Part 2. Best Method to Sync Library with Apple Music

Apple Music has a convenient built-feature you can use to transfer your library on your devices. However, if you sign out of your Apple ID or cancel your subscription, you are not able to access and sync your music library on all of your devices. Consequently, the music that you’ve downloaded from Apple Music cannot be accessible on your devices.

In addition, Apple Music isn’t a backup service. So, you need to have a copy of your music and other content in case your device is ever replaced, lost or damaged. What if you want to sync and make a copy of your library once? Fear not, as that’s just as easy to do. Thankfully, Tunelf Audio Converter could complete this special task.
