Using an existing Apple ID with the iTunes Store, Mac App Store, and iBooks Store

You can use your Apple ID with the iTunes Store, Mac App Store, and iBooks Store. If you bought something at the Apple Store, registered your product online, or used the My Apple ID page, you already have an Apple ID.

Use your Apple ID with the iTunes Store

  1. Open the latest version of iTunes.
  2. Choose Store > Sign In.
  3. Enter your Apple ID and password and click Sign In.
  4. Click Review when asked to review your information.
  5. Enter your billing information.
  6. Click Continue after you enter your credit card and billing information. You can remove or edit your credit card information at any time. Learn more about updating your iTunes Store account information.

Use your Apple ID with the Mac App Store

  1. Open the Mac App Store.
  2. Choose Store > Sign In.
  3. Enter your Apple ID and password and click Sign In.

Use your Apple ID with the iBooks Store

  1. Open iBooks.
  2. Choose Store > Sign In.
  3. Enter your Apple ID and password and click Sign In.

Note: iBooks for Mac requires OS X Mavericks v10.9 or later.

Fix Apple ID issues

If you have an Apple ID and try to use the same email address to create a new one at the iTunes Store, you'll see a message that says, "The email address you entered is already being used for an Apple Account. If it is yours, you can cancel and Sign In using that Apple Account." If this happens, click Cancel and sign in using your Apple ID.

If you forgot your Apple ID password, go to the the Apple ID page for more help.
