If you got a new Apple product over the holidays, then you might need to set up an Apple ID Account. When using any form of Apple product (Macs, iPads, iPhones, etc.) you need to have an Apple ID to get apps and pretty much do anything there is on an apple product.
To set up an Apple ID Account, navigate to Settings and select iCloud. If you are logged in to your Apple Account then your account information will be hear. If not, there will be a login screen. At the bottom of the screen is an option for creating an account.
When you select “Create a new Apple ID,” it will ask for your birthday first. Then input your email address or create a new iCloud address. Then set up your password, pick security questions, and decide if you want to receive Apple News. Lastly read and accept the Terms and Conditions. Congrats, you have an Apple ID, and you are logged in!
