Customer Question
Hello, today I updated...

Hello, today I updated an apple update successfully. However, my Apple iPhone won't accept my user id or password. I changed password ***** Apple doesn't recognize my user name or password ***** ***** *****

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

I changed my password ***** an hour ago on request. Before that, not for a long time.

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

No, can you help with that?

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

The problem I'm having is with my iPhone update, not Mac.

Your email address is normally used as the username for your Apple ID. You should be able to reset your password ***** a computer using the site:

http://iforgot.apple.com/

1) Enter your Apple ID and click Continue. (If you have forgotten your Apple ID, click the option to “look it up” on that same page and supply the requested info. Then, once you have the ID, return to reset the password ***** needed.)

NOTE: If you are asked to confirm your trusted phone number, or asked for a “Recovery Key”, AND you also have a Mac, iPhone, or iPad using the SAME Apple ID where you can currently access the home screen, STOP and let me know - otherwise continue.

2) Select the option to reset your password. Choose how to reset your password:

  • select "Answer security questions" to answer your stored security questions and then follow the rest of the steps.
  • select "Get an email" to receive an email you can use to reset your password.

3) Once you have the Apple ID and have reset the password, test out that it is working properly by signing into the Apple ID management site: https://appleid.apple.com/

While signed in, it's a good idea to verify that all other details are current and correct.

4) You should restart all your Apple devices before signing in with the new password.

If you still have concerns, don’t negatively rate my answer, just reply back and let me know. I'll be happy to advise you further. When finished, please give a positive rating so I can be credited for my assistance. You are judging my personal service only (not this website, the price, or your issue) and high ratings assure I remain in good standing.

Thanks and good luck,

John
