    Hey MR is there a way to change your apple id email address? I mean i know you can, but is there a way to transfer purchases to that new email address?

    I dont want to use my current email address and want to use a new one, thats why.

    https://appleid.apple.com

    Log in and click "Edit" under Apple ID and Primary Email Address.

    I mean editing my primary email wouldnt transfer purchases. And adding another email to associate with my current email only makes it the contact and communication email.

    I want to know a way I can use another ID as my primary but at the same time have all the purchases of the old one - transfer purchases

    Contact Apple and ask? I don't think there is an easy way to do this.

    Thanks anyways. Found out the only way would be to merge IDs, but Apple does not permit that.
