How to Change iTunes Password

Your Apple ID and password work across iTunes and all of Apple's devices, and so both iTunes and iOS offer a way to change your password and the email address used for your ID. Even if you use iTunes and an iOS device, you only need to follow one of these methods, so pick whichever you prefer. After changing your password, however, you'll need to sign in again with the new password the next time you use iTunes on another computer or use your account on another iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
