Is my online transaction safe?

The Apple Online Store uses industry-standard encryption to protect the confidentiality of the information you submit during checkout. When you submit order and payment information to us, we use 128-bit Extended Validation Secure Socket Layer (EV SSL) encryption to protect that information in transit. With SSL technology, the web address starts with "https://" instead of "http://" to indicate that your information is encrypted during transmission. With EV SSL, some browsers will display "Apple Inc." in the URL field during checkout to verify that you are transacting with Apple.

Apple's privacy protection standards are certified by TRUSTe. For more information, please review our Privacy Policy and Site Terms of Use

How can I save items and baskets for later?

The Apple Online Store makes it easy to keep thousands of products at your fingertips. Find something that interests you? Simply add it to your Saved Items.

Almost ready to place an order? Just build a Basket with the items you'd like to purchase, and save it for later. You can even share your Saved Basket with a friend or colleague via email.

Save a product to your Saved Items list

To keep track of products you are interested in purchasing later, save them to your Saved Items.

For many of our products, you can save an item while viewing the product details. Simply click the "Save" button with the folder icon.

You can also save an item after adding it to your Basket, by clicking the "Add to Basket" button. In the "Items in Your Order" section of the "Basket" page, click the "Move to saved items" link.

To view or edit your Saved Items list, in the "Account" drop-down menu at the top of the Apple Online Store, click the "Saved Items" link.

Sign in to save a Basket

You'll need to sign in with your Apple ID and password to save items or Baskets for later. Your Apple ID allows us to connect you with your saved items or Baskets when you return to the store. You won't need to enter billing or credit card information until you are ready to buy.

If you have questions about your Apple ID, please visit the Your Account section of online Help. If you do not have an Apple ID, you can create an Account in a few easy steps.

First, build your Basket:
