I have recently changed my apple ID.

When I go the apps store to get updates, it brings up the window asking for for my apple ID password... For my old apple ID.  How do I change this?

Wen going through the settings it seems as though my new ID is recognized everywhere but here.

    You have to update the apps with the ID that was used to purchase those apps. They will always be tied to that ID. Did you try entering the password for that ID to see if the apps will update?


    If you want to sign into your new ID go to Settings>Store>Apple ID. Tap the old ID and sign out then sign in with the new one.

    Did you change your existing id or create a new one ? If you updated your existing id then try logging out of your account by tapping on the id in Settings > Store and then log back in and see if that refreshes it. If you created a new account then any content bought/downloaded will remain tied to that old account and it can't be copied or transferred to a new account - so only that old account will be able to download updates to its apps.
