    In trying to update aps on my IPad 2, the window asking for my Apple ID password pops up, but has an old ID/ email address that I don't have access to. How do I change this to reflect my current Apple ID so I can update my aps?

    App updates have to be done with the iTunes account email that originally downloaded them. You cannot transfer apps to another iTunes Id.

    I'm afraid that you'll have to delete the apps and re-purchase them with your new Apple ID,if they were paid apps.If they were free apps,you just delete them and download them under your new Apple ID and email.
    You might be better off restoring the iPad to factory settings and setting it up as a new iPad under your new Apple ID.
