You can sign in to iCloud using Apple account; you don’t need to create a separate account. We have a detailed article on ‘how to create Apple ID.’ In this post, we are going to guide you in creating a new @iCloud email account.
Making a free iCloud email account is an easy process and can be completed within a few minutes. But you can’t sign up for iCloud using PC or Android; you need to use either iOS or Mac OS.
Steps to iCloud Sign-Up
(If you don’t have previous Apple ID)
- Open ‘Settings’ app on your iPhone or Mac.
- Scroll down and tap on the option ‘iCloud’.
- At the bottom of the sign in page, there is ‘Create a new Apple ID’ option. Tap on that link.
- Enter your date of birth and full name.
- Select the option ‘Get a free iCloud email address’.
- Create the username you want. That will be your new Apple ID. If the username you want isn’t available, try another.
- Make a strong password. Mix uppercase & lowercase alphabets and numbers while creating the password.
- Select three security questions and answer them. These security questions will be helpful in resetting the password.
Congratulations, you’ve successfully created an iCloud email account.
