TikTok download guide: How to create an Apple US ID

For many users going overseas, TikTok is an indispensable marketing platform, but as the overseas version of Douyin, TikTok cannot be downloaded in China. Therefore, for those merchants who want to use international applications, it becomes essential to have an Apple account in the US. The US account not only opens up a whole new content library, but also provides users with a wider range of application choices, including some exclusive applications and updates only available in the US market.


How to create an Apple ID for the US region

Required Information

  • US phone number (you can buy a card online/find a code receiving platform to receive the verification code)
  • US IP (must be turned on during the creation process)
  • U.S. address (you can generate one online)
  • Overseas credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express)/PayPal


Create a process

1. Go to Apple's official website and create a new Apple ID . (The page language can be Chinese or English)

Fill in the information as required, and note that the region and phone number need to be the United States .



2. After the telephone verification is successful, the system will send an email to the email address you just filled in, and then fill in the verification code in the email here.


3. After registration is completed, use this account to log in to the App Store on your phone. A prompt will appear after you enter your account and password. Follow the prompt to select Check Review. The region still needs to be selected as the United States, and agree to the next step.


Payment method: You can choose directly according to the actual situation. Please note that if the mobile network is not a US IP, the [None] option will not be displayed in the payment method, so it is best to do it in a US IP environment.

Of course, if you have a relevant bank card, you can also use the bank card to register directly!


Then fill in the relevant US address, which can be generated directly through online AI.


4. After a series of operations and verifications, you can successfully register for a US ID, and then go to the App Store to get TikTok.
