Can I change my Apple ID email address to an email address that is already associated with another Apple ID?
No, you cannot. Apple does not allow two Apple IDs to have the same email address. You will need to use a different email address that is not currently associated with an Apple ID.
What happens to my Apple ID if I change my email address?
Your Apple ID will stay the same, but your email address will be updated to the new email address that you provided.
What if I forget the password to my new email address?
If you forget the password to your new email address, you will need to reset the password with your email provider. Once you have reset your password, you can update your email address on your Apple ID.
