‘How to cancel the Apple Music subscription? Do I still have access to downloaded Apple music after unsubscribing Apple Music? How can I keep Apple Music forever?’

Do you also have the same questions? Don’t Worry! You will find the answer to those questions here.

Apple Music is one of the most popular subscription-based music streaming services in the market. It offers two subscription plans: individual and family. If you want to cancel the subscription, the process is fairly easy. But bear in mind that, Apple Music encodes all its media content with an exclusive format, which confines members to playing music only within its app and the subscription period. Therefore, it is obvious that you will lose access to all of the Apple Music songs after canceling the subscription, even though you've downloaded them to your devices. If you insist on canceling your Apple Music membership, you can check out Part 1 to get 7 ways to cancel the Apple Music subscription.
