My apple id on the iPad is stuck with my old email address in spite  of updating it online, and syncing the iPad . I cannot buy any apps, as the email address is fixed and it won't accept my password. How can I change it?

iPad 2, iOS 6

    go to settings/itunes and app stores and sign out


    reboot ipad by pressing and holding the home and sleep/wake buttons at the same time until the apple logo appears on the screen, then let go.


    go to settings/itunes and app stores and then sign in with new credentials.

    Thanks Grumpygator -that was brilliant!  I didn't even have to reboot - I was able to change the address directly after signing out on the itunes app.


    Sorry, I don't know how to put the green tick in to give you your 10 points
