Today I was playing music on my iPhone that I have downloaded through Apple Music. Whenever I try to play the song, I get a message saying that my Apple Music subscription is expired and I need to turn it on in order to stream this song. I get the same exact message when I try to download the song to play offline on my iPhone. I'm perplexed as to why I can't play this song.
You may also have such problem after canceling subscription from Apple Music. If you unsubscribe from Apple Music, you are no longer to play any streaming music you've added or downloaded to your library from the Apple Music catalog. Besides, you cannot get access to Connect content any more, and you will be skip-limited when listening to Apple Music radio stations. Why this happens? Because Apple adds protection to all Apple Music’s tracks to avoid the situation that users just sign up and download a bunch of songs for offline listening, then cancel subscription and run away.
As mentioned above, Apple Music streams are protected, which restricts you from listening to downloaded Apple Music tracks after canceling subscription.
