When you first create an Apple ID, you will be asked to provide your credit card information. However, if you only want to download free Apps, books, and songs from iTunes, you may create an Apple ID without a credit card.
Create Apple ID Without Credit Card
Creating an Apple ID grants access to Apple’s vast ecosystem, which includes thousands of Apps, Music, Movies, Videos, Podcasts, and Books.
Naturally, Apple anticipates that users will want to link their Credit Card or another payment method to their Apple ID.
However, some users do not use Credit Cards or wish to link their Credit Card to their Apple ID. There is a workaround for such users that allows them to create an Apple ID without providing credit card information.
