    Apps (and any other download from the AppStore) are forever

    tied to the AppleID used to download them. AppleIDs cannot be

    combined or merged. Either continue to use the old AppleID to

    update the apps downloaded with it or delete those apps and

    download them with the new AppleID. If they are paid for apps,

    you will have to buy them with the new AppleID if you do not

    wish to continue using the old AppleID for updates.

    Why did you do that?


    What did you hope to gain by doing that?

    Same thing happened to me.  Apple MADE me change my Apple ID and password without reason.  It was after I got a new phone from warranty and they seemingly couldn't verify my identity, so I was forced to change it up.  Now I cant update my apps without deleting and redownloading.  Unfortunately, that seems to be the only way.  The only thing about it, is previous data from those apps will delete as well.
