The password on my work Exchange email just changed, and for the life of me I can not figure out how to update my account within the iPhone.

Is the only option to delete and re-add? Seems like a huge miss here.

Settings -> Passwords & Accounts -> Select the Exchange account

I'm not seeing it in the latest iOS beta. Yes, I can select the account, but none of the options will prompt me for a password.

It wasn't until iOS detected that the password changed, that it's asking me for a new one; but by this point it's already too late - my account has already been locked out of corporate for 30 minutes for too many bad attempts.

Running Beta software on a primary device is a bad idea, and you didnt mention anywhere in your original post you were on 13.2 Beta. I'm on iOS 13.1.2 and what I posted previously works.

You tap the email address at the top, then enter the new password in the password field.
