How to Add Apple Music to Serato DJ

"Apparently Apple Music is not a supported source of streaming music on Serato DJ software, which is frustrating. How can I get music from iTunes on Serato DJ?" -- Evans

As a pioneering DJ software in the market, Serato DJ is listed as one of the two most powerful music tools in DJ’s world, while the other one is Rekordbox DJ. To improve the users’ experience, Serato Company has been endeavoring to expand more streaming music sources. And as of now, Serato DJ software supports direct audio resources from Beatsource Link, Beatport Link, SoundCloud, and Tidal Music.

As you can see, some of the most populous streaming music services are not on the list, like Spotify Music, Amazon Music, and also the one we are talking about – Apple Music. As a music service provided by Apple Company, Apple Music/iTunes attracts millions of users per year. Especially for iPhone/Mac users, Apple Music/iTunes is a built-in app of the system, so they use it naturally. So, for these people, it would be quite inconvenient for them to use Serato DJ, in that they have to quit their Apple Music/iTunes account and apply a supported one. Well, is this the only solution? Can we seek a way to use Apple Music in Serato DJ?
