    I have a question.

    Before Apple Music I had an iTunes Match subscription and had about 20k songs either matched or uploaded into the cloud.

    I now have Apple Music.

    I've just had an email saying my iTunes Match subscription is renewing in a couple of weeks (it did this last year but I didn't do anything about it).

    Do I still need iTunes Match as well? Does having it give me anything extra that my Apple Music account doesn't?

    Thanks in advance!

    You can allow your iTunes Match subscription to lapse as now the full features of iTunes Match are included with Apple Music.

    Does Apple Music now allow one to download their owned music on any device without DRM?

    ...although I would still recommend full backup first.
