Apple iDevice April 15, 2017

Every iOS and macOS device must have an Apple ID associated with it. In addition to being used to log in to your devices, your Apple ID also allows you to sync data among all your devices using iCloud.

Here I show you how to create an Apple ID directly on your iOS device in iOS 10.3 and iOS 10.2.1 and earlier. I used my iPad as the example for both procedures, but the steps are the same on the iPhone as well.
