How to Make Apple ID without Credit Card?
So, you want to make an Apple ID without using credit card, right?
A few years ago, providing the details of a credit card was essential to create an Apple ID. But it’s been a while since apple got rid of this necessity. Now you can open an apple id even if you don’t have or own a credit card.
If you are wondering how to make Apple ID without credit card, consider yourself lucky. I am going to walk through the exact steps needed for the process here.
So, without further ado, let’s get started.
How to Make Apple ID without Credit Card?
Before we get into the core of this article, let me give you an introduction to Apple ID.
What is Apple ID?
In simpler terms, Apple ID is an all-in-one you need in order to sign into every Apple service. You must provide a valid email address at the time of signing up. Once the process finishes, you can log in using the email address and the password you provided.
Of course, you can create an ID free of charges.
Benefits of Apple id?
Having an ID gives you an advantage that you can access any of the apple products anywhere using your own id. This is like a google account hat let’s you access google drive, docs, Gmail from anywhere in the world if you have your own email.
So, here we go with the step by step process of creating an apple id without using a credit card.
I have divided the entire process into several steps for your convenience. Just refer to the steps given below and act accordingly to make an Apple ID for free.
Note:- You can make an ID using an iDevice (iPhone, iPad or iPod) or iTunes as well. I am going to explain both of them for you.
How to Make an Apple ID for Free using iPhone?
Follow the steps given below carefully.
Step 1: Make sure you are not logged into an Apple account. In case you are signed in, you should sign out to create a new ID.
Step 2: You have to open the app store on your device. I hope you won’t find hard to spot and open it.
Step 3: Look for any free app on the store. You won’t have to be choosy here as any free item works well.
Step 4: Now tap the free button to go to the installation. (Make sure you haven’t logged into any Apple account).
Step 5: You will get a new prompt asking you to use an existing ID or create a new one. Yeah, you guessed it right. Just go with the second option that says ‘Create New Apple ID’.
Step 6: The next step is selecting the country or region. You will get a list of countries to choose from. The country should match with the address you will add later.
Step 7: What you see next is the terms and conditions. The document is so long that it will take hours to thoroughly go through. Tap Agree twice to move on to the next step.
Step 8: You need to provide a few necessary details here including email address, password, date of birth, and security question. It is impossible to create a new ID with an email address you used previously for Apple account. You can make a new email address if necessary.
Just like in most of the signup process, you will have to enter the password twice.
Step 9: The next step is choosing the payment method. You have to choose None here.
Once you select the same, you need to enter the billing address. Make sure it matches with the country or region you selected at first.
Step 10: There you go! You now have an Apple ID. But one step is remaining to be done to make it functional. You have to check your email (the one you provided) inbox for a mail from Apple. And, click on the Verify link in it.
That’s all. You can now log into app store or any Apple service using the email address and the password you provided. In case you want to download any paid app from the store, you will have to update the payment details once prompted.

Step 3: Most probably, you need to choose your country. Scroll down to the bottom and select your country from the bottom-right corner of the screen.
Step 4: Now search for any free app on the store and click on the Free button. You can literally choose any app. If you go with an unwanted app, you can uninstall it after creating the ID.
Step 5: You will get a new wizard to log into your Apple account. To the left, you can see a blue Create Apple ID button, can’t you? Click on the same.
Step 6: You have to choose Continue next. Then, Agree to the terms and conditions. Once after the agreement, you should enter your details like email address, password, etc.
