Part 2: How to Download Apple Music and Listen to Them on PS5 Offline?

Playing Apple music directly through the Apple Music app on PS5 is the most convenient way, but there are many contingencies. For example, streaming Apple Music has high requirements for your network, otherwise, it is easy to have unplayable or laggy playback. You also can't cancel your Apple Music subscription, otherwise, you won't be able to continue playing music online with Apple Music. So what to do? Let's not forget that the PS5 not only cooperates with Spotify and Apple Music, you can directly connect to the streaming service app on it, but also has the function of playing music and video via a USB drive. This seemingly unattractive feature is also a very basic and safe way to play music.

So how do we play Apple Music on PS5 via USB Drive? As you know, Apple Music itself is a special audio format protected by Apple FairPlay DRM. What paid users to download for offline playback is also just a temporary cache of specific files that can't be found. But you don't have to worry, this converter called TunePat Apple Music Converter can help you export your favorite songs from Apple Music and save them locally in MP3, AAC, FLAC, WAC, AIFF, or ALAC format. The converter works at high speed without damaging the quality of the songs, and you can get Apple Music songs with original sound quality and ID3 tags.
