Finally, Apple lets you change your Apple ID from third-party services like Gmail or Yahoo to iCloud. Earlier, you could change your Apple ID email from one third-party provider to the other. However, there was no option to change it to an Apple domain.
One important thing you must know that you won't be allowed to change your Apple ID to other third-party email services once you have switched to an Apple domain. So, switch to @icloud.com, @me.com, and @mac.com only if you wish to remain with it permanently.
How to Switch Your Apple ID from a Third-party to Apple Email Address
Note: Make sure to sign out of “every Apple service and device that uses your Apple ID” before going on to change the email address associated with your account.
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your iOS device → Now, tap on your Name.
Step #2. Tap on Name, Phone Numbers, Email.
Step #3. Next, enter your password. Then, tap on the “Edit” button.
Step #4. Next up, you need to delete your current Apple ID and tap on “Continue.”
Step #5. Up next, you have to enter the Apple ID you wish to use. Then, tap on “Next.”
