iCloud Mail – Activate iCloud Email Address on iPhone

If you need an additional email address, you can easily create an iCloud email address on your iPhone. With an iCloud Mail account, you can check your mails on any Apple device as well as a Windows or Android system and they will always synchronize. You can also use an iCloud email address to create an email alias with your “[email protected]”-address if you want to use the mail address for newsletters or ads.

Activate iCloud Mail

Settings → Apple ID, iCloud, iTunes & App Store → iCloud → activate Mail

Activating iCloud Mail is quite easy, you can do it on your iPhone or iPad in a few steps. First, you open your “Settings” and tap on your Apple profile at the top “Apple ID, iCloud, iTunes & App Store”. Now tap on “iCloud” and activate the toggle next to “Mail”.

Now you have to create your iCloud Mail address by first hitting “Create” and entering a chosen iCloud email address, which you cannot change afterwards. However, you can create an alias for your iCloud Mail address.

Be aware: Your iCloud Mail alias can not be used to create a second Apple ID!

Now you can activate this email address for all of your Apple devices and also deactivate the toggle, if you do not want to use the email address anymore.

Delete iCloud Mail address

You cannot just delete your iCloud Mail address because Apple does not offer this service, but instead you can delete the Apple ID connected to your iCloud email address. You can also delete different iCloud Mail aliases.
