How to register an American Apple ID for free and without a card

Apple provides access to its services and shops in many countries around the world, but their list, as well as the amount of content in each country is different. In Russia, Ukraine and other CIS countries you can freely buy applications, movies and music, use the majority of Apple services, but not all. The Apple Apple ID still has advantages over the regional ones. In this article we will look at them, and also tell you how to get an American account for free and use your Apple-devices to the maximum.

What is US Apple ID for?

Of course, the most important advantage of the US account is access to the American App Store, in which applications and games appear earlier, and the range is wider, including exclusives unavailable in our country. In addition, there are also iTunes Radio and other music services like Spotify, Rdio, not working in the territory of the Russian Federation (the restriction can be circumvented through a proxy, but you can not do without applications, and they are only in the US App Store). Also here you can include the possibility of free installation of paid applications for the iPhone, iPad and Mac through the service FreeMyApps, working only with the American App Store.

As for the purchase of other digital content – for example, music and movies – then the state Apple ID will be worse, as the prices in it are higher than in the same Russian. Consider this if you buy content in the iTunes Store.

In registration, in fact, there is nothing complicated and it can be easily produced both from a computer and directly from an iOS device. Which way will be more convenient for you – choose yourself, we will tell about both.
