Here’s how to change your App Store Account on iOS 14
Apple introduced a handful of new features to iOS 14, but at the same time, Apple also had removed and/or shifted some of the existing features.
One of the existing features gets shifted in iOS 14 is the ability to change your App Store account.
Before iOS 14, to switch your App Store account, all you need to do is to go to Settings > iTunes & App Stores then have the App Store account switched, but now the same option is no longer available on the App Store. At first, I thought Apple has this feature removed so people with multiple App Store accounts won’t be able to switch between accounts anymore. But then I find out a working workaround.

Why you need to change your App Store Account?
In case anyone wondering, I have US App Store account, but then today I don’t live in US, but Singapore. While as much as possible I want to make use of my US App Store account, but there are certain apps or games that are only available to Singapore market, hence I need the ability to change/switch between App Store accounts.
Here’s how to switch App Store Account on iOS 14
1) Open the Apple App Store.
2) Inside App Store, under Today tab, tap on your Apple ID icon, located on top right of the screen.
3) Under Account page, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, tap on Sign Out to sign out from your current Apple ID.
4) Once signed out, scroll all the way back to the top of the page, key in your other Apple ID and Password.
5) Then hit the Sign In button.
Voila! Now you just managed to switch your App Store account!

” Inside App Store, under Today tab, tap on your Apple ID icon, located on top right of the screen.”
Apple service reinstalled my iOS 14 yesterday and the above is wrong. There is no ‘Today’ tab when I go to Settings > App Store
You read it wrongly. Don’t go to Settings > App Store. But go to App Store (the App), then you should find Today tab.
