"I forgot the password for the old email account used to register for the Apple ID, and iCloud keeps asking me to enter the password for the old account. It's annoying. Later, I changed the Apple ID to a new email address. After the change, iTunes and the app store can be used normally. However, iCloud still reminds me to enter the password of the old email account. This will not happen on my iPad. Endless inquiries by iCloud have disrupted my life. But no relevant solutions were found on forums such as Apple and MacWorld.
