Apple Music is all about streaming. You pay a flat fee to unlock access to Apple Music’s entire catalogue, but you don’t actually own the music you listen to.

That is to say, in the whole month, Apple Music lets you save tracks to listen to offline, You won’t own those files and you won’t be able to offload them anywhere else. You can’t burn them onto a disc, use them in separate video projects, or put them on other devices. If you decide to cancel your Apple Music subscription, you’ll lose access to those songs.

If you want to remove the DRM from Apple Music and then play these M4P music files without limitations any more, how to do?

To solve the above problems well, Macsome iTunes Music Converter is helpful and useful, which uses high recording and encoding to MP3 / AAC technology to convert these DRM Music files to MP3 formats, and then you can enjoy these files on any MP3 player devices as you like.

Apple reportedly planning big Apple Music overhaul for June

 

imagesAccording to the latest report from Bloomberg, Apple is planning to unveil an overhauled and improved version of its Apple Music streaming service at their Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in June.

The revamped version of Apple Music will reportedly include an all-new interface that’s “more intuitive to use”. The company will also improve the integration between their music streaming and download services, and online radio features will be expanded.

To those who closely follow or use Apple Music, it’s no surprise that the company wants to improve the service in the near future. Apple hasn’t really added any new functionality to Music since it launched last year, despite many criticizing it for a lack of features compared to other music streaming services like Spotify.

Apple will launch a big marketing push for Apple Music alongside the release of the overhauled service. While Music currently has around 13 million subscribers, Spotify enjoys a paid subscriber base around 30 million, with 75 million in total listening on an active basis. The marketing push will help Apple claim a bigger slice of the music streaming pie.

Alongside a revamped Apple Music, Apple is expected to unveil new versions of Mac OS X and iOS at WWDC. There’s also a change we may see a new version of the MacBook Pro as well as the Apple Watch.

iTunes 12.4 will stop a bug that accidentally deleted users’ music

 

iconApple’s much-criticized iTunes app came under fire again last week, after musician James Pinkstone claimed the software deleted 122GB of his own music. While Apple sent two engineers to Pinkstone to try and diagnose the problem, the company has also released an iTunes update that includes “additional safeguards” against music deletion.

It’s not clear exactly what those safeguards are, but TechCrunch claims iTunes version 12.4 includes them. Apple acknowledged the music deletion issues last week, claiming the company had only seen the issue in an “extremely small number of cases,” and that it had been unable to reproduce the issue. The curious case of music deletion doesn’t appear to have been fully solved, but some speculate these “additional safeguards” might help protect iTunes users from accidentally deleting music from an iTunes Music Library.

iTunes 12.4 also includes a “simpler design” that brings back the old left-hand navigation bar. We’ve reached out to Apple for an update on the iTunes music deletion issues, and we’ll update you accordingly.
