1. iTunes Isn't Available in Linux As A Native Application

For most of Mac or Windows users, iTunes is the primary way to download, stream and manage music. It's also a great way to buy music or stream tens of millions of songs with Apple Music. But once you migrate to Linux, you’ll find that Apple have not created an iTunes version for Linux due to the very small overall market share of Linux on the desktop, so it seems impossible to install iTunes and get access to any of your Apple Music tracks on Linux. Worse, you also can’t transfer your downloaded Apple Music songs to Linux to enjoy without authorization because of the DRM protection. Even so, it doesn’t mean that you cannot enjoy Apple Music with Linux.
