After changing the email address of my Apple ID, my iPhone prompts at least once a day to verify my iCloud password.

After changing the email address I logged out of the App Store, iCloud, iMessage, and Facetime. I then logged back in using the new email address.

I did this on both my iPad and Phone, but it only seems to be the phone that keeps prompting for the password.

I doesn't prompt at any specific time, it just pops up at seemingly random times.

A search on the Internet hasn't turned up anything helpful.

I believe this may be a specific app you have 'bought' through the app store, but 'registered' with the old email?

I had this for a kids story app on my home iPad a while back, it had registered my (old) email for 'restore' purposes, but saw my current email as being different, even though it was still the same apple account.

deleted the app and it went away, then reinstalled it and 'restored' with the new email addy and it didn't bug me again! 

Hope this helps?

I think mine was because I had an old iPad 3 that isn't getting used any more (as I've just replaced it with an Air 2) but it was still turned on and had the old address in it, once I turned that off the messages stopped. Why this would cause it to pop up on my iPhone I don't know, but haven't had it in a couple of days now.
