Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your Apple ID question.

First, you can recover your Apple ID, given that it already exists, by going to this page:

https://iforgot.apple.com/appleid#!&section=appleid

and follow the process it recommends, to find your Apple ID.

Then with your Apple ID, you go to this page and follow its process, to recover your Apple ID's password:

https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/appleid

and enter your Apple ID there, and then click on 'Continue'.

Do that, in those 2 steps, and you should be able to recover your Apple ID, and its password, both.
If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated! Thank you.
(If you need more info, or have any comments, use Reply To Expert to respond.)
