What is an Apple ID and how do I create one?

Follow

An Apple ID is a combination of an email address and a password required to perform certain Apple related activities, such as purchasing/downloading apps from the App Store and using the iCloud.

When creating an Apple ID - which, in principle, you only have to do once - you need to enter your email address and choose a password. To actually use your Apple ID, you usually only need your password.
