What happens after you cancel your subscription?

Cancellation simply means avoiding auto-renewal of the subscription which clears the doubt that you don’t have to wait for the billing day to cancel the subscription. But this will lead to a deletion of all the songs that you downloaded from apple music and the songs you bought from iTunes.
Before your subscriptions expire you will get notified about it so that you can change your decision.
Can I keep my iTunes music?
Your iCloud music library allows you to access your iTunes library anytime you want to if you have added your music to it. But to do so, you will need an Apple Music subscription. So, you don’t have to worry about your collection getting lost forever. It is always a subscription away.
Unlike Spotify, Apple doesn’t allow you to keep your music. But there are always apps available to keep your playlist even after the expiry of the subscription. Such apps allow you to transport files over other apps by temporary moving them to intermediate apps and then downloading them over your device or moving them to any other platform like Spotify.
So, here are the basic steps to cancel your Apple Subscription. Give it a complete thought before cancellation.
