I have two Apple IDs—my main one and the one for media and purchases that I’ve had since getting my first Apple product, the iPod Mini. This Apple ID for purchases is not an email address since Apple didn’t require this back then. Now whenever an OS upgrade comes through, it tells me that I should update this Apple ID to an email address.
Since Apple won’t let you merge Apple IDs so that my purchases are moved to my main one, is there a way to create another iCloud email address (not an alias of my main) that I can then enter to change this second one to, or do I have to go out and use a gmail account or something else?
Anyone else been through this process? Thanks!
