Apple has moved away from accounts that were specific to iTunes and now all Apple services fall under an umbrella Apple ID. The procedure to create your Apple ID is almost identical to the old procedure to create an iTunes account, only the name has been changed. Read here how to create an Apple ID on your computer or iDevice.

Steps

Method 1 of 3: With a computer

Create an iTunes Account Step 1

Step #1. Open iTunes

You can create an Apple ID directly from iTunes. Apple no longer uses accounts specifically for iTunes, so you'll need to create an Apple ID that will be used for all your Apple devices.
