How to create an iCloud email account linked to a registered Apple ID

There are many email clients on the market, so it can be difficult to choose which one is right for you. An iCloud email address might be right for you if you are committed to Apple and don’t mind data being sold to advertisers or third parties.

This account is free and connected to your Apple ID. It is also included in the 5GB of data that you are allowed. Your iCloud email account is for personal use only. It has all the same features as other email clients. Sending limits to safeguard your account from spamming while you’re granted access to the account using the Apple Mail app or visiting the iCloud website.
