How to Create An iCloud Email

An iCloud email account is free and allows you to sign into an Apple account with your Apple ID. In addition to giving you the ability to receive emails, your Apple ID gives you access to iTunes, Apple Podcasts, the Apple App Store, iCloud, iMessage and FaceTime. Your iCloud email address also includes payment and shipping information so that you can buy products from the Apple store, including apps, digital music, movies, books and Apple devices.

It's possible to set up an iCloud account with an email address that doesn't end with @icloud.com, but you may want to create an iCloud email account for your Apple ID, if you already have one, so that you can receive iCloud Mail.

If you aren't sure if you already have an Apple ID, you do not want to create a new one. To check, visit the Apple ID account page and select Forgot Apple ID or password.
