The iTunes store is an online digital media store operated by Apple. It opened on April 28, 2003 and is considered to be the number one music vendor in the United States.

When creating an iTunes account, the first window to pop up is the terms of service. One should read first the conditions before agreeing to its terms and after one is amendable to what is stated, then click the “continue” button. The next part would be creating an Apple account.
This is the part where they would ask for personal information such as the email address. They would require the user to give a password and a verification question in case one forgets it in the future. The question should be familiar only to one’s self and it should be an easy answer only to the person asking it. After clearing one’s birthday one should pick the options whether one would receive special offers and information. After this, comes the credit card verification where certain information about the credit card should be given. As soon as this process is complete, then one can start availing of the wonderful items iTunes is offering.
