How to change iCloud ID
Posted by: mjgkramer

I am setting up Yosemite on a new machine and accidentally entered the wrong ID when setting up iCloud. I cannot find any place to change it. Tried Googling and did not find out how. Would appreciate some help. Thanks in advance.

System preferences: iCloud.

C(-)ris - been there, tried that. You can change the password but not the iCloud ID. If I recall correctly on an iPhone you delete the account and create anew account with the desired ID. I do not see a place to do that on the Mac.

The sign out button on the lower left of the iCloud control panel in System Preferences?

I finally figured out that I could create a second admin account with the correct ID and then delete the incorrect account.

Meg's suggestion (and Chris' by inference) was the correct one.
