    Helo everyone.

    I wanna ask you something that I want to know

    Can we change our apple username with the new one without change the password?
    Will this change take the effect to the applications that we have purchased from iTunes with the old username?
    Or there will any other effects?

    Thx...

    Yes, you can. To do this, use this website link to access your Apple ID:
    https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyAppleId.woa/

    Choose "Manage Apple ID", login with your current Apple ID email address and password. Then, go to "Name, ID and Email Addresses" (left side). At the right you will see "Apple ID and Primary Email Address", with your current address, and "Edit " next to it:

    Tap "Edit", and enter the email address you want to use. You'll have to verify that adress afterwards.

    Oh, and I forgot to add: this doesn't affect your purchases. I had to change my email address (Apple ID) twice, and I did so the way I described it, and the "old" apps, books, music, ... are still here.
