Sidify Apple Music Converter
If you are a Linux user, there are high chances that you might be using iTunes or Apple Music streaming music service. As iTunes is one of the most used applications across any platform to download, stream and manage music and videos, as well as offers access to 90 millions of Apple Music tracks. While its competitor Spotify has a native Linux client, Apple has not bothered to develop a desktop application for iTunes for Linux. Even if iTunes isn’t available in Linux as a native application, you can still eventually try to find a way to efficiently play Apple Music on your Linux. Here we'll reveal the best two ways to play Apple Music on Linux.
Method 1: Run iTunes in Linux via WINE
Method 2: Convert Apple Music for Syncing to Linux
Though you can't find a Linux version of iTunes, you can still run iTunes in Linux using WINE. It adds a compatibility layer so that Windows applications work on Linux, but the results are far from perfect — At least, it’s still worth a try. It will be a little complicated but you can follow the steps below to get iTunes installed on Linux.
Step 1: Install WINE. WINE is a free download available here.
Step 2: Once WINE is installed, check to see if your version of Linux needs any extras installed to support iTunes or its files. One common tool that is used in this situation is PlayOnLinux.
Step 3: With your environment configured correctly, next you'll start installing iTunes. To do that, download a 32-bit or 64-bit Windows version of iTunes from Apple and install it. It will install in the same way as if you were installing it on Windows.
Step 4: If the installation can go smoothly, try an earlier version of iTunes. But it will lack of the latest features.
Step 5: Launch iTunes and sign in your account. Now you can listen to Apple Music on Linux.
