    Apple ID 90 Days


    Edited March 21, 2012


    Owners of iOS devices are facing an issue that came along with iOS 5 (now iOS 5.1) which is that they mistakenly associate their device with the wrong Apple ID and cannot switch accounts or the following messages pops up:

    "The device is already associated with an AppleID and cannot be associated with another Apple ID for 90 days"

    Removing an associated device from a computer

    To remove a device or computer from your Apple ID:

         (Note: Make sure your automatically downloads are turned on by going to Settings > Store)

         1. Open iTunes (Make sure you are running the latest version)

         2. Sign in to your Apple ID by choosing Store > Sign In

         (Note: Must sign in with the Apple ID that the device is associated with)

         3. Choose Store > View My Account from the iTunes menu.

         4. From the Account Information screen, click Manage Devices.

         5. Click the Remove button next to the device name you would like to unassociate.

    Note: Removing a device from your Apple ID does not override the 90 day timer. The timer must complete 90 days from the day the device was associated before it can be associated to another Apple ID.
