Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

Is this the first time you are owning Apple products ?

Apple ID/iCloud ID would be your email address you registered with your device.

If you have never created an Apple ID before, then create one from here --> https://appleid.apple.com/account

If you already have an account and don't remember your Apple ID, then you can find it from

here --> https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/appleid#!&section=appleid

If you don't remember the password, then you have to reset the password. You can reset it from here (go to this website from your computer) --> https://iforgot.apple.com/

Go to the above website. Choose " I want to reset password", then use the "Get an Email" method to reset the Apple ID. Apple will send the reset instructions to the recovery email you setup with your Apple ID. It would be your email registered with Apple, like Gmail, Yahoo etc. Open your email and you will see the email from Apple. Open it and follow the instructions to reset the password.

If that didn't work, then go to this site again --> https://iforgot.apple.com/

This time use the "Answer Security Questions" and answer the security questions there to reset your password.

If you have any questions or would like any additional information, please don't hesitate to ask.
