Apple Music, with its vast library of tracks, holds immense potential for enhancing your Canva designs. However, there's a roadblock: Apple Music tracks are protected by digital rights management (DRM), making their use in Canva a challenge.

In this guide, we'll address this issue and show you how to unlock the creative power of music in Canva. We'll also explain why adding music to your Canva designs is significant, as it can elevate your content, evoke emotions, and leave a lasting impact on your audience. Let's dive in and discover how to seamlessly integrate Apple Music into your Canva projects, bypassing DRM restrictions to enhance your visual content with the perfect soundtrack.

Part 1. Can I Get Apple Music onto Canva?

Canva, your go-to platform for creating eye-catching designs, provides users with a convenient audio library. While it offers a selection of royalty-free music tracks and sound effects, the library may not always have the specific Apple Music track you're looking for. When it comes to adding Apple Music to Canva, the DRM-protected nature of Apple Music makes it challenging for Canva to directly integrate these tracks into your Canva's audio library. Here's why:

Apple Music files are typically encoded in a proprietary format (AAC) and protected by DRM, which means they can't be used outside the Apple ecosystem or directly in Canva without first being converted to a compatible format.

But fear not; there's a solution that allows you to unlock the potential of Apple Music in Canva designs: ViWizard Apple Music Converter.
