No, it’s not genuine.

A lot of people have been receiving bogus SMS messages lately claiming their Apple ID has expired. See my write-up here for details: https://www.grahamcluley.com/2016/04/apple-sms-phishing/

The genuine Apple ID page (if you want to log in and check your account) is here: https://appleid.apple.com/

And if you want to enable two-step verification (which I would recommend for stronger security) then see the guide here: https://www.grahamcluley.com/2016/04/protect-apple-account/
