    So, my contract job gave me an iPhone 6 with no Apple ID. They want me to create my own.

    Obviously not using my own Apple ID. Strange they want me to create my own with no company security.

    I used my I’d on my company phone. It was no biggie really. I just removed it off the phone when I turned it back in.

    Until recently I've used company supplied phones most of my life. Not sure what would stop you from using your own ID on the device, it can always be deleted. It's yours to use, may as well use it. You can always turn off apps such as private email etc, you don't want going to the device..

    Yes, creating your own Apple ID is typical. No need to worry.

    Honestly I’d be more concerned if they wanted me to use their Apple ID.

    This is standard. Apple only gives schools the ability to create Managed Apple IDs, and even then they are are limited. We end up telling teachers to create an Apple ID with their work email.

    It is common practice. Only way around it is for a company to use Apple’s DEP (device enrollment program) along with VPP (volume purchase program) for apps. This allows a company to distribute apps to your device without an Apple ID.

    Since many organizations still do not have this in place, your personal Apple ID is there so you can receive applications.

    My company offers various phones, and in the iPhone's case they don't give you an apple id, you're expected to use your own or create a new one.
