You can't merge accounts or copy content to a different account, so anything that you bought or downloaded via the old account is tied to that account - so any updates that those apps get you will only be able to download via that account. You can change which account is logged in on the iPad via Settings > Store

  • I cant change my apple ID because my linked e mail address is corporate and is not longer active, how can I delete and replace for mew one

    Does anyone knows how can delete the current I cloud ID form my I phone 5, because the linked e mail is not longer active, because it was a corporate account and i am not working with that company.

    Go to Settings>iCloud, turn off Find My iPhone and provide the password when prompted.  Then change the primary email address associated with the ID as explained here: Change your Apple ID.  After making the change, save any photo stream photos that you want to keep to your camera roll (unless already there) by opening your my photo stream album, tapping Select, tapping the photos, tap the share icon (box with upward facing arrow), then tapping Save to Camera Roll.  Then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account, choose Delete from My iPhone when prompted (your data will still be in iCloud), then sign back in with the updated ID.

  • I have two apple ID's but cannot remember the security question answers and the email address is no longer active - how can I access this account

    I have two apple ID's but cannot remember the security question answers and the email address is no longer active - how can I access this account as it seems to be the one my icloud space is attached to.  I haven't backed up my ipad or photos for a while.

  • HT4759 How can i delete an old iCloud account and start using my own using my Apple ID? If I don't have the old password??

    How can i delete an old iCloud account and start using my own using my Apple ID? If I don't have the old password??

    If your device is signed into an old iCloud ID that is an earlier version of the ID you want to sign in with, do the following:
    If you are using iMessage and FaceTime, make sure you are signed into these services with your current ID.  If they are signed into the old ID, go to Settings>Messages>Send & Receive and Settings>FaceTime, tap the ID, sign out, then sign back in with your current ID.
    Then temporarily recreate the old ID by going to https://appleid.apple.com, click Manage my Apple ID and sign in with your current iCloud ID.  Click edit next to the primary email account, change it back to your old email address and save the change.  (You should not have to verify the old email account so it doesn’t matter if you no longer have access to it.)  Now go to Settings>iCloud, turn off Find My iDevice and enter your current password when prompted (even though it prompts you for the password for your old ID).  Then save any photo stream photos that you wish to keep to your camera roll (unless you are using iCloud Photo Library).  When finished go to Settings>iCloud, tap Sign Out (or Delete Account if you are not running iOS 8) and choose Delete from My iDevice when prompted (your iCloud data will still be in iCloud).  Next, go back to https://appleid.apple.com and change your primary email address back to the way it was.  Now you can go to Settings>iCloud and sign back in with your current iCloud ID and password (your data will download back to your device).

  • HT1338 my MAc Book PRO 13" Retina display will not update.  It crashes every time I try to do an update.  I have sent in the information on each update but so far nothing back from Apple.

    my MAc Book PRO 13" Retina display will not update.  It crashes every time I try to do an update.  I have sent in the information on each update but so far nothing back from Apple.  Also it does not matter what I am trying to update, the operating system, and application, each caused the same crash.   This mac book is less than a month old.

    That is the highest you will be able to go with 3g. You need 3gs or 4 to go any higher (multi processors and more memory needed).  Version 4.2.1 marks the end of your updates for that device.

    Hi Peter, unfortunately you have to delete the account. If you don't remember the password anymore, then please go to https://iforgot.apple.com/ to reset the password.

  • I am running InDesign CC. Every time I try to redefine a paragraph style, it crashes.  It's just start doing it and I have had CC for a few months.  Any suggestions? Thank you

    I am running InDesign CC. Every time I try to redefine a paragraph style, it crashes.  It's just start doing it and I have had CC for a few months.  Any suggestions? Thank you

    Do you mean Toolkit or TypeKit, which is part of CC? See Remove minor corruption by exporting. If that doesn't work, try exporting the text to ID Tagged Text and place in a new file, and if that also fails, try removing the fonts.

  • Hi there I lost my password for my original iTunes account I can't recover it because the email address it is registered under is not longer valid How can I access my old account?

    Hi there.
    I did a factory restore and then restored it with iCloud back-up. I have been using lots of Apple products and i have used three different email adresses. Almost all apps restored perfectly but everytime i try to play a song in the Music app, i asks me for a Apple-ID i had no idea i have used.
    Hence:
    I lost my password for my original iTunes account
    I can't recover it because the email address it is registered under is not longer valid
    How can I access my old account?
    Can't find a place to change the email address to my new one without the password which I no longer remember.
    There is no way to just erase Apple-ID's on my device either.
    What to do? Should i ju give up and start from scratch and delete 2 years of stuf?
    Cheers!

    If you can remember the answers to the security questions when you set up that account - I think that you can reset the password without needing email authentication. You can try it here. Read it and see if it's possible. But if you can't remember the answers to the questions it will not work.
