Question: Unlink apple ID

My sister and I don’t share apple IDs but my new phone keeps prompting her password. How do I stop this?

Were these for app updates? Were any of these apps downloaded under her Apple ID? If they were, Apps are forever tied to the ID they were downloaded under. If this is the case, either start a Family Sharing plan: Family Sharing - Apple Support


Or delete the apps and redownload/purchase then under your ID

If she purchased and downloaded an app to iTunes (before this capability was removed), and you synced to the same iTunes library then the app that she downloaded would be installed on your phone. It's one reason you need to have separate iTunes libraries (and separate user IDs) if you share a computer.
