            Creating a Free Apple ID

            Apple requires an Apple ID in order to download apps through the App Store. Apple ID’s are free of charge and can be created without registering any form of payment. In order to create an Apple ID, you will need a valid email address and a secure password, which should be made available to other administrators.

            I. ON YOUR IPAD:

            You may create an Apple ID using your iPad. This is only possible if you have not already used an Apple ID on the device. 

            ⎯ Open the App Store.

            ⎯ Search for and choose any free app.

            ⎯ Tap Get next to the item, then tap again to get it.

            ⎯ When you’re asked to sign in with an Apple ID, tap Create New Apple ID.

            ⎯ Follow the onscreen instructions. When you’re asked for payment information, choose None.

            ⎯ After you enter all of the information required, you'll be asked to verify your Apple ID by email. You must verify your Apple ID before you can begin using it.

            II. ON YOUR MAC OR PC:

            You may create an Apple ID using your Mac or PC. You will need to have iTunes downloaded and installed on your computer.

            ⎯ Open iTunes, then go to the iTunes Store by clicking the iTunes Store button at the top of the window.

            ⎯ Scroll down and find the country flag in the lower-right corner of the window. If it's not the flag of the country where you live, click the flag and choose your country or region.

            ⎯ Visit the App Store, Music, TV Shows, or Books section of the store by clicking on one of the icons in the upper-left corner.

            ⎯ Download a free app, song, video, or book. To find free items, look in the right column of the window and click any link that includes the word "Free." When you find a free item, click Get beneath its icon.

            ⎯ When you're asked to sign in with an Apple ID, click Create Apple ID.

            ⎯ Follow the onscreen instructions. When you're asked for payment information, choose None as the payment type.

            ⎯ After you enter all of the information required, you'll be asked to verify your Apple ID by email. You must verify your Apple ID before you can begin using it.
