Hello natsume88,

Thanks for reaching out to the Apple Support Communities.

I see that you accidentally deleted your Apple ID email a few months ago, and now you can't reset your Apple ID password that you need to format your iPad. I'll be happy to help assist you with this.

If you don't have access to that email address anymore to reset your password, you may still be able to reset the password by answering your security questions. Please see this support article: If you forgot your Apple ID password , specifically:

Email, password, and security questions

  1. Go to your Apple ID account page and click "Forgot Apple ID or password." If asked to confirm your phone number, use steps for two-factor authentication instead.
  2. Enter your Apple ID. Did you forget your Apple ID?
  3. Select the option to reset your password, then choose Continue.
  4. Choose how to reset your password:

After you reset your password, you'll be asked to sign in again with your new password. You also might need to update your password in Settings on your devices.

Let me know if you have any questions.
