How to Create Apple ID Directly on iPhone

Apple-idRegistering an Apple ID is required to access pretty much every Apple service, such as the iTunes App Store, iCloud, iMessage and Apple Music. Without it, your iPhone or iPad doesn’t offer quite as many benefits compared to the competition, aside from the great build quality of course. Here’s a tutorial on how to create an Apple ID directly on your iPhone without the aid of an additional desktop or laptop computer.

How to create a new Apple ID directly on iPhone

Next, enter your birth date by scrolling the date wheel accordingly, then tap Next. Complete the subsequent step by entering your name and surname.

Then you can either opt for a freshly created email address, or use an existing address such as your gmail, if available. For the purposes of this tutorial, we will be sticking with the iCloud address. Simply enter your desired handle and toggle Apple’s newsletter on or off, depending on your preferences.
