To buy or download free items, such as movies and music, from iTunes or the App Store on your computer or iPhone 4S, you must open an iTunes account.


Open the iTunes app.

You can open iTunes by clicking its option on your computer’s Start menu in Windows or by clicking the iTunes item in the Mac Dock or Launchpad.


Click the Store tab to open the Store menu.

Choose Create Account from the menu that appears.


On the Welcome to the iTunes Store screen that appears, click Continue.

The Terms & Conditions screen appears.


Click to select the I Have Read and Agree to the iTunes Terms and Conditions check box and click the Continue button.

The Create iTunes Store Account (Apple ID) screen follows.


Fill in the information fields, click the last two check boxes to deselect them if you don’t want to receive e-mail from Apple, and then click the Continue button.

The Provide a Payment Method screen appears.


Enter your payment information and click the Continue button.

A screen appears, confirming that your account has been opened.


Click the Done button to return to the iTunes Store.

If you prefer not to leave your credit card info with Apple, buy an iTunes gift card and provide that as your payment information. You can replenish the card periodically through the Apple Store.
