As I know, if you want to play iTunes music on non-Apple devices, you may have to get rip of DRM protection at first. All iTunes audios and videos are encrypted with fairplay DRM protection, making it impossible to be played on Apple unauthorized devices. Fortunately, we can use DRM Audio Converter to convert iTunes audios from M4P to MP3. After conversion, you will be able to play these audios on any devices without limitation. Now there is a thanksgiving sales of this tool, you can get it in Black Friday price on here. Wish this point is helpful to you.
