Part 1. Is Apple Music Free Now
To start the conversation again, simply ask a new question. I recently bought an album without having subscription to Apple Music. I was able to listen to it for a few days, but then it disappeared. Also I am not able to listen to other previously downloaded songs and albums when I was on a trial period. I can only listen to albums downloaded a long time ago. What is Apple's policy on this? Can I buy and listen to music now and then but without subscribing? Posted on Jun 4, AM.
