This Apple ID has not yet been used in iTunes Store: Fix

While signing in to the iTunes Store using your Apple ID, it may throw up this error prompt “This Apple ID has not been used in the iTunes Store.” on the screen. There is nothing to worry about the error prompt, and you can fix it following these set of solutions.

The main reason why this prompt appears in the iTunes Store is the absence of a correct address in your Apple ID profile.

Step 1 – At first, open the iPhone Settings on your iPhone.

Step 2 – The Apple ID should be on the top of all the other Settings. So, open it up.
