Manage Your Apple ID

I’d wager that many Mac users can’t explain what their Apple ID is. Is it the same thing as iCloud or different? Is it the sign in you use for iTunes or is that another account? The topic is confusing enough that we offer an entire book dedicated it—Glenn Fleishman’s Take Control of Your Apple ID. Catalina works to clarify the situation with the new Apple ID preference pane, which gathers up settings previously scattered across multiple preference panes and apps (Figure 133).
