Hello everyone, Rahul here from TechReviewProand welcome back to another episode.
If this is your first time here, please hitthe subscribe button and tap on the bell icon so that you never miss an important update.
Alright, now without any further delay, let’slearn how to change the country profile in App Store? First of all, open the App Store and thentap on your profile icon in the top right corner.
Then tap on your Apple ID, and this will openthe account settings for your Apple ID.
And if you tap Country or Region, this willprovide you an option to choose the country for your Apple ID.
Now, pay close attention here: Depending uponthe country you select here, it may ask you to verify phone number or enter a paymentmethod that belongs to the same country.
So if you don’t have a credit card thatbelongs to that country to which you want to change it, this might be a problem foryou.
But if you want to change the country withouta credit card then keep watching, because I have good news for you.
There are a few countries that don’t necessarilyrequire payment methods.
So play around with different countries tosee if it allows you to proceed without a credit card or debit card.
In the payment methods, select None, and thenenter the billing details.
You may simply search Google for the dummyaddress from any country and enter here.
By the way, I have also written a blog postthat you might want to check out for more information regarding this.
You’ll find the link to that in the videodescription below.
Alright! Once you enter these details, tap Next andyou will be fine.
This is the easiest method to change the countryprofile in the App Store.
But keep in mind, in order to change yourApp Store country profile this way, your Apple ID must not have any credit balance left oractive subscriptions, otherwise, this won’t work.
Therefore, I would recommend an even betteroption that doesn’t have all these limitations.
Simply go to Settings, and scroll down untilyou find Password & Accounts.
Once you find it, tap on that, and then AddAccount.
Here we are basically going to create a newApple ID with a different country, say the US as the country profile.
And if you are wondering why? Then keep watching, because I’ll tell youthat in the latter part of this video.
Tap iCloud and then tap here that says, Createa New Apple ID.
Now follow the on-screen instructions to createa new Apple ID.
Since I have already created a detailed step-by-stepvideo tutorial about how to create an Apple ID, so I’ll fast forward this to save yourtime.
In case you find something confusing, youmay watch that video again I have added the link in the description below.
Okay, once you have created a new Apple ID, simply open App Store again and sign out from your original Apple ID.
Now, if I sign in with the US-based AppleID, you’ll notice that the account balance has changed to the US Dollar.
And just to confirm, I’ll tap on my accountagain and then tap on the country/region.
Here as you can see, the US is set as thecountry.
So now, I can download any app that’s notavailable in my country but available in the App Store of the US.
And I highly recommend this second methodbecause now you have one primary Apple ID with your real country while another one availablefor changing country profile every now and then without any limitations.
And when you are done with downloading anyapp that wasn’t available, you may simply log out from this and sign in to your originalApple ID again.
And the good thing is: you won’t lose anypreviously purchased apps as well.
