Creating an Apple ID With an iPad

District Recommended Method

No Credit Card Required!

There are various ways to create an Apple ID, however, if not done a certain way, a user will be prompted for their personal credit card information. Unless you are purchasing apps "out of pocket", you should not need to enter your credit card information when creating your district Apple ID. Please follow the steps below to ensure that you are not prompted for your credit card information.
