In this article I’m going to show you how to create an Apple ID on iPhone 6 in a step by step guide, so stay with me! Creating Apple ID is one of the necessary things that you must do after purchasing one of the Apple products. Before starting to create our Apple ID, let’s see what Apple ID is and how beneficial it will be for us.
What is Apple ID and Why Should We Have One?
Apple ID is your Apple identification card which lets you benefit from all Apple products. In fact, your Apple ID saves all your activities and purchases (like apps or music) and gives you access to other parts of your device.
If you don’t have Apple ID, you won’t be able to use many Apple features such as download apps and access different Apple services like iCloud. Music services, Apple Store and iCloud are the most important sections that are accessible through Apple ID.
Important Security Note
Avoid giving your Apple ID’s password to anyone, and also, don’t use someone else’s Apple ID to purchase or use iTunes because all your activities such as your credit card’s information will be saved on that Apple ID and they will have access to it. In addition, if you activate iCloud service on two different devices, your files such as music and videos will be shared on both devices and someone else can access them too.
If you don’t know how to create Apple ID, don’t worry at all! I’m going to show you how to create your own Apple ID in the next couple of paragraphs.
How to Create an Apple ID on iPhone 6
in Only 10 Minutes
Follow the steps below to create your Apple ID. The steps can be done in iPhone 6, but the process is the same for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Open App Store on your iPhone.
Tap on Top Chart on bottom of the display and choose one of FREE apps. Then tap on the GET option. It’ll turn into Install when you’ve done it. You can also open one of FREE apps first and then tap GET on the top right side of the page.
Note: It’s better to pick up a FREE app when you’re creating your Apple ID because if you pick up a paid app or go to Settings to create your Apple ID, you’ll have to enter your credit/debit card information which may not be suitable for you at this stage.
After tapping on Install, you’ll be requested to choose between Use Exiting Apple ID and Create New Apple ID options. Tap on the second one “Create New Apple ID” and go to the next step.
In this section, you need to choose your country. Choose US (if you’re from the United States) and tap on Next.
Registration form will appear and you`ll need to enter your email address which you prefer to use as your Apple ID in the first field of the form. Then choose your password and enter it in Password field; please note that your password should be at least 8 characters and it must be a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters and numbers.
Then repeat your password in the Verify field.
In Security info section you’ll be asked to create security questions which will be used if you need to recover your password (if it’s been forgotten, for example). Actually, these questions can detect your identity, so it’s logical to write down these questions and answers and put it in a safe place because you may need it in future. You can choose any answers you like, and it’s not necessary to provide only real answers.
In Rescue Email section, you can enter your personal email address or an email address of a person that you trust. Of course, filling out this section is optional and you don’t have to this, but if you do, it’ll be very beneficial for you.
The most important advantage is that if you forget your password, you’ll be able to easily recover it through this email address, so it’s recommended to fill it out with a valid email address.
In Date Of Birth section, just enter your date of birth and go to the next part. There’re two other options at end of the form. If you activate them, Apple news and messages will be sent to your mailbox. If you prefer to not receive any messages from Apple, don’t activate these options. After filling out the form completely, tap on Next.
You’re requested to enter your debit/credit card information in this section. If you’re not comfortable with entering your bank card information, choose None to skip this step.
Also if you’ve purchased a gift card earlier, enter its code in the middle of the form, otherwise leave it blank.
Now you just need to enter your full address in Billing Address section and tap Next to create your Apple ID.
It’s done! Your Apple ID is created now and you just need to verify it through your mailbox. After completing all the steps, you`ll need to verify your Apple ID. You’ll receive an email from Apple which includes a text like shown below.
First tap on Verify now like it’s shown on the image below (40) and then a new page will open where you’ll be requested to enter your email address (Apple ID) and password. After that, tap Continue and then Done to finish the activation process. You’re done now; your Apple ID is activated and ready to use.

There’s no option to “Create New Apple ID” on my iphone6 plus when I get to step 3, only “sign in” or “Forgot Apple ID or Password?”. I don’t believe I was ever prompted to create an apple ID when I got my phone in the first place. So what now?
