How to change Apple ID
To begin with, Apple ID is the email address you entered when registering with the App Store or iTunes Store. How to create one can be found in the article Register an Apple ID without a credit card. And you, for various reasons, may need to change it.
For instance. A friend registered your Apple ID on his mail, and you quarreled with him. Or the mail service that had Apple ID mail no longer works. For such cases, there is a procedure for changing Apple ID. Simple enough at first glance. But in the process of writing an article and checking all possible options for myself, I ran into a number of problems. And they decided only after an hour of communication with specialists from the Apple support service. So, let’s try to put everything on the shelves.
If you entered a new e-mail for Apple ID incorrectly
And what will happen if you have incorrectly entered the e-mail address of the new ID. Then the confirmation mail will come to a non-existent address and you will not be able to confirm it. At the same time, you will not be able to enter using the old ID.
If you know a new, unverified Apple ID, please log in using appleid.Apple.com.
You will see a window like this. Your mailing address has not been verified. Click on “Change” and enter the correct e-mail details.
After that, the procedure will be repeated with sending a confirmation letter to the specified mailing address.
And following the link from the letter, you will be taken to the Apple ID confirmation page.

Forgotten Apple ID
And what happens if you did not correctly enter the e-mail address of the new ID, and did not remember it. Well, they just made a mistake somewhere, but you don’t know where. This is exactly what happened to me when I wrote this article. This is where the ambush lies. Because the confirmation mail will be sent to a non-existent address and you will not be able to receive it.
You will no longer be able to log in using the old ID. And you don’t know the new one.
There is only one way to solve this problem:
Call Apple Support 7 495 5809557 ext 4. Monday through Friday 9 am to 7:45 pm.
They no longer have your old Apple ID in their database.
He disappears at the moment of the change. But it can be found through the central support service, which should be contacted by a specialist from Russia. It takes about 20 minutes, so use a landline phone or Skype. Then you will be asked to answer the security questions that are listed in your account. And if everything went well, they will tell you your new Apple ID. Knowing it, you can change the postal address, as described in the paragraph above.
How to Change Apple ID on iPhone or iPad
Therefore, I recommend using secret questions in your account that do not cause any doubts in your own mind. Also, link your device to your Apple ID by enabling Find My iPhone in iCloud. In this case, technical support specialists will be able to determine the account ownership by the number of your iPhone.
And further. Some issues are resolved only by calling the Call Center. With personal communication with the support service, you can even steal someone else’s Apple ID if you know what to say to the operator 🙂
Which ID can and cannot be changed?
One thing I want to say right off the bat is that if your primary Apple ID email address ends with @ iCloud.com, @ me.com, or @ mac.com, then those identifiers cannot be changed to a different email address.
Such IDs are created when registering with iCloud. Learn more about Apple accounts. Currently, you can only register with the @ iCloud.com domain. Me.com and mac.com addresses remain from the previous services and are no longer issued.
An account that cannot be changed is both good and bad:
- The bad news is that this is another mailbox and needs to be memorized. And beautiful names in iCloud.com domains are long gone.
- The good thing is that even if someone finds out your ID and password from him, he will not be able to take away your account, replacing the e-mail with his own. This is where any shared account works. We’ll talk about security settings later.
Well, if your ID does not end with @ iCloud.com, @ me.com, @ mac.com, then you have the right to change it.
Via App Store
You can change your Apple ID through the App Store. For this:
- Launch the App Store app.
- Click the Featured tab and scroll down the page. Click on the Button labeled Apple ID:
- 3. In the window that appears, select “Exit”. After that, click “Login”.
- Select “With an existing Apple ID” from the options provided. Enter the details of another Account.
How to register a second Apple ID
Let’s say you already have a Russian Apple ID. Now we will create a second, American Apple ID so that you can download applications from the American App Store.
Keep in mind that Apple does not welcome multiple accounts, and at some point simply will not let you register another free Apple ID, so do not get too carried away with this activity, that is, do not multiply accounts a lot and mindlessly.
Here I will describe the registration process in the US App Store without a credit card. So let’s get started.
There is an opinion among some iPad users that it is preferable to indicate states with no sales tax when registering (if you plan to make purchases with this Apple ID). These are states such as Florida or Delaware. Whether this is so. honestly I don’t know, so I will not advise anything.
Keep in mind that the zip code (analogous to our postal code) in America is five digits. For example, in Delaware it could be 19934, 19979, in Florida: 32654, 32615 and others. information about America’s zip codes can be found on the website http://usa-zip.ru/.
Why do you need an American Apple ID on iPad
In fact, the App Store differs slightly (or a lot) from country to country. Each country has different programs available for download, and the USA, for example, has the largest selection of free and paid iPad apps.
Some useful products, such as, for example, the cloudon application, are not available for Russian accounts, but at the same time they are quite available for US residents. Therefore, many owners of iPads register immediately after purchasing the device as residents of the states, or start, in addition to the first Russian account, a second, American, account.

We use a new Apple ID
In order to use your new American Apple ID, you need:
Pay attention to one important circumstance. You can update installed applications on iPad only with the AppleID with which it (this application) was installed.
That is, if, for example, you have the first 10 applications downloaded with the first Apple ID, and the next 20. with the second, then to update the first ten you will have to go to the App Store with the first Apple ID, and to update the next twenty. with a second Apple ID.
There are no such restrictions on the use of applications.

Removal through contacting the tech. support
This method is the only one that permanently deletes Apple ID, i.e. in the future you will not be able to restore it using the same e-mail. The other three methods only suspend the action, and do not delete the account, although in general the result is almost the same, nevertheless it is up to you to decide which one is best for your particular case.
So! What steps need to be taken to permanently and irrevocably remove? Let’s follow it below:
- In order to remove Apple ID, go to the official website in Support;
- In the form that opens, fill in the fields (“required”. required). We write the request in English. If knowledge of the language does not allow you to write a letter yourself, we create an appeal with the help of any online translator. Text created in this way, as a rule, is not a reason for refusal.
- in the line “Email address”. be sure to indicate the email from which the Apple ID was created.
- in the line “Subject”. we write about the desire to delete the account.
- in the line “Comment”. indicate the reasons for deletion.
- We send a message by clicking “Submit Suggestion”.
After a certain time (from a week to a month), a letter from the technical support service will be sent to the mail. It will contain a link confirming the deletion of the account. You need to go to it and delete your account without the ability to create a new one using your old mail.
Removing a working Apple ID
From the moment I created my Apple ID, I have not had any thoughts to delete it or create a new one. But since the people demand, it was decided to write this article and share their knowledge in this area.
Correcting data in iTunes settings
This manipulation is similar to the previous method, but some differences are worth noting. So:
- Open the iTunes Store app and go to your account;
- We select “Account Information”. All information about the account will appear in front of us. Depending on the goals pursued, the settings can be changed as you like.
- If we plan to use an existing mailbox without deleting an account, or create a new one with old data (bank card, name, surname, etc.), we simply change the current e-mail to another, real one (otherwise we will not be able to confirm the changes).
In addition, you can delete devices linked to your account in the settings. All at once, or each separately. To do this, in the “Account Information”, you must click the “Deauthorize All” button, or “Delete” opposite the name of the device, the binding of which we want to unlink.
Correcting e-mail on the Apple ID management page
If you want to get almost the same result, but now, you can use the method of “freezing” Apple ID by changing the mail name. Step by step it looks like this:
- We go to the official Apple website;
- We hammer “Apple ID” in the search engine;
- Click “Manage Apple ID”;
- We open an account (all information is located here: name, main address, alternative addresses in case the account password is lost);
- Change the current e-mail (for example, add three numbers between the first three letters). All three circles that appear during the change should be green.
- Save changes.
The Apple ID is now tied to a new, non-existent address. The old one can be used to create a new account. This five minute process demonstrates the following video.
Removing Apple ID directly from your device
This method allows you to quickly remove Apple ID from any device (for example, iPhone) and use a new one.
- Go to the home screen in “Settings”;
- Select “iTunes Store, App Store” in the settings;
- In this control panel, click the “Apple ID:”
- After a sign with four inscriptions pops up on the screen:
- View Apple ID (View)
- Sign out
- iForgot (iForgot)
- Choose “Exit”.
When we re-enter the same menu, we will see that the current Apple ID has been deleted, and we were able to enter another, or create a new one. I hope I was able to tell you about something new and useful! Good luck!
