Are you aware of the perks that a simple upgrade to iCloud+ will help you enjoy? The first and foremost one is the ability to set up custom email domains with iCloud Mail on your iPhone. To get an overview of this feature, Apple brings you the ‘personalize iCloud Mail with a custom email domain and share with family‘ note. If you happen to be a part of any Family Sharing Group, you will be enjoying the privilege of sharing the email domain with all the group members. With this, anyone from your Family Sharing Group will be able to proceed with the addition of a custom domain and decide whether to share it or not. However, not all users across the world will enjoy this custom domain feature. This feature comes with region restriction.
As you Start …
So, as you start here, you should look at a few things.
If you have an existing email address/s at a domain you wish to keep using, prepare a list of such addresses to help you configure them in iCloud. If you do not have any existing email addresses, create one once you are done adding the domain to the iCloud.
You must have two-factor authentication enabled for generating your Apple ID. You can simply turn on one at the Apple ID account website for those who don’t have it.
To set up a custom email domain, owning a primary iCloud Mail address is a must. Create one primary email address if you don’t have it.
Family Sharing must be setup up for those who wish to share the domain with their families. Each family member must also turn on the two-factor authentication and own a primary iCloud email address.
