    I changed my Apple ID in iTunes and all is well there, finally, but I still can't update my apps on iPad, as it still has my old Apple ID.

    I changed everything in Settings too.

    Any suggestions?

    When I go into the app store on the iPad, into Featured, it states, my new account/email/ID.

    Just not on the updates...:confused::mad:

    Nope. It didn't work. I was scared too, thinking it wouldn't let me back in under my new ID, but it did.

    But then I went to Updates, I have 8!.....and my OLD ID still is there:(

    Do you have Plan B, by any chance?:)

    It was. Especially, since I was not paying attention and then I clicked on it and it was me!

    :eek:

    Seems as though I will never be able to update all my 9 apps!:(

    Just for fun, in iTunes go to the STORE tab and click on "Check for available downloads... I have found that sometimes when I try to update thru iTunes, it says I have updates but won't download them. Clicked on "Check for available downloads... and it downloaded them.

    Okay. I went into iTunes and on the bottom right, there is a tab, Downloads. Doesn't say "check for available ....".

    But I clicked on it and it is a blank page, with Terms and Agreements, which takes me to all the countries.

    iTunes is so not playing well with me today.:(

    Do YOU have a Plan B?:D

    Don't feel bad, guys. No one at this other site I registered knows the answer either.

    I will call Apple today, I guess.

    So did you just change your Apple ID name or did you start a whole new account? Because wouldn't the old apps be tied to your old account since that's the account that purchased it so therefore it would need your old account ID and password to update it? I've never changed names so I'm just throwing that out there.
