The step-by-step guide will help you create an Apple ID without a credit card. So have you switched to iOS or bought a new iPhone? Before you can download an app from the App Store, you need an Apple ID and password.
What I noticed is that the majority of iOS users are stuck on the payment method screen. Today I will show how you can ignore the payment method option and select “None” to ignore the credit card information step.
