If you get a new email address or no longer have access to an old one, updating your Apple ID is important for protecting your account. Here’s how to update your Apple ID.
Changing the email address you use as your Apple ID isn’t difficult under the right circumstances. If your Apple ID is a third-party email address, such as gmail.com or outlook.com, you can choose another third-party address when changing your Apple ID. But if your Apple ID is an Apple email address, like icloud.com, you’re unlikely to be able to change your Apple ID at all. We’ll cover that scenario in more detail below.
Changing Your Apple ID
To get started, head to appleid.apple.com and sign in.
Next, click “Edit” in the “Account” section of the page.
Under your Apple ID, click “Change Apple ID.”
Type the email address you want to use as your new Apple ID, and then click “Continue.”
