Perhaps your existing Apple ID mobile number is no longer used. Or maybe you want to switch to a different phone number that you just installed a SIM card in a brand new iPhone. If you get a new email address or lose access to your old email address, if you want to change your Apple ID password. Whatever kind of difficulty you face, let me tell you.

 

Change Trusted Phone Number for Your Apple ID on iPhone

 

When you first enable two-factor authentication for your iCloud account, Apple automatically registers the phone number you use on your iPhone as a trusted phone number. This phone number is used to verify your identity, adding an extra layer of protection to your Apple ID. Whenever you (or for that matter, anyone) logs into your account on a new device, a 2FA prompt will appear on the trusted device for extra login security.

 

Now you can easily change your Apple ID's trusted phone number if you lose access to your device. Just follow the steps below:

 

1. Go to the Settings app on your iPhone, then tap the Apple ID banner at the top, then tap Password & Security.

What To Do if You Can’t Remember Your Apple ID Password

 

If you can't remember your Apple ID password, don't worry. There are a few things you can do to reset it and get it back into your account.

 

First, look through all of your saved passwords. It's possible that the device you're using stored your Apple ID password when you last entered it. If you find your password in your saved passwords, you can use that to log into your Apple ID account. Users may want to check their password manager (LastPass, 1Password, etc.) to see if their Apple ID password is stored there.

 

If you don't find your Apple ID password in your saved passwords, don't worry. There are a few other options you can try.

 

Next, use Apple's password reset tool to reset your Apple ID password. You'll need to enter your Apple ID and answer a few security questions. You can try using Apple's two-step verification process if you can't remember your answers. This will send a code to your trusted device that you can use to reset your password.

 

You can contact Apple Support for help if you're still having trouble. They'll be able to walk you through the process and help you get back into your account.
