Setup An Apple ID

Set up an Apple ID to use in the iTunes Store, App Store, or iBooks Store, Apple Music and Apple News

 

Your Apple ID is the account you use to access Apple services like the iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks Store, iCloud, iMessage, Apple Music, Apple News, or Podcasts. You can sign in to all Apple services with a single Apple ID and password on all your Apple devices.

To purchase and download content from the iTunes Store, you need an Apple ID. Your Apple ID is the account that you use to access Apple services. If you’ve used other Apple services such as iCloud, or bought apps from the Mac App Store or items from the Apple Online Store, you don’t need to create a new Apple ID. Just sign in to the iTunes Store using that same Apple ID. You can use this Apple ID on all your Apple devices such as iPhone, iPad, Mac Book.
