Download iTunes Music for Unlimited Listening

Even if you download the music you have purchased from iTunes to your computer, you still don’t own the song. You can always keep the digital file, and Apple will keep providing service to let you play it on its program. But you just can’t play it elsewhere. You’re not paying for the real ownership of the song but the ability to play it on Apple’s device.

In the past people bought physical copies of their favorite album and they can play those songs anywhere. But now as streaming services keep booming, people can hardly feel the joy of owning music anymore. However, thankfully there’s a way to keep your purchased iTunes music forever and play them anywhere you want.
