If you let the subscription expire once the trial is over, any songs associated with Apple Music(not the whole iTunes Store) won’t play. The music, albums & playlists you add to your Library using Apple Music will be removed if you do not pay for the monthly service after your free 3 month trial.
When you cancel your Apple Music subscription, you will lose access to all of the music you’ve saved from the service as well as any playlists from Apple Music. You may want to take screenshots of the artists, albums, and playlists before canceling your account.
After your subscription is over
The songs you downloaded from Apple Music catalog will be removed from all your devices. The music you purchased from iTunes will be removed from your device but you can download them without paying again. As you know, iCloud Music Library allows you to access your entire iTunes library.
Hi, i understand that Apple Music is not automatically removed but it is kept active for up to 30 days in case you decide to renew within this time period. I suspect that the next time your iCloud library is updated, you will lose access to Apple Music.
If you don’t have a paid subscription, Apple Music still lets you listen to music you’ve purchased, ripped, or uploaded to your device but you won’t get access to all the features Apple Music offers, like offline listening.
Go to Settings> Music> Under Library column, you’ll see iCloud Music Library option. If it is already on, you can turn it off and on again. You will receive a prompt asking whether to enable iCloud Music Library or not, please select Merge.
If you don’t subscribe to Apple Music
iTunes Match lets you access your music library on any Apple device or a PC with iTunes for Windows. If you buy music from the iTunes Store, you can redownload your past music purchases on your Apple device or a PC with iTunes for Windows.
When you cancel your Apple Music subscription, the library of items downloaded during the subscription is removed, so playlists that contain those items are removed as well.
The iTunes name will fade away, but Apple will keep the store and its functionality in the Apple Music app. You can call it up if you want to buy new songs and albums, but if you do subscribe to Apple Music, you likely won’t have much use for a store. Apple TV will have an app for the Mac, iPhone and Apple Watch, too.
Turn iCloud Music Library off, then on again
Close Settings. Go to Settings> Music, then tap iCloud Music Library to turn it on. Turn on “Show Apple Music.
While Apple Music offers better sound quality and is brilliant for those fully invested in the Apple ecosystem, Spotify wins out in terms of connectivity and podcasts. The two offer impressively vast libraries, though Apple Music’s ability to expand on this via iCloud Music Library arguably gives it the edge there.
You can’t keep the songs. Even after you’re cancelled membership. Apple wants you to make purchases from iTunes Store.
As mentioned above, Apple Music streams are encrypted, which restricts you from listening to downloaded Apple Music tracks after canceling the subscription. To keep your downloaded Apple Music songs forever on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, or other devices, you should learn how to record Apple Music songs.
