Question: Do you have to have an Apple ID to use iPhone
My son is thinking of getting an iPhone, but he doesn't have an Apple ID, and he isn't likely to get one, if he doesn't need one.
I have a few questions:
If he purchases an Apple iPhone, does he need an Apple ID to activate the phone?
If he doesn't sign up for an Apple ID and activate the phone through iTunes, can he still place/receive calls and text messages and surf the Internet using the Safari app?
Also if he doesn't activate the phone using a valid Apple ID, will he still get system updates to the phone?
