As promised When I made the guide on How to Make an Apple ID in iTunes, here is a guide on How To Make An Apple on Your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
This is a FREE apple ID, meaning it will have no credit card details.
[UPDATE]: If you know how to make an apple ID, but not able to get the “None” option when it asks for your payment method, please see step 3 and 4.
For this you will need the following:
- An iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad
- Internet connection or WiFi connection
- An Email account that is not already registered with Apple
- A physical Address
If you don’t already have an email account, or you would like a separate email account, you can make a Gmail account, as I will do for the purpose of this tutorial... Read More
Not everyone has a Microsoft Exchange, Gmail, Yahoo, AoL, Hotmail or MobileMe email account. It’s for this reason then when setting up an email account on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, that there is an ‘Other” option. Some companies and people will have to use this step to set up an email account as I have had to do for my work.
Now, setting up an email account manually is pretty easy and sometimes you’re lucky enough that when you type the details in, on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, that it picks up the settings automatically and BOOM you have your email account set up. In most cases, you will have to go find your settings for your email. This means speaking to your IT people/mail administrator, or checking on your email program like Microsoft Outlook, Thunderbird or something like ... Read More
Up to now, you should have at least one Apple ID. Or, if you have a second one, thanks to the help of Creating a USA or UK iTunes Account, you may have more than one Apple iTunes Account. As I mentioned some of the benefits of having an account in the US or UK, there is a slight finicky thing about it. This is the AppStore itself on your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or iTunes can show that you have updates of apps, but wont show you which apps have updates available.
To be able to see this, you will have to log out of the one account and back into the respective Apple ID for the specific country to be able to update the apps. Maybe you aren’t concerned about that and just need some help on how to switch to your other Apple ID. Well, that’s what I intend on showing you how to do here.

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’ve been helping a few people recently with their Apple device and as a result, this morning, I decided to start a section to my blog dealing specifically with helping people with the issues that they may come across when using their iPhone’s, iPad’s or even in iTunes.
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
