Now I would like to use the iPhone's id on my Macbook.

How can I do?

Good afternoon c-l-audia,

Welcome to the Apple Support Communities!

I understand you have two different Apple ID accounts, and you want to use the one you currently are using on your iPhone 7 on your MacBook Air. Although you can do this, there are a few things to consider:
Did you create a new Apple ID account when you got your iPhone 7? Apple ID accounts can't be merged or combined, so if the Apple ID account on your MacBook Air contains all of your iTunes Store and App Store purchases, you will need to continue to sign in using that Apple ID in the iTunes Store to access your purchased media and update your apps.
Most people use just one Apple ID for both iTunes and iCloud services. But if you wish, you can use the Apple ID that you created for your iPhone for all of your iCloud features (contacts, calendars, notes, etc.) and for Messages and FaceTime. On your Mac you could sign in to iCloud using the same Apple ID account you use on your iPhone for iCloud features.
In either case, be sure to back up your iPhone and your MacBook Air before making any changes, and write down the Apple ID and the password for both accounts if you choose to keep them.
I'll include some basic information about Apple ID accounts below. Please reply back with more information regarding how you are using the current two accounts and we'll be happy to help you further.
Create and start using an Apple ID
Take care.
