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.
