Apple ID is the term used to refer to accounts on Apple's various online services, but it was previously rumored that it would become a simpler “Apple account” instead. Sunday's report said the same thing, making a change more likely.

In Bloomberg's “Power On” newsletter, Mark Gurman writes that the Apple Account name will replace the Apple ID in Apple software and websites until late 2024 at the earliest. The change will likely coincide with the launch of the next generation of Apple's operating system, including iOS 18.
