To enroll in the Apple Developer Program and create a developer account, you’ll need both an Apple ID and a D-U-N-S number. Follow the instructions below to obtain both of these pieces for your organization.
If you do run into any issues, please first contact Apple directly for support, go here and choose Membership & Account. You can request a callback or submit questions by email.
Get your Apple ID
To begin, you’ll need an Apple ID associated with your organization. Apple also requires that all Apple IDs have set up two-factor authentication.
If you already have an Apple ID for your organization (with two-factor authentication enabled), you may skip this step.
Get Your D-U-N-S Number
A D-U-N-S number is a standard business identifier provided by Dun & Bradstreet. Follow the instructions below to check if your organization already has a D-U-N-S number. If you have one, it will email you your D-U-N-S number. If you don’t have one, it will allow you to submit a request. If a D-U-N-S request is necessary, you will receive an email with your D-U-N-S number within 1–2 weeks.
- Log in to Apple’s D-U-N-S look-up tool with your Apple ID
- Complete the look-up tool form to get your D-U-N-S number
How will I receive my D-U-N-S number?
After you request your D-U-N-S number, you will receive an email like this:
Tip! Although the confirmation says that you can’t use the D-U-N-S number for 14 days, you can proceed to the next step as soon as you receive this email. No need to wait!
