How To Create an Apple iTunes Store Account Without Credit Card


If you are reading this guide than most probably you are setting up a new Apple iTunes account to download great games, apps, books, music, pod-casts or videos for your new Apple device but you either don’t have a credit card or you don’t want to update your credit card details in the iTunes Store for various reasons. Apple iTunes by default wont let you create an account without storing payment info if you try to register a new account by clicking on Create a new Apple ID . I will guide you step by step on how to create an Apple ID without needing to enter any payment details.
