Hi there, and welcome to JustAnswer, I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.
On the iPhone, go to Settings, iCloud > delete account, go to previous page, back into iCloud, change apple id
Then it is set with the ID you wish.
If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen and then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

I have no option to delete this old account
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I have no option to delete the account. The one that I need changed is when you want to update apps you get an old logon that we don't remember the password. How do you get that out.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
