(I'm equating iCloud account and Apple ID below ... I hope that makes sense)
- If I create an iCloud account / Apple ID with a given email address "[email protected]",
- And then I delete that account,
- Can I subsequently create a new account using the same email address?
I believe the answer is “no.” I created an iCloud account using my business email address. I believe (not 100% certain) that I subsequently deleted that account.
I recently got a new iPhone from work. They prefer I use an iCloud account tied to my business email address.
I tried using the “forgot password flow” but got the error: "This Apple ID is either not valid or not supported."
I tried creating a new account with my business email address but got the error: "This email is not available. Choose a different address."
Which leads me to believe an email address cannot be re-used for an iCloud account.
