Summary

Windows Phone (WP) was once the third big operating system. WP is developed by Microsoft for smartphones. Though its glory days has gone, some consumers still stick to WP. Due to lack of market and resultant lack of interest from APP developers, users don’t have access to many applications on WP. If you are Windows Phone enthusiastic and Apple Music subscriber, you may wonder how you can get Apple Music songs on Windows Phone. Apple Music Converter is a simple and efficient solution.

What You Need to Know about Windows Phone

Windows Phone was first launched in October 2010 with Windows Phone 7 with a new user interface derived from Metro design language. The latest version was Windows Phone 8.1 released on April 14, 2014. In 2015, Windows Phone was replaced by Windows 10 Mobile. However, recently the head of Microsoft's Windows division said Windows 10 Mobile would no longer be "a focus" for the company which means Windows 10 got its final death sentence. In other words, developing from Windows Phone, Windows Phone 7.1/7.5/7.8, Windows Phone 8/8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile, WP finally withdrew from the stage of history.
