What is an Apple ID?

An Apple Account/Apple ID lets you personalise your Apple on-line experience. Once you have created an Apple Account/Apple ID you will use it to access those Apple online resources which require you to identify yourself. With your Apple Account/Apple ID you can access your Apple Store order history and our Self Service website. Your Apple Account/Apple ID account is also used for iPhoto and iTunes.

What are the benefits of an Apple ID?

To create an Apple ID or sign in using an existing Apple ID, click here. If you have previously made purchases through the iTunes Store you can use this Apple ID.
