Apple Music is a popular app developed for the iOS operating system that gives its users access to millions of great songs, podcasts, and audiobooks. Subscription to the service is paid and does not provide free access to music. Today, there are several tariffs, as well as a free trial, which allows you to get acquainted with the service. That is, you will get free of ads access to a music only by paying a monthly subscription to the service.
However, there is a question that disturbed many users: “what would happen if I decided not to continue subscribing to this service after a month of paid access?” After all, not all people have the opportunity and desire to pay a monthly fee to listen to their favorite songs. Unfortunately, once Apple Music stops receiving subscription fees from you, you will no longer have access to the app and all of your songs will disappear. If, however, after a while you decide to pay again for the use of the app, all the tracks that were previously purchased will be returned.
So, can you keep the Apple Music app forever? In fact, the only legal way to keep your purchased content forever is to continue your subscription to Apple Music. The fact is that the developers of iOS products care about the legality of their developments and therefore carefully protect the rights of the artists whose songs you listen to in the app.
Even after subscribing, you cannot take possession of the music because it is protected by digital rights management, which actually permits you to stream music. So, all your songs, albums, and playlists (even downloaded ones) will disappear immediately until the next subscription payment. Of course, many third-parties recourses can guarantee you that once you use their services, your songs will stay with you forever. But there is no guarantee about the security of your data.
If you don’t want to continue your monthly subscription to Apple Music, however, you need to move all your playlists to other streaming service before all the music is gone. To do this, install the special program MusConv, select the streaming services to which you want to move your music files (there may be more than 50), and confirm your selection. Do it before your subscription runs out.
