If you (staff only) have an Apple ID using your GCISD email address, it is actually a personal, consumer Apple ID account. Due to a change in the way our district Apple IDs are authenticated, you would have received multiple notices from Apple with instructions to change the primary address on your account before October 11.
Accessing your Apple ID after October 11
Now that the deadline has passed, if you didn't change your address with Apple it will have been changed for you to a temporary username.
Previous Apple ID username: email@example.com
Temporary Apple ID username: firstname.lastname@example.org
Password: No change
To change the temporary Apple ID username:
Sign out of all Apple services and devices that use your Apple ID.
- Go to appleid.apple.com and sign in with your temporary username. We recommend you do this on a computer, not a mobile device.
- In the Account section, click Edit.
- Under your Apple ID, click Change Apple ID.
- Enter the non-GCISD email address that you want to use.
- Click Continue.
Verify your new email
After you enter the email address that you want to use as your new Apple username, a verification code is sent to you at that address. Enter the verification code from the email into the fields provided and start using your updated Apple ID.
