Sign in to the iTunes Store, Mac App Store, and iBooks Store on your Mac

On your Mac, use your Apple ID to sign in to the iTunes Store, Mac App Store, and iBooks Store.

About your Apple ID

Your Apple ID is the account that you use to access Apple services such as the App Store, Apple Music, iCloud, iMessage, FaceTime, and more. It includes the email address and password that you use to sign in, as well as all the contact, payment, and security details you'll use across Apple services.

If you’re not sure if you have an Apple ID, first try to find your Apple ID.

Using multiple Apple IDs might be confusing when you access purchased content or when you use certain Apple services. You only need one Apple ID.
