Apple does not allow us to schedule genius bar appointments without an Apple ID. For Apple, the purpose of having an Apple ID is to ensure that customer information and records are kept in the system. As a result, you cannot schedule a Genius Bar Appointment from a website or app if you do not have an Apple ID. Instead, you may try contacting the Apple Support overcall and requesting them to make an appointment on your behalf to determine if this works.

You will not be charged anything if you simply show up at the Genius Bar to exhibit or inquire about Apple products and services.
