Apple to offer email addresses

Apple has revealed that it is starting to transition users away from the email addresses and Apple IDs available through MobileMe to new addresses. In its iOS 6 beta 3 change log, a portion of which was posted online by MacRumors, Apple says that “ email addresses are now available for iCloud mail users. Users signing up for new Apple IDs, or enabling Mail on their iCloud account for the first time, will automatically receive an email address instead of a email address. iCloud users with addresses that have been used with iOS 6 beta 3 will receive an email address that matches their address.” As noted in the report, Apple made a similar transition away from addresses when it moved from .Mac to MobileMe in 2008.
