Me, Myself & iCloud


I found myself in an uncomfortable situation when updating to iOS 5. iOS 5 gave me a new account but I was never happy using it for aesthetic reasons, it never got used and I remained with gmail. I later realised account was being offered in iOS 6 so when I got my iCloud mail account I wanted to use it on my iPhone 5, but the default is set to send from the account.

If you want to make your default account rather than using here’s how:

Settings > iCloud > Account > Advanced / Mail > Allow Sending From > ‘Switch Off Your Me Account’ - Done.
