It is essential for any iOS user to have an Apple ID, as without it you cannot use iPhone or iPad’s most important services. Those of you who have been trying to create an Apple ID through the normal method would have noticed that Apple requires users to enter a credit or debit card during the signup process.

Read on to learn how to create a free Apple ID without credit card on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
