How to get US iTunes Account outside the US

If you live outside of the United States, chances are you occasionally run across an app in the App Store that you want, but can't download due to its unavailability in your country. But that's trickier than it sounds as Apple is not eager to accept international PayPal accounts or credit cards. If you want to download some program from the US Apple Store, you need to get access to the US Apple Store. To get access to the US Apple store, you only change the address and nation of your Apple ID and then you are good to go.

US iTunes Account

What you need

  • Working PayPal account from any country in the world
  • Valid address from the United States
  • An alternate e-mail address that you have full access to

  3. Open the Apple Store and search for a free game, a free app or so. Press to download once you have found it.
