How to change your email on iCloud

How do u change your email address on iCloud?

My understanding is that to change your Primary Email so that it links with your Apple ID (assuming this is what you intend to do), you have to establish it in here first

But sarcaster330 is right.  Apple is currently preventing Apple ID text strings with the @me.com domain.  Only accepting 3rd party domain accounts as Apple IDs.   It is a policy that frankly defies logic/common sense and that I hope Apple will soon overcome.   In other words, many of us are demanding that our Apple ID = our Primary Email which for many of us is now an @me.com account.

    You can't change the main email address belonging to your iCloud account. You would have to create an entirely new iCloud account from scratch.
    However a better alternative is to create an 'email alias'. You can have up to three of these - they are additional addresses (not accounts) which deliver into the sam inbox as your main address. Please see:
    http://help.apple.com/icloud/#mm6b1a490a
    Note that new aliases will be @icloud.com. not @me.com.

    Hi, I have just changed my email address and password, I thought I was successful in changing my details but haven't,can anyone help please

    Manage your Apple ID primary, rescue, alternate, and notification email addresses - Apple Support explains the difference between Alternate and Rescue Addresses and the "necessity" for a Rescue Address.
    I fall into the category of not needing one (only two security questions in the challenge), so my "Forgot your answers?" link to send the email sends to my ALTERNATE address.
    I do not know the criteria for 2 or 3 security questions.

    how do you change your (mac/me/icloud) email address

    You cannot change an iCloud email address unless you create a new iCloud account.  You can, however, create an email alias, which is an alternate email address that will receive incoming email in your existing iCloud email inbox.  To do this, see http://support.apple.com/kb/PH2622.  Just keep in mind that once you creat an alias, you can't later use this to create a new iCloud account or move it to another account, even if you delete the alias.

  • HT204053 How do i change my email on icloud

    Please help i cant figure out how to change my email on i cloud

    What do you want to change exactly? The email address which is connected to your iCloud account (Gmail, Outlook etc)? If yes, then sign in here (https://appleid.apple.com/) and change your email address. If you want to change your primary @icloud.com address, then I am sorry to tell you that you cannot do that. If you want to add an additional @icloud.com email alias, then sign in on www.icloud.com (only possible on a Mac and PC) via a web browser, open Mail, Preferences and add your preferred alias.

    I need to know how to change my email on iCloud

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    If you mean your Apple ID, then you can only change it if it isn't an iCloud email address, you would do this at My Apple ID .
    You can however create aliases for your iCloud email address at iCloud.com > mail.

    You can change the non-Apple address which forms your ID to another non-Apple address at http://appleid.apple.com . However you cannot make your @icloud.com address into your ID address.

    When first registering with iCloud at the Apple store I had to provide a non-Apple email. How do I now change that email on iCloud?

    Your iCloud login is an Apple ID, and if you go to http://appleid.apple.com you can change the ID to another non-Apple email address that has never been associated with an Apple ID. You cannot change it to your @icloud.com address.

  • How can I change my email on iCloud that is not verified yet

    I can't change my email on iCloud and the email on iCloud is not verified

    If the old ID is yours, and if your new ID was created by editing the details of this old ID (rather than being an entirely new ID), go to https://appleid.apple.com, click Manage my Apple ID and sign in with your current iCloud ID.  Click edit next to the primary email account, change it back to your old email address and save the change.  Then edit the name of the account to change it back to your old email address.  You can now use your current password to turn off Find My iDevice, even though it prompts you for the password for your old account ID. Then save any photo stream photos that you wish to keep to your camera roll.  When finished go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account and choose Delete from My iDevice when prompted (your iCloud data will still be in iCloud).  Next, go back to https://appleid.apple.com and change your primary email address and iCloud ID name back to the way it was.  Now you can go to Settings>iCloud and sign in with your current iCloud ID and password.

    You won't be able to change it until you can answer 2 of your questions - you will need to contact iTunes Support / Apple to get the questions reset.
    Contacting Apple about account security : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5699
    When they've been reset you can then use the steps half-way down the page that you posted from to update your rescue email address for potential future use.
