Hey Guys ~

I have posted this question every where and no one seems to know how to help me. I changed my email address at iTunes. Which is my ID, obviously. But it is all set up at itunes, and on my iPad too, via settings.

But ~

When I go to update my 11 updates, it pops up with my old ID/email, which no longer is operating.

So I can't update my apps or purchase from itunes through my iPad. Yes, I have gone to Settings, and signed out, signed back in, with NEW ID/email, and that is all good...


But updating my apps ~ still has my old email.

Help? Please?

    Do you mean you dated your actual AppleID to new address? You did not create a new iTunes account, correct?
    When you get the popup filled in with the previous AppleID, just change it to the updated ID.
    iTunes gets the iTunes info from the app/music and the iTunesID used to purchase is embedded in the file at time of purchase, so it will always do this.

    I am not sure what you mean by "dated your actual apple ID to new address" That makes no sense to me.

    Did you update your AppleID or did you create a new AppleID with a new emaill address?
    When I go to update my apps, you must log in to your account, and the OLD ID is still there.

    Go to the app store, click on Featured at the bottom, scroll all the way down, click on Account then sign out and sign in.

    You don't want to create a new one. You need to use the existing account that the apps you are trying to update, were purchased with.

    I'm having the same issue so from what I've read and experienced is you either have to delete and upload all those apps so you will be able to update them or, in my case, as this is a shared ipad, have the person who downloaded the apps type in their password so the apps can be updated.

    Is this correct?

    No need to delete anything. Just make sure you are logged into the iTunes or App store with the account used to purchase those apps.
    OPen iTune sor the App store and scroll to teh bottom of the page to see which account is signe din.
    have the person who downloaded the apps type in their password so the apps can be updated.

    Yes.
