Question: Missing option 'Change Apple ID'

Hello guys!


I can't change my Apple ID email address because the option 'Change Apple ID' is missing.

I did everything according to this instructions: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202667


My Apple ID ends with @icloud.com and I want to change it to another @icloud.com address. And I have my new address in the 'Reachable At'.


I would be grateful for any help.

Answer:
Answer:

You are welcome. Is the other iCloud e-mail address an alias you created? I think that is why you can't change it to be the ID.


"You can’t use an alias to sign in to iCloud.com, and you can’t use an alias to create a separate Apple ID."

If necessary, there is a contact link.

From the article you posted a link for. Emphasis added by me.

"If your email address ends with @icloud.com, @me.com, or @mac.com, you can't change your Apple ID to a third-party email address. You also won't see Change Apple ID on your account page or the option to delete your email on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 10.3 or later."

Thanks Eric for your reply,


I'm trying to change my @icloud.com address to another @icloud.com and if I understood correctly, this is allowed:


"If your Apple ID email address ends with @icloud.com, @me.com, or @mac.com, you can only change your email address to another @icloud.com, @me.com, or @mac.com email that's already associated with your account."


And I'm trying to do this with my MacBook on this page: https://appleid.apple.com/account/manage.

As far as I know, since your Apple ID is an iCloud email address, there is no way to change it to another iCloud email address. If you want to pursue making the change, contact Apple ID Support using the links above for help. They can access your account, something the users like you who post here can't do.
