How to create a US iTunes Account using your iPad or iPhone

This guide is for the latest version of iOS on an iPad or iPhone March 2013. Please update iTunes before starting to make sure everything looks the same.

  1. Make sure you are signed out of any App Store accounts in the Settings App

  2. Find a free app that is available in all app stores (Google Drive) and click on the free button.

  3. A Sign In form will pop up. Click the Create New Apple ID button.

  4. Choose United States for your country in the popup.

  5. Accept the terms and conditions in the popup.

  6. Fill out the form and make sure to enter your correct email address.

    • Select None as the payment type.

    • Fill in a billing address with your real name and a real, valid US physical address.

    • Click the Create Apple ID button.

    The easiest way to get a valid US address is to search for a popular store or fast food outlet in the US and use their address.

    Some US states charge taxes on digital purchases, so make sure to choose an address in one of these states to be safe: Florida, California, Nevada, or Delaware.

  8. Click the Verify Now link in the email that is sent to you.
