Apple's Ecosystem Lock-in: iTunes Music, Video, and Books
Before January 6, 2009, audio files sold in iTunes Store were protected using Apple's own FairPlay DRM solution. As of today, all music sold in the iTunes Store after April 7, 2009, is DRM free while Apple put the DRM back to the songs in its newly released music streaming service, Apple Music. Currently, all video content, including movies, TV shows, and music videos sold through iTunes is DRM protected and can only be played on devices compatible with the FairPlay DRM. With iBooks, Apple offers both copy protected books as well as books without DRM on its iOS devices. In the case of audiobooks, they are generally offered in file formats, such as M4A or M4B, with embedded DRM protection.
Those facts portray a gloomy situation we have to face, that is, several types of content available for purchase in iTunes are subject to ecosystem lock-in, where we as users are prohibited from dealing with the purchased items in ways we like. That's not the end of the story, however. There are of course methods to strip DRM from iTunes media content, such as the ones introduced in the following article.
1. Free offline Apple Music or old iTunes M4P songs from DRM
If you are subscribing Apple Music streaming service or have a large collection of iTunes music files purchased before 2009, you may have the need to move away from Apple ecosystem by transferring those DRM-restricted songs to non-Apple platforms. In such a case, you are here to meet TunesKit DRM M4P Converter, a perfect DRM removal solution developed to completely remove DRM from offline Apple Music M4P songs, as well as the old iTunes music purchases protected by DRM. It's designed to free the M4P audio from DRM by converting the copy-protected songs to common MP3, AAC, M4A, FLAC, WAV, and M4B with original ID tags preserved. If you own any mac machine running OS X 10.8 or later, you should install the TunesKit M4P Converter for Mac.

2. Remove DRM from iTunes M4V movies, TV shows, music videos
As one of the largest online stores selling digital copies of movies and TV episodes worldwide, iTunes ecosystem, regardless of the DRM copy right, has made it convenient for customers to pick up any hot movie piece in minutes. In order to get the full control of the purchased or even rented movies from iTunes, you need to use a third-party iTunes DRM removal tool to decrypt the DRM. The magic M4V media converter we are talking about here is TunesKit DRM M4V Converter for Mac (Windows). It's an all-in-one DRM cracker that was designed to easily strip DRM protection from iTunes movies (rented and purchased), TV series, as well as music videos while converting the DRM-ed M4V videos to non-DRM MP4, M4V, MOV, AVI, MKV, MP3, AAC and other common media formats. It supports lossless conversion for the iTunes M4V movies to MP4 and M4V formats. That's to say, it will keep the original quality, including AC3 5.1 audio, subtitles, Closed Captions, AD, etc. so that you can enjoy the same lossless quality as the original movies even after the DRM is removed.

3. Break DRM lock from iBooks ePub files
Because of the DRM protection, the books sold from iBooks store, unlike the common ePub files, are only recognizable by Apple's devices. If you want to read the iBooks on other eBook readers, such as Amazon Kindle, or Nook, you'll have to firstly bypass the DRM protection from those ePub books with some useful iBooks DRM removal applications, such as TunesKit DRM iBook Copy for Mac, a powerful and smart DRM cracker for iBooks on Mac.
