Free iTunes purchases from DRM

iTunes brings us a lot of conveniences. With it, users can play, download and manage multimedia files including music and videos on your iPhone, iPad, iPod and other devices. And you can also stream songs from Apple Music, upload music to iCloud using the iTunes Match service, watch TVs and movies and share music over your home network.

In the past most contents must be purchased through the iTunes Store, such as purchased Audiobook and so on. iTunes Plus refers to songs and some music videos in high-quality AAC format that don't have Digital Rights Management (DRM).

All songs now for sale in the iTunes Store are iTunes Plus. If you previously bought music with DRM from the iTunes Store, you might be able to download DRM-free versions of your songs with an iTunes Match subscription. The tracks must show as Matched or Purchased in the iCloud Status column in your iTunes library. The same album or song must also still be available in the iTunes Store.

Do you know that iTunes purchased Audiobooks and streaming Apple Music files, purchased iTunes movies, and iTunes movie rentals are still with DRM.
