How To Change Apple ID To Have @iCloud or @Me Address
If your Apple ID has a third-party email address, then you can now change it to add one of Apple’s domains on it. So instead of having @gmail or @yahoo based Apple ID, you can change it to have @icloud.com, @me.com or @mac.com. Changing your Apple ID to an Apple domain will make it easier for you to remember it, and frankly it just looks better.
Before you start changing your Apple ID with third-party email to an Apple email address, make sure you sign out of all devices. So if you are using this particular Apple ID on your iOS devices or are logged into iCloud web app, then it is a good idea to sign out first. You can remain signed in on the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch that you are using to change the Apple ID’s address.
Using your computer
You can use your computer or any device with a web browser to change the address of your Apple ID.
