Apple ID

An Apple ID is a user name you can use for everything you do with Apple. Shop the iTunes Store, log in to iMessage/FaceTime or iCloud, buy from the Apple Online Store, make a reservation at an Apple Retail Store, access support, and more.

If you use your Gustavus email address for your Apple ID, the password for your Apple ID WILL NOT change when you change you Gustavus email password.

You can create an Apple ID by going to or following the instructions below for creating an Apple ID in iTunes
