We are excited to announce that beginning next school year all SFUSD employees and students will have a district-issued Apple ID. This account will be accessed using the same username and password as one’s SFUSD Google account. Each of these Apple IDs will come with 200GB of free iCloud storage which will provide a more seamless and secure experience when using district-issued Apple devices.
If you did not previously create an Apple ID using your SFUSD email address or you do not use Apple devices, you can stop reading this announcement. More information about how to access your new, district-issued Apple ID will be shared towards the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year.
If you did previously create an Apple ID using your SFUSD email address, please read on:
- In the next few weeks, users with a conflicting @sfusd.edu Apple ID will receive an official email from firstname.lastname@example.org providing instructions on how to transfer your @sfusd.edu Apple ID to a different, non-district email address. You will need to change that specific Apple ID to a different, personal email address in order to avoid an account conflict.
- If you do not take action within 60 days of being notified by Apple, your existing @sfusd.edu Apple ID will automatically be changed to a new username that will look like PreviousUsernameemail@example.com. You can still transition this Apple-issued ‘temporary’ Apple ID to a personal Apple ID if you miss the initial, 60-day window.
- Note, any Apple ID changed from its @sfusd.edu email address will retain all of its existing settings, content, purchase history, data, and password. The only thing changing is the name of the account and email address associated with it.
If you have any questions or need assistance transitioning your @sfusd.edu Apple ID, please visit support.apple.com/en-us/HT209349, contact Apple by phone at (800) APL–CARE (800–275–2273), or submit an SFUSD Help Desk ticket.
If you have immediate concerns, questions, or think you might need additional support, please fill out the AppleID for Staff Feedback Form.
