Earlier today I had to restore my iPhone, and it screwed some stuff up.

 

An iCloud restore got most of it working, but a few things were wrong. My apps were out of order (not in any folders), and a couple other minor things. No big deal though.

 

After syncing my music back, my iPhone keeps asking for a few different Apple ID passwords...since it keeps suggesting a few different Apple IDs, I am led to believe that I have music from a few friends that I previously had authorized, but now I need to re-authorize them.

 

Honestly, I'd like to just get rid of those couple songs (I have too many for one or two to matter probably). How can I find a song that has a certain Apple ID? Either in iTunes or on my iPhone, I don't care.

 

Thanks!


iPhone 3GS, iOS 5, 32GB Black

    I am having the exact same issue. I restored my iPhone4S yesterday and it keeps asking me for my Wife's and Brother's Apple IDs. I have an album from my brother and my wife and I share most of our music. I would like to just delete any content that belongs to them.

     

    It is also making it so I can not update to iOS 5.0.1, saying "You can instal lthis update when your iPhone is finished restoring from the iCloud backup"

    Well, I think I found a solution. It's annoying, but it worked.

     

    I restored my phone and set it up as a new iPhone (instead of restoring from a backup). I have to re-enter all my settings, etc., so it takes a while, but I no longer have the Apple ID request popping up.

    I read up on some other forums. It looks like songs have your apple ID embeded in their meta data and when you restore you need to authorize them to download. Some people have solved this issue by replacing the information with their own and eventually the popups went away.

    Fixed!
    I have multiple IDs with Apple, and that wasn't a problem, signing in with those. However, I was getting a pop-up for a strange Apple ID that I didn't know.

    I had downloaded an app called Appatista before; it had some weird code that allowed me to create an icon for my blog (or any website). Not jailbroken by the way.

    Soo, I deleted that app/icon on the phone homescreen, rebooted, and voila. My problem is solved. I would suggest that if you have any weird apps or created some icons on your homescreens, start with removing those.

    Hope this helped someone. Was driving me nuts all day.

    What the phone is trying to do is download some music off the cloud that's tied to these other people. Click the iTunes App and if there is a number pending in your downloads this should be the issue.

    Also delete this music in your Music App. This is music that you added to your Library that was purchased by someone else not with your iPhone but it contains the info

    I also have had the Apple Store password prompt a lot recently and finally figured out that it's due to a pre-order that is pending.  Having the password allows you to go to "downloads" and swipe to delete the pre-order, if I chose to do so.
