Setting Up An apple Email Account

  morddwyd 13:04 26 Oct 2019

I am not really at home on my iPad Pro and I have physical problems which make it difficult for me to stumble round!

How do I check if I have, or set up if I don't have,an Apple email account?

I have no problem accessing my Yahoo and Gmail accounts on the iPad but I want a clean, discrete, Apple account.

Create Apple id

Sorry, posted in error- will reply later, but in principle you use one of your e mails as user name and create a password as user id. They like to send a confirmation to a smartphone

Thanks, JB, I have confirmed that's what I have while setting, so I have a usable Apple ID, but how do I get an email address?

Here is a link, if you want one but you don’t have to have one to use iPads or I phones. You can use ICloud via your Apple ID linked to the appropriate e mail

If you already have an Apple ID it will be associated with an email address which you supplied when you set it up.

Thank you FE.

I do already have an Apple ID set up with an email address. I was looking to set up an iCpoud address.

I have already explored your Apple link pretty fully but came to the conclusion that the facility is no longer available.

However, I will explore your second link later on.
