    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Go to the App Store in Settings and you can just sign out of your old ID and then create a new one. Do you already have a new email for this account? Any apps that you have already bought with this ID will need to be updated with it, so when updates are due you will need to sign out of the new one and then sign back in with the old ID.

    If you already have a .me or .mac email address associated with your account, you can not change it. Otherwise:

    The Apple ID support link at the bottom will also (indirectly) take you to where you need to go to change your password.


    You will need to log out, and back into pretty much every iStore on both the computer and iPad after you change your password; and email and iCloud if you use them.
