    I'm planning to change the primary email address of my apple account and was wondering if it would affect my purchased apps. I'm currently using a @live.com address and I'm planning to change it to my aol.com addres. One of the reason I'm changing because I'm abandoning my outlook account since the microsoft spying thing turned me off from their service.

    Anyway, I'm now ready to change my email address but I'm a bit worried that I have to purchase every app again and I am not sure if I would still be required to use the @live.com or I will be using the @aol.com.

    It doesn't affect your previous purchases, it's just like changing passwords.

    Yes it would not affect your purchased app. i have done it and my only gripe is that my iCloud pop up every boot is about logging on to my old email.
