    Hello guys,

    I need your help. I created a new apple ID on my iTunes. Then went to Settings, then Store to update my new Apple ID on my iPhone 4. Successful. Now when I open my App Store to download some new apps, it was still showing my old iTunes ID, even when Im downloading new apps.

    Please help. Tried as well resetting all my Settings on the phone. It was still using the old iTunes ID.

    To Remove AppID form AppStore:

    Go to AppStore > Featured > Scroll to bottom > Tap the account button > Sign Out and Sign back in with a different account.

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    Sign out on your phone and then sign in to the new ID.

    I have also changed my apple id but when I go to update old apps downloaded under my old apple id, it will not let me use my new one. I no longer know the password associated with my old apple id. Is there any way to get the update without having to purchase the app again?

    That's because you bought the apps using the other ID. You'll need to log in with the old ID. Try iForgot to recover your password.

    You cannot. You either need their password or you need to delete the app and download it with your ID
