For Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod)
Create an Apple ID here: https://appleid.apple.com/account#!&page=create
- In order to create an Apple ID, you need to have an existing email address. If you don't have one yet, you can create a free gmail account (or any email service of your choice). Once that is complete, you can then click the link above to sign up.
- You do not need to enter any payment details when creating an Apple ID from the web link.
For Android devices
Create a Gmail account here: https://accounts.google.com/SignUp?hl=en
- Unlike Apple IDs, a Gmail email is the same as your Google Account so this is just a one step process.
