Switching your Apple ID to your iCloud email address

When creating an Apple ID, it’s very likely that you set up an Apple ID based on a third-party email address, such as a Gmail or Outlook address. You may want to consider switching your Apple ID to your iCloud email address, especially if the email address that you first used was your primary email, and you’ve considered using your iCloud email address as your new primary email.

Apple has a great support article on how to change your Apple ID to your iCloud ID,  and it comes with one very important notice: That you need to sign out of every device that’s associated with your Apple ID before you start.

Once you do this, I recommend that you have a recovery email address set on your account.
