To clarify; is this concerning the stand alone 4/6 digit passcode to unlock the device OR is it the password ***** the Apple ID?

password ***** apple id
Technician: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 4 months ago

Thanks. You can not have an Apple ID account with no password. That is not a choice Apple provides.

If you've forgotten your password ***** you might be able to reset it directly on the iPhone.

Please try the following on the device to reset the password.

tap Settings

tap [Your user name] (OR, for iOS 10.2 or earlier, tap iCloud > [your name])

tap Password & Security

tap Change Password

If you aren't already signed in to iCloud. Open Settings and tap "Sign in to your [device]" > "Don’t have an Apple ID or forgot it" and follow along. (OR, for iOS 10.2 or earlier, tap iCloud > “Forgot Apple ID or Password” then follow along)

If it only asks for password ***** enter an incorrect password ***** times and it should prompt to reset it.

John
