Depending on the bean used, it can be 70% less acidic than hot brewed coffee. I had some gut issues after Afghanistan and was just experimenting with my diet. It also has more caffeine, so 1 cup is all I need in the morning.

As far as iced vs cold brew, iced is just hot coffee on ice. Cold brew never sees heat (which is what releases the acid from the bean). Cold brew is more concentrated due to the time it takes to brew in the fridge. Iced coffee also gets diluted as the ice melts, which can be good. An iced double shot of espresso in the afternoon can get you going...

I still drink hot coffee sometimes, just not in the morning. Never thought Id give it up.
