Here’s How to Create Apple ID Without Credit Card

The step-by-step guide will help you to create an Apple ID without a credit card.

So, you have finally switched to iOS or bought a new iPhone? Before you can download any app from App store, you’ll have to have an Apple ID user and pass.

What I have noticed that majority of iOS users are stuck at the payment method screen. Today, I will show how you can skip the payment method option and select “None” to skip credit card info step.

Earlier, Apple used to compel users to enter their Card info, but now that policy seemed to have changed. Maybe in the early days, it was part of Apple marketing strategy to promote paid apps as users having no payment method setup can only download free apps and hence would not bother about paid apps.

Before this method, any could easily make an Apple account on your PC or Mac using iTunes, but that method has stopped working. You can follow the latest working method below.

Here are the instructions for creating an app store account without a credit card on an iPhone. You can use the same approach to create an account on any device including iPad and iPod touch.

Step 1: You’ll need a valid Gmail or Hotmail email ID to create your account. Make sure you’ve already got one.

Step 2: Open app store on your iPhone.

Step 3: Select any random free app.

Step 4: Now tap the “Free” button to try to install the app. On the next screen, you’ll be asked to either sign into your account or create a new one. Tap the “Create New Apple ID” option.

Step 5: You can just follow the on-screen instructions to choose your country and agree to iTunes store terms and conditions.

Step 6: Next screen will ask you to enter your Email and password. Make sure you include an uppercase and a number in your password.

Step 7: Finally, Billing information step where most of you guys used to get stuck. Select “None” and enter rest of the information as shown in the screenshot below:

Step 8: Don’t forget to verify your email account. Open your email account, and you should have got an email verification link. Confirm, and you’re done. Cheers!

Alternatively, you can also create a new account using iCloud from Settings. Instead of opening the App Store app on your iPhone. Simply go to Phone Settings > iCloud. Previously you were downloading an app from App Store, here just choose to add an account and you’ll get the similar options to create a new account and follow the same exact steps as highlighted above.
