Apple ID

Updated: 06/16/2017 by Computer Hope

An all-in-one account used to log in to various services provided by Apple, Apple ID works with many of their products such as iCloud, iWork, the iTunes store, and the Apple Store.

Any valid e-mail address can be used as an Apple ID. As of March 2013, Apple offers two-step verification as an optional security method for protecting the account. Users are allowed to have multiple Apple IDs, but they may not be merged.


An Apple ID is required for many of their services, like product registering or customer support.
