Apple ID is one account that glues you to Apple’s Mac, iOS and iCloud platform. A valid credit card used to be a requirement when you sign up to create an Apple ID. Thanks to iCloud.com, you can now create an Apple ID without a credit card number, and without the need to own a Mac or an iOS device.
iCloud.com allows you to use Apple’s apps and services with just a browser. In addition to basic apps such as Notes, Contacts, Calendar, Reminders, you can also use the web version of Pages, Numbers and Keynote for free.
The best part is you do not need to own an Apple device in order to sign up, and there is no credit card number required. The free account also comes with a 1GB of free cloud storage.
