How to Get Apple Music onto OneDrive

OneDrive is a cloud storage service built-in based on Office 365 under Microsoft Corporation. It supports the storage of many types of files. Of course, OneDrive includes the ability to upload your music collection. If you save your music files locally on your computer or phone, you can easily copy and paste them onto OneDrive Music folder manually and have them show up in Groove Music apps. However, getting music from Apple Music onto OneDrive is much more complicated.

The reason is that Apple Music encrypts its files to restrict the use of its media content by customers. Tracks downloaded from Apple Music are protected and labeled as Apple Music AAC audio files in M4P and ALAC format. And most devices and media players won't support the M4P and ALAC files. It means that you cannot play the downloads on your MP3 Player, car player, or other devices. So does OneDrive. Encrypted files, for example, Apple Music's encrypted M4P and ALAC files, are not allowed to be uploaded to OneDrive. It supports uploading music files in MP3, M4A, WMA, WAV format, but M4P and ALAC formats are not supported. It means that you can't directly upload songs you saved from Apple Music.

Therefore, if you want to get rid of the restrictions of Apple Music, listen to the songs on Apple Music at any time and anywhere, the first thing you have to do is to decrypt Apple Music files. Then, you can upload Apple Music songs to OneDrive, which has both a mobile and a computer version, to save and play your music.
