  • You won’t be able to listen to any Apple Music track, even those downloaded offline.
  • After some time (around 30 days), all the playlists you created, and songs you added, might be permanently removed from your account.
  • After cancellation, you may be able to use it until the end of your billing period. However, if it is a free trial, you might lose access immediately.
  • You can continue to listen and download songs and albums you purchased via iTunes Store.
  • If you use Apple Music on several devices, you need to cancel it from only one. It will be automatically removed from all your devices.
  • Unless you subscribe separately to iTunes Match, you can not stream the songs that you added (uploaded) to Apple Music from your computer (like old tracks ripped from CDs or downloaded elsewhere).
    Note: iTunes Match is available for free with Apple Music subscription.
