How to Recover Your iTunes Account ID

As an iPhone user, you must know the significance of iTunes account since a collection of titles are tied to your specific iTunes. You need to create an Apple ID before you can begin using the iTunes Store in the event that you want to purchase and download from the iTunes Store.

For the newest iTunes 11 (including iTunes 11.3), users like to update to enjoy the new miniplayer, improved song view and multi-disk albums. All the songs you have purchased in iTunes must be precious.

If you have forgotten your iTunes ID, it means you can't play DRM-protected music or otherwise access your account. For the DRM-protected songs, if you have not authorized your system to play them, iTunes will present you with a notice to log in to your account before it will play them.

While Apple offers a quick password recovery link in the authorization windows, this requires you first enter a valid corresponding Apple ID, so if you have forgotten your iTunes 11 account ID, then you may be at somewhat of a loss for what to enter. However, there is an easy way to look this up using the items you have already purchased.

As shown in this picture above, each song or movie you have purchased in iTunes will be tagged with your name and the account used, so you can use this information to look up your iTunes ID.

Note: In most case, your iTunes Store account name will be your email address. You may want to try signing your email address as your iTunes Store account name.
