I meant to say, it gives me the option to delete account (and presumably I could then set up a new iCloud account), but I am loth to do so without knowing if that will delete everything off my iPad and what is saved to apple ID and what is saved to iCloud.
I have just set myself up a new email account and have managed to transfer everything over and updated the email address for my Apple ID. Simple and easy.
I am now trying to change the email address relating to my iCloud account and for some reason I can't even work out how to log into the iCloud account section to change my email address and password. I hope that this is actually nice and simple and I am missing a really obvious trick.
I want to delete my old email address so need to move everything over to my new address and the drafted iCloud account is the only thing that won't change!
