Customer Question
Trying to purchase book...

Trying to purchase book from iBooks. Says incorrect password. I have no idea since it’s not accepting the one I use. Somehow maybe got changed when I got new iPad and don’t recall doing it

Technician's Assistant: When did you last change your password ***** Apple ID?

I have no idea. Thought it was months ago but must have happened with new ipad

Technician's Assistant: Did you try resetting through Apple's online account reset tool?

I looked up how to change - going to apple account - I cloud but they want a password *****

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

I don’t think so. Just want a good Id for apple

Tech Support Specialist: Aparna Indresh, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 8 months ago

It sounds like you forgot the password ***** your Apple ID so in this case we can try to reset the password:

Please follow these steps and it will help you in resetting the password

1. You should be able to reset your password ***** the site: Click on this link http://iforgot.apple.com/

2. Enter your Apple ID and click Continue.

3. Select Email authentication followed by Next.

4. Check your email and there should be a message from Apple with instructions on how to reset your password.

5. If you can’t use your email address, another option you have available is to reset your password ***** answering the security questions you created when you setup your account.

6. Enter your Apple ID and click Continue.

-Select Answer security questions and click Continue.

-Set the birthday you used for the account and clicking Continue.

- Answer the security questions you picked when you set the account up.

7. If you answer these successfully, you should be able to reset your password ***** access your Apple ID again.

If that doesn't work or if any other steps is unclear please let me know, So that we can try some other alternate solution. Thank you

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
