    Hello.
    I have an iPhone 5 and change its Apple ID but I can't install any Application or when I want to upgrade some Apps then it ask me the old Apple ID. How can I solve it?

    Thank you.

    If the apps were originally downloaded with the old Apple ID then you have to be logged in (or at least enter the password) for that ID.

    If they're free apps you should be able to delete them and re-install under the current Apple ID. Paid apps would have to be re-purchased.

    Try reset the phone completely,and set it up as "new iPhone" . Of course,to do that you need all old passwords and pin codes for the phone.

    I'm not surprised much by that as "how things work" seem to change monthly in the tech world...but I'm pretty sure that's not how it "used to" work.

    Someone who's dealt with this recently is going to have to chime in.

    You need old unlock code,and old Apple account password,could also be necessary to reset mail accounts with the right passwords.
