iPhone Asking For iTunes Password

The other day, my iPhone started asking me for my password. No big deal, right? Except that it did this in the middle of me using another app. That was a little odd, so I immediately quit to the home screen. Then, it asked me for my password again. So I canceled again, but I was starting to worry a bit. I think it was just a little hiccup related to me upgrading the iPhone OS or upgrading iTunes.

Anyways, I was able to resolve it by doing a sync with my computer. When I did that, I got asked to type my iTunes password on my notebook, which I did. Then, it downloaded a huge update for one of my apps (I think it was the Lonely Planet guide that I got for free once). I’ve also heard that this might happen if your credit card that you have on file has expired.

So if it happens to you, don’t panic. In general, it’s probably better not to type in your password when you’re not expecting to have to type it in and it’s easy to sync to your computer to see if that fixes the problem.
