    Hi all,

    on my iPhone 4S, I used to let my friends use their Apple ID to check balances and purchases and other things; I NEVER knew their password. However, now, with any interaction with the App Store, it comes up with 'Enter Apple ID password for xyz@icloud.com'. I click cancel. Then almost the same thing comes up: 'Enter Apple ID password for abc@gmail.com'. I click cancel. Then it comes up again for some other Apple ID. This will happen about five times in total.

    How can I delete these Apple IDs from the phone's memory?

    Thanks!

    Did your friends download any apps that could be linked to their id? Songs or other iTunes content?

    I don't think so, but it is possible.

    Do you have iTunes Store content set to auto-download?

    It could be that your phone is still has in cache someone else's Apple ID, so it keeps prompting you to enter an Apple ID, so it can auto download apps associated to the cached ID.

    Apple ID mix up?


    All purchases are attached to the Apple ID they were downloaded with so to prevent the other Apple IDs from popping up when trying to update that specific app you need to delete the app from your iPhone then download it so that it is attached to your Apple ID.
