How To Set Up Your Apple ID

To get your show on Apple Podcasts, you will need to have an Apple ID. For the best security, it’s best to have a separate Apple ID for your podcast, rather than using your personal one. Here’s how to set up a new Apple ID:

  1. Head over to the Apple ID login
  2. Click “Create Your Apple ID” in the top right corner.
  3. Follow the instructions. Pro Tip - Create a Google email for your podcast and use that as the email associated with your show’s Apple ID. 
  4. Once your Apple ID is created, activate it within iTunes.
