Hey there
I did search before posting however I didnt find an answer to my problem
I bought my iphone used, so every app on the iphone is connected to the seller's apple id. (Is there a solution to that in case I wanted to update those apps?))
Anyway the problem is my newly installed apps that were downloaded using my apple Id are asking for the old apple id for updating.. What to do?

A simpler question: I was playing a game I downloaded with my ID and now it requires an update so that I can continue playing it, and the update asks for the old ID's password, is there a way to solve this issue?

Restore the phone as new and quit using someone else's ID and apps.

In a nutshell, that's the answer. Once you restore the phone, you can download your own apps again (for free since you already paid for them) and the phone will stop bugging you for old IDs.
