How to create an Apple ID

If you currently have a personal Apple ID, you can use this for school purposes if you wish. If you would like to create a new Apple ID, without being tied to any credit card, you will need to create that Apple ID in the App Store or in the iTunes Store (not at the Apple ID website). Securely store the password, the answers to the security questions, and the rescue from the App Store or iTunes Store.

  1. You will need an email address that is NOT already associated with an Apple ID. For students, the school email address will not work for an Apple ID.
  2. Select a Free App to Download. Since you will be using the Canvas app for school, this one is recommended.
  3. At the login screen, select ‘Create New Apple ID’.
  4. Complete the information requested
  5. Select United States; click Next.
  6. Scroll to the bottom of statement and Agree.
  7. Enter email address and password.
  8. Answer security questions and enter rescue email address.
  9. Under Billing Information, be sure that NONE is selected.
  10. Enter your address in the next area; even though you are not entering credit card information, you still need to enter your address.
  11. Once all information has been entered, Apple will send a verification email to the address used to set up the account.
  12. Go to that email account, select the email from Apple and click on the ‘Verify’ link in the message. Enter your Apple ID login information on the screen that opens.
  13. Return to iTunes store; you will be prompted to login.
  14. Finish downloading app.
