Go to Settings
First things first, open up the Settings app and tap on your Apple ID (your picture and name at the top of the screen).
Enter Password & Security
Tap Password & Security, which should be the second option down on the Apple ID list.
Tap the blue Change Password text at the very top of the Password & Security screen.
Enter iPhone passcode
Enter your alphanumerical iPhone passcode when asked.
