I had buy a new iPad mini 2. The worker of the shop where I bought my iPad was already setting my iPad. He was also created an Apple ID for me. But whenever I want to install any apps, I must enter my password of my Apple ID although I already signed in. Why does this problem happen?


That is normal. Your Apple ID is different from the ID you use to sign in to your iPad. It will always ask for your Apple ID password before a new purchase to make sure that someone else is not purchasing from your account.

If you forgot your Apple ID password, you can reset it at: https://iforgot.apple.com/

Your can change it so that it will not ask you again if you made a purchase within 15 minutes: go to Settings, then 'iTunes & App Store' and then select 'Require After 15 Minutes'.

  • I didn't realise that perhaps you do not know the password to your Apple ID - I have added a link to my answer that you can use to reset it. – Ali Beadle Dec 30 '16 at 12:48
