Apple ID will soon be called Apple Account. With the release of new operating systems this year (iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia), users’ access credentials will use the new name across all ecosystem services. The rebrand was announced by the company this Tuesday (11).

Even if changes are made, the credentials (username and password) remain the same and no action is required. Apple did not explain the reason for the change, but it may have been done to make the name more recognizable and understandable, as well as easier to translate into other languages.

“With the release of iOS 18, iPadOS 18, macOS Sequoia, and watchOS 11, Apple ID has been renamed to Apple Account and is based on the user’s existing credentials for a consistent sign-in experience across all Apple services and devices,” Apple explains.

The Apple ID name change was predicted months ago. Bloomberg analyst Mark Gurman said in February that the brand would be rebranded to make the platform more intuitive.
