To play Apple Music on any MP3 Player, you need to remove drm from apple music. Just like other iTunes digital media content, Apple Music is also protected by DRM technology, something used to protect the copyright of the original digital works. Because of the DRM protection, subscribers can only listen to Apple Music songs on Apple's products, like iTunes, iOS, etc. In other words, you can't play Apple Music on common MP3 players, nor can you burn Apple Music to CD. Worst of all, once you unsubscribe the service, you won't be able to access the songs you downloaded before, as they will disappear automatically from your library.

To get the full ownership of the subscribed Apple Music, all you'll need is a third-party DRM removal software for Apple Music which can bypass the DRM protection for good. Here we are talking about TunesKit Apple Music Converter, a well developed Apple Music converting tool to strip DRM from Apple Music streams while converting the encrypted songs from .m4p to .mp3, .aac, .wav, .m4b, . m4a, and .flac.

There are lots of DRM removal tool for Apple Music, and iTunes M4V audio files. But there are also many other DRM removal software for other streaming music platforms, such as Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, etc. 

From the above suggestion, I can guess you have known which one is the best Apple Music Converter, but what about Spotify Converter and Tidal Music Converter to convert Spotify and Tidal music files for playing anywhere without a problem. 

Fortunately, there are lots of professional music converter on AudFree, you can visit and find the target DRM removal program as your purpose.
