After putting the guide on “Creating a USA or UK iTunes Account” yesterday, I was asked to consider adding a guide on how to make an Apple ID. As basic as this may be, some people may need a quick reference guide on how to make an Apple ID.
Therefore, in this guide, I will be showing you how to make an Apple ID for general use, in your country of residence. This can be done in more than one way. So I will first be showing how to make an Apple ID from iTunes on your computer.
This is a FREE apple ID, meaning it will have no credit card details. Read More
So this is the first guide of many to come. In this “How to Make a USA or UK Apple ID/Account” guide I will show you how to make the accounts and give some reasons why these accounts are beneficial.
First lets start with why having an Apple ID for the UK or USA is beneficial. Apple currently boast having “over 500000 apps on the App Store.” However, not all the apps seem to be available to specific geographic regions. Because of this, having an account in either the UK or USA is of benefit, as their respective apps database seems to be of the largest available.
I will be making an account in the USA for purposes of demonstration, but the steps to create one for the UK are virtually the same, except for one or two mouse clicks. I will also be making an account without billing information. This means that there will be no credit card details needed for making this account. I will be honest and say that I have not made an account in the USA or UK with credit card detail, but I am sure If you wanted to add your billing information to the account to purchase apps, that you can just add it in.

I guess it all started back in the Summer of ’69. No no, that’s a joke. It started about 2 years ago when I bought myself my first Apple product. The phone 32GB 3GS. The original plan was that I wanted to go overseas to the UK and while I was there, I would buy myself a new phone. So I started researching the options and phones available on the market. My dad, dear old dad, often sitting next to me and supposed to be working while I researched the idea, would look over my shoulder to see what I was up to... Read More
Nearing the end of the year I look back on the year that’s passed and think about some of the highlights of the year and some of the things you hoped you’d forget, I found myself looking for some kind of “outlet” to keep myself busy and entertained. Not wanting to overdo things with certain friendships and find new ones that find that share similar likes too, I began to expand my circle of friends, often contacting and re-establishing past friendships to find things I enjoy… It was during this that I took up a couple new hobbies, if you want to call it that…
Well, it started just before I moved to Cape Town when I joined some friends to the local cable ski where I was first introduced to wakeboarding behind a cable and not a boat. Not knowing what to expect, I gave it a try... Read More
