re-install Pages on new iPad after changing AppleId

Views: 356 Replies: 1
I have an issue where I lost my recovery key used for my AppleId. I was not able to recoverdue to no other devices. Created a new AppleId. I purchased a new iPad and sync the old iPad to the new one. Some apps need to be updates, an example is Pages, Numbers, etc. These were free when I purchase the previous iPad. Since, I'm using a different AppleId, I'm unable to update these apps. If I delete and tried to add as new, I need to purchase.

Is there a way to update the apps that are tied to the old AppleId to my current AppleID

No - unfortunately - the apps are permanently tied to the ID

But you should have free Pages, Numbers and Keynote on the new iPad if you activated with the new account

Also you can sign out of the old iPad with the prior account and sign in with the new one and you should be able access the iWork apps
