Apple Music DRM free - Remove DRM from Apple Music M4P songs

Apple began to offer music in iTunes Plus, Apple’s DRM-free format with higher quality 256 kbps AAC encoding since April, 2009. However, with the launch of Apple Music, DRM is again used by Apple to protect music.

Apple Music subscribers can choose to download any songs from the world’s largest music catalog directly on to Apple Music available devices. However, tracks and playlists you download from the Apple Music catalog will be DRM-encumbered, which means you can only enjoy them with authorized iTunes. You can’t transfer them to your iPod shuffle, iPod nano or other MP3 players.

Songs downloaded from Apple Music come with .m4p extension and when you try to open it with other music players, you will get:
