How to Change Apple ID from Third-party to Apple Email Address

Changing Apple ID from any third-party email service like Gmail or Yahoo to iCloud is now possible. Let me show you how it works:

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.
