While there are a number of music streaming services available in the market, Apple users still prefer to go for Apple Music as it is Cupertino based company’s very own music streaming service. If you are a subscriber of the service, you would be glad to know you can access all the music tracks on all of your Apple devices.

The problem arises though when you want to listen to your Apple Music like any other music files on your computer. Since all the music tracks on the Apple Music platform are DRM protected, you cannot directly transfer or download them on your computers. Fortunately, there is a workaround that lets you bypass this restriction and allows you to enjoy Apple Music on your computers. It uses an app called AnyTrans which we will talk about further in the rest of the guide.

So let’s find out how to save Apple Music on a computer using an application.
