You can have an Apple ID but the Apple ID must be created by a parent or legal guardian. To use any of the Services, you must be at least 13 years old (or, for non-U.S. users, such older minimum age as may be required by applicable local law).

Here's Apple's guideline for minors:

But i told them i was born in 18/8/1975 and it still did't work


Pika that may be a matter of which country you are in. The date in the USA would be 8/18/1975. In Europe it is listed as 10/8/1075. You need to talk to a wider traveled Apple agent.


@mayer 10/8/1075 would mean that Pika Thái was witness to German King Henry IV beating the Saksen :-)


@oldturkey03 looks like I missed it by 900 years


@mayer that's still pretty close for the likes of us :-))
