How to create Apple ID account without credit card

How to create Apple ID account without credit card

Although this is a pretty common issue and has been around for years now, still, others find it difficult to create an Apple ID or sign up for an Apple ID account without a credit card. Most Apple devices are usable without one but the need to create an Apple ID comes up whenever one attempts to download from the App Store app, iBooks app or iTunes Store app.

Others create Apple ID account, in addition to their existing account (or accounts) to download apps or contents that are not offered in their region. They accounts account using another location or country (e.g. UK or US) to bypass the said restriction.

The main problem for that is they cannot download apps without a credit card, hence, they have to provide a payment method with which they have to disclose their billing address—unless of course they know how to make free apple ID without credit card.

Here are some steps on how to make an Apple ID without a credit card:

  1. Open the iBooks app, iTunes Store app or the App Store app on an iPad, iPod touch or an iPhone.

  2. Choose any free book, video, song or app. Some tutorials suggest downloading a free content from the Top Charts. For now, it doesn’t matter whether you download it from the Top Charts or not, as long as it’s free. (Of course, you can always repeat the process and download a free content from the Top Charts if the steps outlined here failed to let you bypass the payment method).
  3. Tap the Get button twice to get the content.
  4. You will be prompted to sign in with an Apple ID. Simple tap Create New Apple ID.(Note: If you already have an Apple ID, and you’ve signed in to Apps Store, iBooks Store or iTunes Store using that ID, you can simply remove the payment method for that account first before starting the steps outlined here. You’d be asked to enter the payment method after you get a content from the stores).
  5. Follow the on screen instructions and supply the necessary information. In the billing information, select None at the bottom of the list provided.

  6. You will be prompted to verify you Apple ID account by email.
  7. An email will be sent to the email address you provided during sign up with the code for verification.
  8. After you have successfully verified your Apple ID, you’re now free to use it to download the content that you like.


I hope you find this tutorial on how to create a free Apple ID useful. You can now download apps without credit card. Enjoy!
