Dropbox, a file hosting service, offers cloud storage, file synchronization, personal cloud, and client software, which uses a freemium business model, where users are offered a free account with a set storage size, with paid subscriptions available that offer more capacity and additional features.
Dropbox can create a special folder on the user's computer, the contents of which are then synchronized to Dropbox's servers and to other computers and devices that the user has installed Dropbox on, keeping the same files up-to-date on all devices. The convenient synchronization function attracts a great many music lovers and wonder whether they are able to upload or transfer their iTunes playlists and Apple Music to Dropbox.
As we all know, Apple gave up the DRM restriction on the entire music catalog of iTunes in 2009. Therefore, we can download, send or transfer iTunes new music files to anywhere after purchasing the songs. However, all the songs on Apple Music and the iTunes songs released before 2009 are still DRM-protected and confined to be played with iTunes or Apple Music app, for which we have to kill the DRM first before uploading them to Dropbox.
