Having problems ,hope someone can help.

I had to change my apple ID as my server of many years was bought out and discontinued .

I changed my ID and PW on app store info and my iPhone 4 .ok

My IPAD does not register the new apple I.d. And will not recognize old or new password..
I can no longer update apps etc.

Has anyone ran into this before, and how was issue resolved?

Thanks

I'm sorry can you explain a bit more about what's happened?

Particularly the bit about why you had to change your apple ID?

Had to or did change apple ID as it was my discontinued email address. The server is shutting down.

After more trial and error last night it seems the issue may be that the IPhone was registered and PW etc set on the Canadian site.
My IPad is registered and PW set on US SITE .

When I go on app store my info is recognized on IPhone and all is well. If I do same on IPad my old email address shows up(even though it has been changed at source)(new id shows up on iPhone) then iPad will not recognize old or new PW that does work for app access on phone.

I can't seem to be able to get new apple I'd that shows up on phone OK To show up on iPad .
Still clear as mud??

Thanks for any input that can resolve this issue

Let me stop you right there.

Let's say your apple id was johnsmith@abc.com and abc service provider were closing down.

You just log into the apple site or iTunes with your apple ID and change your contact email to your new email address. Your Apple ID will still be johnsmith@abc.com but all correspondence between you and Apple will use your new email address.
The fact that johnsmith@abc.com doesn't exist as an email address any more doesn't matter it's just a username.

So just change your contact email address and carry on using your existing apple ID.

I thought of that too late after the fact.
As it stands I did change my apple ID to new email and also had to change PW. It all works fine on iPhone but I can't get iPad to match up . iPad does not recognize old or new password and still shows Apple ID as old one,
iPhone shows new apple ID and new PW works

I'm sorry I just don't understand.

Your apple ID is connected to your account. If you buy an app on this account you have to use that account and appleID to update that app. You can't transfer purchases between apple IDs.

When you say the iPad isn't recognising the password what does that mean where are you entering it? What error do you get.

If you want to update your existing apps you have to use your original apple ID

I can not sign in on iPad .
If I want to say....update an app. I klick on app. The little screen with apple I'd pops up and asks for password. The ID that shows up on iPad is old one. The password is not recognized ,therefore cannot buy or update app on iPad.

On iPhone doing repeat of above to upgrade app, my new apple ID (that I changed online )pops up and asks for PW. I enter new PW and app is updated as it should..

The pop up screen for apple ID and the PW is not the same on iPad and it will not work

Sorry but this makes no sense. I must be missing something.

You had an Apple ID that your bought apps on. Were these installed on both the iPad and the iPhone?

You thought you wouldn't be able to use this ID any more. How did you create the new ID? Did you contact Apple? Or did you just create a new one yourself?
You see there's no way of moving purchases from one ID to another.
So if you can update apps on your iPhone they must have been purchased using that same ID.

Also, if you want to use a different ID on a device go to the App Store, Featured page an scroll to the bottom.
Touch the Apple ID - Sign out
Now touch Apple ID again and choose sign in with existing ID

You need to get the original ID password reset. If you doing it doesn't work you need to contact Apple. Without that ID working you'll never be able to update the apps that we're purchased with it.

I understand what this person is saying because i have the exact same issue. I changed my email linked to my Apple account, bu my ipad does not change and no passowrd is accepted so I can no longer update apps on my ipad. How do I change the ipad to the new Apple ID? It still shows the old one and will not accept any password that i enter.
