Yes, you can change your Apple ID email address without losing everything. Apple allows users to change the email address associated with their Apple ID to a new one. This process will not delete any of your purchases, app downloads, or other data associated with your Apple ID.

To change your Apple ID email address, you can follow these steps:

  • Go to the Apple ID account page ( and sign in with your current Apple ID.
  • In the Account section, click "Edit" next to the "Apple ID and primary email address" option.
  • Enter the new email address you want to link with your Apple ID and click "Continue."
  • Then, a verification code will sent to the new email address. Enter the code to verify it.
  • Once the new email address is verified, the primary email address for your Apple ID will be updated to the new one.

Note: Ensure that the email you want to use has been in existence for at least 30 days and is not associated with another Apple ID.

After changing your Apple ID email address, you will need to use the new email address to sign in to your Apple ID account and make purchases. Your existing data, purchases, and app downloads will remain accessible using the new email address.
