You can log the previous owner out of the App Store, so that you can purchase and install apps with your iTunes account.



But.... if you want the password prompt to go away for good, you'll have to reformat it or else delete the apps that were downloaded by the previous user. If you leave apps on the device that were installed with someone else's iTunes account, it will forever prompt you for that previous user's account password in attempts to update the apps purchased by the other user. It won't matter what account you're signed into the App Store with, if there's apps from another account, it will prompt you when there's an update for the app.
