Can Apple Music and iTunes exist separately
I am new to the "Apple ecosystem" having replaced my Windows PC with a Mac Book Air and added an iPad Air 2 and just a few days ago a new iPod touch 7th Gen.
It has taken a while to get to grips with iTunes. Most of my music is MP3s that I purchased during my "Windows years". Finally I have all these songs in my iTunes library and onto my two "iThings".
I have also started using Spotify on the "iThings" but can't use it on my Mac (I refuse to have Flash installed because of Adobe's poor attitude to security).
Apple Music looks like a good thing except for the issues around integration with existing iTunes libraries. I have heard horror stories from folks with music collections like mine (not all purchased from iTunes store) loosing large parts of their collections after stopping their Apple Music free trial.
Sorry about the waffle, my question is: Is it possible to have both iTunes and Apple Music installed (on Mac, iPad and iPod) but NOT have them integrated, such as I have now with iTunes and Spotify?
