Unknown Apple IDs prompted on iPad 3
Posted on 2013-01-08
My client recently purchased an iPad v3 and to set it up, restored their iPad v2's configuration from their iCloud backup. All appears to be working except:
At random times during the day, or when they attempt to purchase or update apps from the App Store, they get no less than 10 prompts to login with 10 different Apple IDs the user has never seen before.
One of them, firstname.lastname@example.org was seen in a similar context by another iTunes Store user, two years ago.
Not sure what we're dealing with here, if it's a bug or a hack. Other mystery Apple IDs we're seeing include email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com.
Any input or experience would be appreciated -
