Create an Apple ID from your computer
If you want to find out how to create an Apple ID, the first step you need to take is to connect to this page of the Apple website. Once this is done, you will immediately find yourself catapulted into the page with the (long) registration form for the service that you will have to fill in its entirety.
Then type your e-mail address in the field email@example.com (it will become your username to access Apple services) and the password you want to use for your account in the fields Password e Confirm password. The keyword must be eight or more characters long and must contain at least one capital letter and one number (ex. Password that's no good Password1 all right).
Then fill in the fields name, last name e date of birth by entering your personal details, then proceed to fill in the other sections of the form by choosing the three security questions and their answers which will allow you to recover your Apple ID password in case of loss.
Now you have to select your country from the appropriate menu located at the bottom and you must specify whether you intend to receive communications from Apple relating to products, services, software updates and so on and if you want to receive information relating to Apple Music, new apps and still more by leaving or removing the check mark from the relevant boxes located at the bottom.
Finally, enter the captcha security code in the text field at the bottom of the page and click the link Continue.
At this point, the most is done but to definitively activate your Apple account you must open your e-mail box (the one you indicated as Apple ID in the registration form), open the message received from Apple, take note of the code contained within it, type it in the appropriate spaces attached to the box Verify the email address to create your new Apple ID that is shown to you in browsers and click on the entry Verifica located at the bottom right. Mission accomplished!
If for any reason the Apple site that I have indicated above should not be reachable from your computer, you can try to create an Apple ID via iTunes, the popular media player from Apple for Windows and macOS. After installing the program (on Windows, on macOS it is already included "as standard"), you must select the option to access theiTunes Store from the left sidebar and click on the item for creating a new Apple ID.
If you run into any difficulties, you can find step-by-step instructions on how to complete your subscription in my guides on how to use iTunes and how to sign up for iTunes. In short, you are spoiled for choice and, in any case, it's child's play!
