Apple ID autofill problem
After moving and getting a new email address, I was able to call and get my Apple ID changed. But now when I need to sign in - in order to approve update downloads- the auto fill thingy puts in my old email as my Apple ID and it won’t let me change it. So I have no way to sign in. Any ideas how to fix this? I do not have apple care any longer. Thanks.
Assuming you’re using Safari, this is easily fixed by going into Safari > Preferences > AutoFill and then click on the “Edit…” next to “User names and passwords.” FIlter in there for apple.com and remove anything that has your old address. THat *should* do it.
I’m guessing you’re referring to App Store Updates? If so, you can change which account you’re logged into, under System Preferences > iCloud. If you’re having issues with the updater saying you’re logged into the wrong account, take a look at this solution: http://www.ngpixel.com/2011/06/25/mac-app-store-you-have-updates-available-for-the-other-accounts-bug/
