MM Answers: How do I create an @icloud email for your Apple ID?

Sunday day of another tip from our column MM Answers!

The question of the day:

How to create an @icloud email for your Apple ID?

Why create an @icloud?

ICloud allows you to use an Apple ID with an @gmail, @hotmail or any email that has been used as your Apple ID. And the question: why create @ icloud?

Those who use emails from free providers, like the ones above, may see little reason to create another address, but for those who still have a paid email, they tend to benefit greatly from the change.

One more benefit of your new @icloud address: if you already have an @gmail account, for example, but would like to have an email for friends / family only.

Please note that this tip is valid only for those who have not yet used their Apple ID to create an @icloud email and that once created, it will not be possible to change the address (as you can now change your Apple ID from a Hotmail to a Gmail , for example). So think carefully before choosing.

How to create an @icloud email for your Apple ID

In your iGadget:

  1. Open Settings;
  2. Tap your name and then “iCloud”;
  3. Enable the option "Email";
  4. Tap on "Create";

    Create Email @iCloud

  5. Set your desired address with @ icloud;
  6. Confirm the address.

    Create iCloud Email

On your Mac:

  1. Open System Preferences;
  2. Click on iCloud;
  3. Check the option "Mail";

    System Preferences - iCloud

  4. Tap on "Create";
  5. Set your desired address with @ icloud;
  6. Confirm the address.

You can now use your new email @ icloud!
