    All apps, all paid and free apps include DRM protection which is tied to the iTunes account that was used to download the apps. Adding a new Apple ID does not transfer apps downloaded with another Apple ID to the new Apple ID. Apple IDs can't be merged and content downloaded with one Apple ID can't be transferred to another Apple ID.

     

    You will have to use the Apple ID and password to install app updates for apps that were downloaded with the Apple ID.
