    There's no benefit at all. You don't have to use your new address if you don't want to.


    It's purely there as an optional, additional address you can use or ignore as you wish. Obviously, now the service is called "iCloud" it makes sense to offer email addresses.


    Some people didn't like the address, now they can use if they want.
