You might have forgotten your Apple ID (the account you use to sign in to all Apple services) or do you know if you even have one or need one? The steps outlined below will help you find your Apple ID :

#1 See if you’re already signed in with your Apple ID

You might already be signed in on one of your Apple devices. View the Apple ID that you’re using for Apple services.

#2 On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

Look for your Apple ID in your iCloud or iTunes & App Store settings.

#3 iCloud

  1.  Tap Settings > [your name]. On iOS 10.2 or earlier, tap Settings > iCloud.

#4 iTunes & App Stores

  1. Tap Settings > [your name] > iTunes & App Stores. On iOS 10.2 or earlier, tap Settings > iTunes & App Stores.

You can also try these other services:

  • Tap Settings > Accounts & Passwords. On iOS 10.3 or earlier, tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  • Tap Settings > Messages > Send & Receive.
  • Tap Settings > FaceTime. 
  • Tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars.

On your Mac

  • Go to Apple menu  > System Preferences, then click iCloud.
  • Go to Apple menu  > System Preferences > Internet Accounts, then look for accounts with iCloud.
  • Open iTunes, then choose Account > View My Account. If you’re signed in to iTunes with your Apple ID, you’ll see your account name and email address.
  • Open App Store, then select Store > View My Account.
  • Open iBooks, then select Store > View My Apple ID.
  • Open FaceTime, then select FaceTime > Preferences, then click Settings.
  • Open Messages, then select Messages > Preferences, then click Accounts.

#5 On your PC

  • Open iCloud for Windows.
  • Open iTunes, then choose Account > View My Account. If you’re signed in to iTunes with your Apple ID, you’ll see your account name and email address.

#6 On iCloud.com

Go to iCloud.com. If you’re already signed in to iCloud, click Settings. If you’re not signed in to iCloud, your Apple ID might prefill on the sign in screen.

#7 Check iTunes for previous purchases

If you previously bought something in the iTunes Store, you can see the account that you used.

If your Apple ID has changed since you made the purchase, then the name in File Info won’t work.

  1. Open iTunes.
  2. Click one of your purchases. You can find your purchases in your Library.
  3. Choose Edit > Get Info.
  4. Click the File tab.
  5. Go to purchased by. You can see the Apple ID that was used to buy the item

#8 Try a different email address

Usually, your Apple ID is your email address.* First, try signing in with all prior email addresses that you might have used as an Apple ID.

#9 Use your Apple ID account page

  1. Go to your Apple ID account page and click Forgot Apple ID or password.
  2. When you’re asked to enter your Apple ID, click Forgot Apple ID.
  3. Enter your first name, last name, and email address. If you enter the wrong email address, you can try again with a different one.
