    Do you create a new password every time you download an app?

    Go to Settings - iTunes & App Store. Tap the Apple ID there and select "Sign Out". Then sign in again with the same Apple ID.
    I hope this will help with your problem.

    Thank you but tried that and still says incorrect password. I must have about 6 passwords by now. I have a different password for Itunes and I am having trouble with it also.

    I am signed in to Itunes but it does not sync. The summary tab is unavailable. I have. De-authorised and re- authorised the computer and that worked once and now not so. Tried again but no luck. I window with the Apple logo nothing registers. It I ported a CD ok. Devices is greyed out.

    When it says incorrect password, this doesn't mean you have to create a new password every time.

    To access iTunes, App Store, iBooks Store and iTunes, you have to be logged in with the same Apple ID on iPad and iTunes on your computer, or else they won't work together.

    Try this:
    Go to this website: https://appleid.apple.com
    Select "Reset your password" and follow the instructions. Choose a password and write it down. It's important to remember capital letters and all the various signs you enter, like.,?!#...
    Answer your security questions, or verify using email or get a recovery key, if you use 2 step verification.
    Change the password and use it on your iPad and in iTunes afterwards.

    Do you use 2 step verification for your Apple ID?

    When you purchase an app, a book, music, movies, ... you'd have to enter the password AND a verification code.

    I go to the site you mentioned all the time to change passwords.
    The PC has worked in Itunes with a different password. It stopped working and I de authorised it and re authorised it and it worked. Then it stopped working.

    I am afraid to cancel password on PC Itunes as it might not accept,the IPad App Store password.

    The password in iTunes and App Store are the same, they shouldn't be different.

    Once again: do you use 2 step verification for your Apple ID?

    I don't understand what you mean. I put in email address and password. Same email for both.

    That's what I meant. Sorry!

    If you don't know what 2 step verification is, you won't use it, I suppose. It could create exactly the problem you're experiencing, because some people forget that they need the password for the Apple ID and a verification code to use it/purchase apps, music, ....

    Are you saying then not to bother getting it.? This problem started when I was in Canada having left Australia. Now I am back nothing has been right ever since.
