Change the email address associated with your Apple ID
To remove your existing email address and add a new one to your Apple account, just make sure you have access to your new email address’s inbox, as you’ll need it to confirm the change.
Note: Apple will not allow you to use an iCloud.com address that was created in the last 30 days.
Then start by launching Settings on your iPhone. In Settings, select your name at the top.
On the “Apple ID” page, choose “Name, phone numbers, email.”
On the next page, next to the “Contactable at” heading, tap “Edit.” This will allow you to remove your linked email addresses.
Next to the email address you want to remove, tap the “-” (minus) sign. Then choose “Delete”.
Your iPhone will prompt you to choose another email account to use with your Apple ID. Select “Continue” on the prompt.
If prompted, enter your Apple ID login details.
On the “New Apple ID” page, enter your new email address and tap “Next.” Then go to your email inbox, copy the confirmation code received from Apple and enter it on your iPhone.
Your Apple ID now uses your newly specified email address. Be sure to update your login anywhere else you’re using Apple services.

Sign in to your iPhone with a different Apple ID
To use another Apple ID account on your iPhone, sign out of the current account, and then sign in again with your other ID’s sign-in details. You can then choose to merge your old Apple ID data left on your iPhone with your new ID, if you wish.
Start by launching Settings on your iPhone. In Settings, choose your name at the top.
On the “Apple ID” page, scroll down and select “Sign Out”.
If Find My is enabled on your iPhone, then at the “Apple ID Password” prompt, enter your account password and tap “Turn Off”. This will disable Find My on your device.
Next, select the category whose data you would like to keep locally on your phone. Tap “Sign Out” a few times and your account will be signed out on your iPhone.
To add your new account, open Settings on your iPhone and tap “Sign in to your iPhone.” Then enter your Apple ID login details. When asked if you want to merge your existing data with your new Apple ID, choose “Merge” or “Don’t Merge,” depending on what you want to do.
And that is. Your iPhone is now using your newly specified Apple ID account. Enjoy!
