Little by little Apple continues to shed the last remnants of its old website by updating its design to a more modern one, in line with the general aesthetics of its products, especially its operating systems. And now it’s the turn of the Apple account management page , without any big show, but noticeably fresher and clearer from the screen to access its various sections.
The Apple Web ID allows us to manage the one account we need to access all the services on the block, from iCloud to the App Store, iTunes, or Messaging. In our iOS tutorial we talked about this extensively but in short, this is the place where you can change things like your email addresses, password, linked devices, payment method…
The new website unifies the different sections of the old one in a single page even easier to use

Among the most important for your security, it is worth reminding you that the two-step verification is one of the main lines of defense against any kind of attack that might try to access our data, so for your own good, activate it .
Please also note that you can manage your account without going through the website , either directly from System Preferences> iCloud> Account Details on your Mac or from Settings> iCloud and by clicking on your name and email on any iOS device.
Throughout 2015 we have seen how the Apple website has been renewed page by page, continuing the lines marked in 2014 by the pages of some of its latest products such as the Apple Watch, and continuing the integration of complete sections such as the technical support communities or more recently the online store itself.
But there is still work to be done . Apart from the forgotten product pages many of the pages in the “About Apple” section like Contact, Legal Information, Latest News or Press Information still keep the old design and while the pages linked to accounts like Manage Apple ID or iCloud.com are already updated, the “Apple Store Account” website also remains unchanged, which means for example that it is not responsive (adaptive web design). Time to time.
