How to Create a New Apple ID on Your iPhone or iPad

How to Create a New Apple ID on Your iPhone or iPad
Every iOS and macOS device must have an Apple ID associated with it. In addition to being used to log in to your devices, your Apple ID also allows you to sync data among all your devices using iCloud.

Here I show you how to create an Apple ID directly on your iOS device in iOS 10.3 and iOS 10.2.1 and earlier. I used my iPad as the example for both procedures, but the steps are the same on the iPhone as well.

How to create a new Apple ID in iOS 10.3 or later

If you’ve updated your iOS device to 10.3, follow these steps to create a new Apple ID on your device. The procedure has changed since earlier versions of iOS.

You can also create a new Apple ID in a browser by clicking Create Your Apple ID on the Apple ID site. However, Apple requires a non-Apple email address to begin and then you can create and use an iCloud.com email address. When you use the Apple ID site to create a new Apple ID, the main email address associated with your Apple ID account is still the non-Apple email address. If you want to only use an iCloud email address for your Apple ID account, and not have any other non-Apple email address on your account, use the procedures in this article and tap “Get a free iCloud email address” on the Email Address screen. Then, the new iCloud email address will be the only address on your Apple ID account.
