Are you curious as to what you can do with an Apple ID even without an Apple device?

It is efficient to create an Apple ID to keep your Apple services and settings updated on all of your Apple devices. You can sync the services and settings in your App Store, Apple Music, iMessage, FaceTime, and many more. You can use the same Apple ID to sign in and use these services.

But did you know that you can create an Apple ID even without an Apple device? You just need to have an email address and a phone number that you can always access. This will be used to verify your identity any time you sign in on a new device or a new web session.

But what can you do with an Apple ID and how can you create an Apple ID without an Apple device? Do not worry, because, in this article, we will explain the benefits of creating an Apple ID and where you can use it. Moreover, we will guide you on how to create one.

Without further ado, let’s dive right in!

1. Benefits Of Having An Apple ID.

Having an Apple ID has many benefits, even if you are not using an Apple device. One of those benefits is having access to iCloud Drive. iCloud Drive is a cloud service that is similar to Google Drive. It can store your images, documents, presentations, spreadsheets, and many more.

Moreover, you can use any mobile device, tablet, or computer to access it. Plus, it lets you share your files and folders, which makes collaboration easier. You also get to have a free 5 GB of space in your iCloud Drive, but you can buy more space if needed. Just go to iCloud.com and sign in using your Apple ID.

Aside from having access to iCloud Drive, you can also use your Apple ID to sign in on sites or apps. You can benefit from its privacy because using an Apple ID lets you hide your email address. This will help you synchronize your credentials and prevent spamming the ‘Forgot password’ button on Spotify, Airbnb, eBay, Adobe, Reddit, Fiverr, and other sites or apps.

3. What You Cannot Do Without An Apple Device.
