How to change my Apple ID for iTunes & Support Communities

I currently have my personal domain email address as my Apple ID for iTunes, Apple Support Communities, and for iCloud (though I haven't setup a .me email address yet in iCloud).  I want to stop using my personal domain email address and create a .me address in iCloud that will be my only email address.  The problem is that I need to have a valid email address as my Apple ID in iTunes and I won't have it any longer once I switch email addresses to the new .me address I will create.
Before I do something wrong here, does anyone know how I can create a new .me address in iCloud, and then use that email address as my iTunes, Support Communities, and iCloud Apple ID?

Disregard my question...found out I don't need to do this.  Evidently I can't delete the post, even though there are no replies.

  • HT1311 Changed my apple ID for iTunes, but did not work for app updates.

    I followed the directions on my phone and successfully changed my apple ID for iTunes. But when I to update apps, the old ID still shows. How can I change my Apple ID so I can update my existing apps?

    Correct! The apps I had previously were downloaded using my husband's apple ID. We are now separated, and I would like to download updates under my OWN apple ID. I followed the instructions for changing my AppleID on my phone, and it works with iTunes downloads. Yet the old AppleID continues to show up for App updates/downloads. Can I change the apple ID for App updates? Or must I delete all the apps on my phone that were downloaded under HIS apple ID and then redownload them under my own ID?

    If you Create a NEW Apple ID...
    It should be Noted that anything Downloaded with a Particular Apple ID is tied to that Apple ID and Cannot be Merged or Transferred to a Different Apple ID

  • How I Change my Apple ID, On Itunes Match

    Im From Brazil, and because this I have two apple IDs (One to Brazilian Store and Oyher to US Store), and I have a Account using the Brazilian ID... How can I change the plan to US ID ????

    Well I'm feeling stupid because there's still something wrong here and now I'm not even sure what it is anymore.  My iCloud account had to be set up under because MobileMe was set up on
    I have tried deleting iCloud and re-entering it under @aol and it tells me "This Apple ID's email address cannot be verified.  Change your Apple ID's email address at to sign in to MobileMe."  If I go there I get instructions for changing my Apple ID password -- not e-mail address.  Plus, I'm no longer a MobileMe subscriber and don't care about signing into it.  Isn't there ANY WAY to get iCloud and iTunes under the same ID?
    Or are you saying it doesn't matter?

  • How to change an apple ID for iCloud only.

    I am trying to set up my kids iPods before Christmas morning.  I want their iPhones to have their own apple ID's for iCloud so we don't sync contacts, etc.  I want us to still share an ID for iTunes, which is set up.  Here is the question:
    Do I just.....Go into iCloud on the iPod and press "delete this account" and set up a new iCloud account? 
    Is it that simple, or will "deleting this account" delete the iCloud account associated with that apple ID on ALL devices including my IPad and IPhone?
    To be clear, I currently have the same apple ID for store and iCloud on all four devices.  All I want to do is for two iPods to have new, separate apple ID's for iCloud, without compromising the iCloud account on my iPhone and iPad.  I hope I can.....otherwise I have to take all of these devices back lol!

    Answer to my own question in case anyone else is wondering:
    If you have an iCloud account on a device and you would like to have your apple ID changed ....just go to settings>iCloud>delete this account....and then you can make a new iCloud account with a new apple ID for just that device!  This way you can have one apple ID shared for iTunes in order to share purchases, and then everyone can have their own iCloud account in order to keep messages, contacts, etc separate and personal. 

  • How to change the Apple ID for iPhotos and iMovies(The first ID used in the mac book)?

    I found that every time when I want to update the iphotos and imovies and the native apps in the mac book it is needed to use the first apple id that used for the first time you turn on the mac book.
    Since that id is not used now and i want to change it, any body knows how to change it?
    And although my current admin id has changed, but still when updating iphotos the very first id is needed...

    Correct.  Apps are Tied to the Apple ID that Purchased them...
    From Here
    I have multiple Apple IDs. Is there a way for me to merge them into a single Apple ID?
    Apple IDs cannot be merged. You should use your preferred Apple ID from now on, but you can still access your purchased items such as music, movies, or software using your other Apple IDs.

  • How to change my Apple ID for iCloud?

    Hey there,
    I have a simple enough question. When I originally signed up with Apple, I was using my Gmail account, so that became my Apple ID. However, I've been slowly migrating off of Gmail as I much prefer my new Apple email address ( For a whole host of reasons, including my disapproval of Google's latest turns in general, I'd rather move completely to than stay with Gmail.
    So, en bref, how do I go about changing my Apple ID? I'd rather be identified with my new and shiny (and sparkly) Apple email,, than Gmail.
    Is there any way to do that?
    I know I could just keep Gmail for the ID but I'd rather really just eventually wean myself off of it.
    Thanks for any info.

    Thank you for your reply
    I wonder why I can't use as my primary ID and address? That's a little foolish, if you ask me....

  • I just changed my apple password for iTunes.  Is it now the password for all apple related accounts, like mail, iCloud, etc.?

    When you change your Apple password, does the same password apply to itunes, mail, icloud etc. or do they all have separate passwords?

    It's the same account and password - iCloud, FaceTime, iMessage, Game Center, stores.
    You may need to log out of your account on any iOS devices that you have by tapping on the id in Settings > iTunes & App Store and then log back in with the updated password so as to 'refresh' the account on it, and for Cloud.
    There is an 'Update your settings for devices and services that need your Apple ID password' section on this page : (the page is about resetting a password, but the principle is the same)

  • How to change the apple id for daughter's icloud

    We bought our daughter an iphone last year. When we set the phone up for her we used my apple id for her icloud. Now she has her own apple id and would like to have her own icloud. When we go into the icloud settings on her phone it will not allow us to change her apple id. It looks like we can delete the account. If we do this will it delete my icloud account and information? Will this delete all her photos on her phone? Is there another way we can change the icloud apple id on her phone without deleting the account?

    Welcome to the Apple Community gothaupts.
    It won't affect your info on your devices. It will remove her photo stream photos but not her camera roll photos, yes you need to delete the account.

  • HT2204 I can't seem to change my apple ID for iTunes and apps on ios6. Means nothing is downloading, how do I do it?

    I've downloaded IOS 6 but I have ended up with the wrong apple ID on the apps store and iTunes, I can't seem to change it.  Can someone tell me how?

    I solved my own problem after reading a number of discussion threads, reset the iPad with the power off button (if that's what you call it), when I switched back on it had an error message on the updates but let me then change the account back to mine. 
    Mind you still not impressed with a few things on ios6 - mainly the shocking maps that miss most country towns or have the tags in the wrong places.  Can we have Google back please Apple?
