Spurious e mails allegedly from Apple about such matters need to be watched for. Always check the full “from” address before opening .

If you are concerned the best thing to do is access your settings via System Preferences, NOT through any links that may have been provided, and update your information there. If that does not stop the notification consider running something like malwarebytes to see if it uncovers anything.

I have been running Macs, iPhones and iPads for over 5 years and never received a request to update my Apple ID.
