Documentation

Configuration

https://developer.apple.com/account/resources/identifiers/list/serviceId

Options

The Apple Provider comes with a set of default options:

You can override any of the options to suit your own use case.

Generating a secret

Apple requires the client secret to be a JWT. To generate one, you can use the following script: https://bal.so/apple-gen-secret.

For more information, see the Apple docs

Then, you can paste the result into your .env.local file under APPLE_SECRET, so you can refer to it from your code:

import AppleProvider from "next-auth/providers/apple";
...
providers: [
AppleProvider({
clientId: process.env.APPLE_ID,
clientSecret: process.env.APPLE_SECRET
})
]
...
tip

The TeamID is located on the top right after logging in.

tip

The KeyID is located after you create the key. Look for it before you download the k8 file.

Testing on a development server

tip

Apple requires all sites to run HTTPS (including local development instances).

tip

Apple doesn't allow you to use localhost in domains or subdomains.

Host name resolution

Edit your host file and point your site to 127.0.0.1.

Linux/macOS

echo '127.0.0.1 dev.example.com' | sudo tee -a /etc/hosts

Windows (run PowerShell as administrator)

Add-Content -Path C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts -Value "127.0.0.1 dev.example.com" -Force

Create certificate

Create a directory certificates and add the certificate files localhost.key and localhost.crt, which you generate using OpenSSL:

Linux/macOS

openssl req -x509 -out localhost.crt -keyout localhost.key \
-newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -sha256 \
-subj "/CN=localhost" -extensions EXT -config <( \
printf "[dn]\nCN=localhost\n[req]\ndistinguished_name = dn\n[EXT]\nsubjectAltName=DNS:localhost\nkeyUsage=digitalSignature\nextendedKeyUsage=serverAuth")

Windows

The OpenSSL executable is distributed with Git for Windows. Once installed you will find the openssl.exe file in C:\Program Files\Git\mingw64\bin, which you can add to the system PATH environment variable if it’s not already done.

Add environment variable OPENSSL_CONF=C:\Program Files\Git\mingw64\ssl\openssl.cnf

 req -x509 -out localhost.crt -keyout localhost.key \
-newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -sha256 \
-subj "/CN=localhost"

Deploy to server

You can create a server.js in the root of your project and run it with node server.js to test Sign in with Apple integration locally:

const { createServer } = require("https")
const { parse } = require("url")
const next = require("next")
const fs = require("fs")

const dev = process.env.NODE_ENV !== "production"
const app = next({ dev })
const handle = app.getRequestHandler()

const httpsOptions = {
key: fs.readFileSync("./certificates/localhost.key"),
cert: fs.readFileSync("./certificates/localhost.crt"),
}

app.prepare().then(() => {
createServer(httpsOptions, (req, res) => {
const parsedUrl = parse(req.url, true)
handle(req, res, parsedUrl)
}).listen(3000, (err) => {
if (err) throw err
console.log("> Ready on https://localhost:3000")
})
})
