One of the most exciting news of Apple Music in 2020 is that Apple has officially launched Apple Music’s web player, which means you can now access your Apple Music library via any web browser and listen to your favorite songs online without iTunes or desktop Music app.
It’s not a “new” feature though because some of its competitors, such as Spotify and Amazon Music, have already supported web players for quite a long time. And the web-based version of Apple Music obviously needs more improvements in the future so as to provide a better streaming experience for its users.
Perhaps you are not a fan of listening to music via your web browser. Or you might prefer playing your Apple Music playlists on other non-apple devices offline. If that’s the case, then you should really check out this tutorial because it will help you get the most out of your Apple Music subscription.
The techniques you’ll learn in the tutorial:
- Easily get rid of Apple Music’s DRM with TuneFab Apple Music Converter
- Download all Apple Music songs at once and save them as MP3, M4A, or other formats.
What is TuneFab Apple Music Converter?
No matter which music streaming service you use, they all have one thing in common – the DRM restriction. DRM is short for Digital Rights Management, which is a technology used for restricting the use of copyrighted digital media. For Apple, they use FairPlay DRM technology to encrypt offline music tracks from Apple Music. All Apple Music songs are encoded as protected M4P format making them only playable on Apple’s authorized devices.
When DRM is protecting the copyright of digital work, it also brings significant inconvenience to users. To make it possible for users to play their purchased content without suffering from the restrictions, some dedicated tools like TuneFab Apple Music Converter are thereby created.
TuneFab Apple Music Converter is a specialized software that can convert Apple Music’s M4P tracks to high-quality MP3, M4A, AAC, WAV, M4R, and other popular audio formats. This software is also known as an all-in-one iTunes converter because it can handle almost all kinds of iTunes media files, such as purchased iTunes songs, iTunes audiobook, iTunes podcast, music videos, etc.
