    I recently changed my account information on my iMac to reflect a different email address from what I had been using. But when I go on my iPhone and buy or update an app, it still asks for my password for my old email address and thus, I cannot do anything. How do I get my iPhone to show the new email? I've tried syncing my iPhone to my iMac but it didn't do anything. Can anyone help?

    Sign out and then sign back in with the account you want to use.

    Yes, but say you want to keep all the history and purchases in your current account, but just change tour email address? Not open a whole new account.I have wondered this myself.

    Sign out of the app store. It's at the bottom of Featured.
