When you create an account with Apple, an email address gets assigned to your account. This is the email that you need to use each time you want to log-in to your iCloud account. This email address acts as the username for your account and you can use it wherever there is support for Apple accounts.

If you ever forget this email address, you will not be able to log-in to any further services that use this account. Fortunately, you can find this email address on your iOS device or on a locked iPhone or iPad device.

This guide covers the management of Apple ID email and the methods for how to find out in various situations. Read on to learn what those methods are.

What is Apple ID Email Address

An Apple ID email address is the email address that you use to create an account on the Apple website. When you buy a new Apple device like an iPhone, iPad, or Mac, you need to link your device with an Apple account. The created Apple account then becomes your primary email address for your entire iCloud account.

Here on where can use the account and the way to create, change and reset if you need.

Once you have created an iCloud account with your email address, you will probably want to find out what all the occasions are where you can use your Apple ID email. There are some services on your iOS device that require using this email address.

  • App Store: When you add your iCloud email address to your iOS device, the App Store then serves you with personalized suggestions that are possible by pulling data from your linked account. This way, the App Store knows what apps you have downloaded, what tools you have paid for, and so on.
  • Apple Music: If you have bought an Apple Music subscription, you can use your Apple ID email address to access it on your iOS device. This will then give you access to all your playlists, songs, and other features of the service.
