Hi everybody,

I since changed my Apple ID through iTunes. However, my iPhone is still registered under the old ID.

I tried changing the new Apple ID on iPhone, by syncing iPhone, while signed in on iTunes. Still no luck.

Question: Anybody know how to sync a new Apple ID to use with iPhone?


All suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    What do you mean by "no luck" and "can't sync"?

    When you try to sync, what happens? Error message? Apps don't move over?

    You did it right. You sign into iTunes with new Apple ID and then sync iPhone to iTunes. What are you seeing that leads you to believe it did not happen?

    I am seeing my old Apple ID still displayed in iPhone on the iTunes & Apps store login.

    My old Apple ID is still displayed on the iPhone. It won't change. Therefore, I can't login to iTunes Apps or the store leaving my iPhone deprived of updates.

    When I login on iPhone the error message: "the password you entered is incorrect"

    In fact the Apple ID itself is incorrect and I cannot change it.

    I'm having the same problem. I have a bunch of apps that were acquired under an apple ID that I didnt like the name of (I know, lame, but true)...So I changed the ID name on the account, and now the phone keeps trying to update apps under the old name. Its the same account, with a new name. I put in the password and it tells me that the password is wrong.
