    Hi

    Just wondering if anyone has been able to change their apple ID to their new icloud email address yet, my icloud email is sending and receiving I just can't set it as my apple id yet?

    Thanks

    James

    Here's the flaw in that plan. Your apple ID is attached to your iCloud account. What happens if you have to reset your apple ID password (which happens to tons of people every day)? You will not be able to access your iCloud email in order to click on the reset password link.

    Granted this might not affect you or anybody else who keeps track of their passwords and security questions. But having an independent email address is an intentional safety feature to prevent the above scenario from happening.
