When you buy an Apple device, and it happens to be your first one, you are required to create an Apple ID. The catch is that, if you choose not to make one , you cannot make any purchases, or even download free apps from the app store. In short, its mandatory.
In case of Android and the google play account, all you need is a Gmail ID, and thats it. You can either choose to enter your credit card details at the time or even skip the step. But thats not the case in Apple devices. Off late, while creating your Apple ID, you are told to enter the Credit Card details as well. Now , if you own a credit card, its well and good. But what about Teens and small children who have just got their iPod or iPhone.
