Music is the most needed entertainment element in our daily lives. When it comes to the music streaming platform, Apple Music has always been on the list. However, due to Fairplay DRM, all Apple Music tracks can only be played on authorized devices. To play Apple Music songs on unauthorized devices like MP3 player, iPod nano, you need to use a third-party tool to convert Apple Music to MP3, M4A, and other common formats to be compatible with your device and players.
In this case, we have put forward a review of the TunesBank Apple Music Converter, which allows you to easily convert Apple Music to MP3, M4A, and FLAC. First, let’s take a look at the pros and cons of the program, and then, I will show you further how to use it to convert Apple Music tracks to DRM-free MP3, M4A, and FLAC files.

TunesBank Apple Music Converter Review: The Cons
It’s a paid software, not free. The Personal License costs $39.95 and can be used on 1 PC or Mac. The Family License is $79.95 and can be used on 5 PC or Mac. But the price is very reasonable, and you can use the trial version to convert the first 3 minutes of each song.
The Mac Version Offers Fewer Output Formats
The current Mac version only provides MP3, M4A, FLAC output formats, while the Windows version provides more options, such as MP3, M4A, AC3, AIFF, AU, FLAC. For Mac users, it’s a pity. But for Windows users, this will be a worthwhile deal.
Only Available on macOS and Windows
Like most music converters, TunesBank Apple Music Converter only works on macOS and Windows. It does not provide mobile applications and Linux version.
