Part 1. How to download Apple Music to MP3 format?

Apple Music is accessible on Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android as yet, which enables users to listen to music on various devices on the move. However, there are still a few unexpected limitations that hinder a seamless listening experience.

As some Apple Music subscribers reported, when they tried to stream lossless music online, they were interrupted at times because of the unstable internet, since a more fluent internet condition and more data are required. In addition, even though subscribers can listen to music offline under unsatisfactory network conditions using the download feature, users are only allowed to listen within the app. However, more and more users desire to play songs from their Apple Music account on other devices.
