Apple ID

Updated: 06/16/2017 by Computer Hope

Apple ID is an all-in-one account for logging into various services provided by Apple. It works with many of their products including 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 its services, like product registering or customer support.
