Sign in with your Apple ID

Your Apple ID is the account that you use to access all Apple services and make all of your devices work together seamlessly.

Icons for iCloud, App Store, Music, Messages, Photos, and FaceTime

Use the same Apple ID every time and everywhere that you sign in. If you use Apple services like the App Store, iCloud, iMessage, FaceTime, and more, then you already have an Apple ID and don't need to create a new one.

You can also use your Apple ID on some third-party devices to sign in to Apple apps or services, like Apple Music or the Apple TV app, or to shop online at apple.com. If you see a Sign in with Apple button on an app or website, you still use your existing Apple ID.

If you aren’t sure what your Apple ID is, you can look it up by entering the full name and email address associated with your Apple ID.* If you forgot your Apple ID or password, we can help you find it.

* If your mobile phone number is your Apple ID, you might not be able to look up your Apple ID.
 

Sign in when you set up your new device

When you turn on and set up your new iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac, you’ll see a message to sign in with your Apple ID. After you sign in, all of the Apple services on your device will set up automatically.

If you already set up your device

It's easy to sign in with your Apple ID even if you already set up your device. Find your device and follow the steps.

When you sign in to the App Store and other media services for the first time, you might need to add a credit card or other payment information to help secure your account. You can’t sign in to the App Store and other media services with more than one Apple ID at the same time, or update the content you buy with a different Apple ID. Depending on how you created your Apple ID, you might be prompted to upgrade to two-factor authentication on an eligible device.
