Every iPhone, iPad, Mac, or other applicable Apple devices must have a valid Apple ID linked to it to function. Your Apple ID contains your personal information and device settings and acts as the primary authentication for your Apple product. Without an authentic Apple ID, you'll be unable to use your iPad, iPhone, or Mac computer.

Upon creating an Apple ID, your profile image is pre-loaded with a placeholder icon containing your initials. To change it to something a little more personalized, use your iPhone/iPad, or do it via your iCloud account from your browser. Once you update your profile picture on a single device or via iCloud, it will reflect on all devices using that Apple ID.

In the following Visi guide, we're going to show how to change the profile image for your Apple ID using a devive and from your iCloud account.
