How to keep Apple Music songs after cancelling membership

With Apple Music subscription, you can download any songs, albums and playlists for offline playback. However, once you cancel the subscription, all songs you downloaded are no longer playable. When you are no longer paying for an Apple Music membership and you open iTunes or iOS music app their system will notice that you are not a paying customer, thus limit access to such music (not necessarily delete them but ask you to activate your paying membership). However, if you have purchased any songs or albums through the iTunes Store, those purchases will still be available to you even after cancelling your membership.

It's also worth noting that if you use Apple's Family Sharing feature, any songs that you added to your library through Apple Music will be removed from the other family members' libraries when you cancel your membership.

If you want to keep the songs that you added to your library through Apple Music, you will need to purchase those songs individually or subscribe to Apple Music again. Another option is to use a third-party app or software to record or download the songs from Apple Music before cancelling your membership.

Even if you drag them out on your pc to other players, stream media content contains digital rights management. But don't be upset. Here we will show you an easy way to play Apple Music songs even after membership. All you need to do is download Apple Music songs to MP3 , M4A, etc. on your Mac or Windows before cancelling membership.
