Shopping the Apple Online Store is even faster and easier if you have an account. Your account consists of your Apple ID and password. With it, you can easily save shopping bags, check the status of or change your orders, and more.
Benefits of an Apple ID
To create an Apple ID (typically your email address) or sign in using an existing Apple ID, click here. If you have a MobileMe account you can use that account for your Apple ID.
By creating and using an Apple ID, you can personalise your Apple Online Store(Opens in a new window) experience. You can save bag(s) until you’re ready to place an order, check the status of or change your order online, check Apple Gift Card balances, and much more.
Additionally, your Apple ID gives you access to other Apple resources including:
Registering your Apple products
Accessing support for your products from AppleCare
Sign in to Your Account to begin taking advantage of these features!
If you forgot your Apple ID, try your current email address. If that doesn't work, you can find your user name with our Apple ID recovery tool, iForgot(Opens in a new window). You can also visit the Your Apple ID Account FAQ page(Opens in a new window).
Find or Reset Password
If you forgot your password, you can easily recover or reset it using the iForgot tool. For security reasons, Apple cannot reset your password for you.
To protect yourself against unauthorised purchases to your credit card, do not give out your password to anyone.
Note: If you attempt to sign in to the Apple Online Store numerous times with the wrong password, you will see the following error: "This Apple ID has been disabled for security reasons." To reset your account, use the iForgot tool.
Manage Your Account
Can I have more than one Apple ID?
Yes, but it is not recommended as you will not be able to view your complete order history under the same Apple ID. Please note, Apple ID accounts cannot be merged.
