Changing the e-mail address associated with the Apple ID on the iPhone iPad [How to do it]
You need a valid email ID to create and manage your Apple ID. But unlike some other services, you can actually change the email ID you use for your Apple ID without losing your Apple data.
However, you must be careful. When you change your email ID that you use as your Apple ID username, youll have to re-login to all the services you use. This includes iTunes, App Store, iCloud, iCloud Mail and any other Apple service. Fortunately, changing the email ID associated with your Apple ID is easy.

Heres how to change the email address associated with your Apple ID on your iPhone iPad
- You must visit your Apple ID page. Visit https:/appleid.apple.com
- Click on “Manage your Apple ID”
- At the bottom right of the page, there will be a “Save changes” option. Click here to save your new email address.
- Open your email account and complete the verification process.
- Now, log in with your new email address
Note: If your current email address ends with @ icloud.com, @ me.com or @ mac.com, you cannot change or replace it. This option is only valid for another email address provided.
By changing your email address, you allow Apple emails to redirect to your new ID. This will not affect your previous conversation, i.e. previous e-mails to your previous e-mail address will not be displayed to your changed e-mail address. If there were any important exchanges via e-mails, you should transfer them manually; in case you close your old e-mail ID.
