How to find your Apple ID
If you forgot your Apple ID, you can look it up. Just enter your first and last name, and the email address you used to create your Apple ID. If you have multiple Apple IDs, you’ll see all of them.
Apple ID accounts are usually associated with an email address. This could be an iCloud email address (for example,@icloud.com or @me.com), or a different email address that you created for your Apple ID when you first set it up. It could also be a mobile phone number that’s associated with your Apple ID account.
How to reset your Apple ID password
If you forgot your Apple ID password, you can reset it from Apple’s website. If you have two-factor authentication enabled for your Apple ID, you’ll need to enter a verification code along with your password.
Resetting your password is simple:
Visit Apple’s website and click on the “Forgot your Apple ID or password?” link.
Enter your Apple ID email address.
Select the “I need to reset my password” option and click Continue.
Choose how you want to reset your password: by email or by answering security questions.
Follow the instructions on the screen to finish resetting your password.
If you’re having trouble resetting your password, contact Apple Support for more help.

How to delete your Apple ID
If you’re interested in deleting your Apple ID, there are a few things you should know. For starters, this is a permanent process – once you delete your ID, you can’t get it back. Secondly, deleting your ID will also delete all of the data associated with it, including any iCloud data, iMessages, contacts, calendars, photos, and more. Finally, if you have any subscriptions or purchases through your Apple ID (such as music, movies, or apps), those will also be deleted.
With all that in mind, here’s how to delete your Apple ID:
1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
2. Tap on “iCloud.”
3. Tap on “Delete Account.”
4. Enter your password and tap “Delete.”
5. Confirm that you want to delete your account by tapping “Delete.”
And that’s it! Once you’ve completed these steps, your Apple ID will be permanently deleted.
