How long does it take to unlock an Apple ID?

An Apple ID is used to activate or deactivate services such as iCloud, iTunes, iMessage and Find My iPhone with your Apple-issued credit card, and to access or delete data on an Apple device such as an iPhone or iPad.

You can also add or update an Apple ID from a Mac or iOS device.

An Apple ID comes in two flavors: one that's tied to a device, and another that's tied to a family. If you're using a Mac or iOS device to add or update your Apple ID, then the process should happen almost instantly. However, if you need to manage your account from a different device, it can take anywhere from several minutes to a few hours, depending on how your network performs.

When you first add or update an Apple ID, you'll be prompted to sign in using a combination of an email address and password, which is called a "login name" and "password." You don't have to use these, but they are required. If you haven't used these to log in to your iTunes account on another device in the last 30 days, then the login name and password you use now will be saved for future use.
