Create Apple ID without credit card

An Apple ID is basically your username for everything you do with your Apple products. Use an Apple ID in the iTunes Store, enable iCloud on all your devices, shop in the Apple Online Store, book reservations at the Apple Retail Store, even access the Apple Support website and more.

If you’re creating an Apple ID, Apple will ask you if you want to fill in your credit card information for purchases with the Apple ID.

There’s a way to create an Apple ID without adding a payment method on your Mac, iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
