    I got a new iphone 6 and an apple id was added for the cloud. I set up a new apple id and I want to change it, but I can't. Can you help?

    Log out with the old one and sign in with the new one.

    To sign out, go to Settings > iCloud > (scroll to bottom) Sign Out.

    Hi,
    thanks for your reply, but my problem is:
    i changed my apple ID long time ago and as i changed now from my iphone4 to iphone6 iam asked every 30 minutes for my icloud password for my old apple ID (old E-Mail Adress) :-(
    Where can i change this?
    In iMessage and Facetime is the same old E-Mail Adress as well :-(
    Meanwhile this hurts!
    Any Ideas?

    Kind regards

    Hello there

    The solution to your problem is what HankAZ said
    Log out with the old one and sign in with the new one.

    To sign out, go to Settings > iCloud > (scroll to bottom) Sign Out.


    Unless you have some apps downloaded with your old ID, in that case the app store is going to ask you for the password you downloaded those apps with, in the first place (your old password in this case).

    If you forgot your old password, try getting to the icloud.com and recovering/reseting it otherwise you won't be able to download/update those apps, ergo you'll still get the pop up asking for the password.

    That's irrelevant.
