How to Create iTunes Account without Credit Card to Get Free Apps

You don’t need a credit card to have an iTunes account to install free apps, to listen to podcasts or to download free stuff from the App Store. In this post, we cover just that: how to create an iTunes account without any credit card information.

In the past, you needed to have valid credit card information to create an iTunes account. In fact, when you typically create an Apple ID via iTunes, you’ve got to fill the credit information. However, what people often miss is that if you are downloading something for free (free apps, free books, etc.) from the iTunes Store/App Store, you have the option of skipping the credit information altogether.

Update: As pointed out by a reader, the None option no longer appears when you try to create a new iTunes account. Here’s the full story on creating a new Apple ID without a credit card.

 

To do this, you’ll need:

  • A Mac/PC with iTunes

That’s about it. You just proceed from here to get the account created without requiring any credit card information. Just remember to select ‘None.’

Alternatively, if you’re doing this via iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, you can follow the same process. Select ‘None’ in the credit card information portion, and you won’t be asked for it again.

But remember that you’ll need a valid credit card information (about the country of your selection in your account profile) when you purchase stuff from the App store / iTunes store.

You can also use the same method to remove credit card information in case you don’t want that to be dangling around as a risk factor. Just get into your account and choose ‘None’ where it asks for your credit card information. As simple as that.
