Happy reading!
Through two-factor authentication
The easiest way to retrieve your Apple ID password is to restore it using two-factor authentication, which allows you to set a new password using any device associated with your Apple ID. Of course, two-factor authentication must be enabled to proceed with password recovery.
If you want to retrieve your Apple ID password using an iPhone or iPad, tap on the gear wheel icon to access iOS Settings and click on your name, then tap on Password and Security and tap on Change Password.
If the security code (the one you use to open the screen) is enabled on your Apple device and you are prompted to type it, enter it in the appropriate field on the Enter [device] code screen, then enter your new password in the New and Verify fields and tap the Edit item in the upper right corner to confirm your intention.
If no code is active, the two-factor authentication process will begin. Log in to a second device associated with your Apple ID, press the Allow button that appears on the screen, note the 6-digit verification code and press the Finish button, then enter the verification code on your iPhone/iPad and, on the Change Password screen, tap the Forgot your password?
Now, enter your phone number in the phone number field, press the Next button in the top right corner and select Reset with phone number, then enter the security code for your device (if you can't remember it, press the Forgot your [device] code? ), type the new access key in the Password and Confirm fields and tap on the Next and End buttons.
Are you using a Mac to retrieve your Apple ID password? If so, click the gear wheel icon on the Dock Bar, select the iCloud option, and press the Account Details button.
In the new window that opens, click Security, press the Change Password button and enter your Mac password in the password field, then type the new access key to match your Apple ID in the New Password and Confirm fields and click the Change button. Finally, press the Exit button to forcibly exit all devices and websites that use your Apple ID. Otherwise, click the Do Not Exit item to complete the password recovery process.
Via email or security questions
If two-factor authentication is not enabled on your device, you can recover your password by logging into Apple's official website and starting the password recovery process via email or security questions.
To proceed, go to the Apple website and click Forgot your Apple ID or password? On the Sign In Problems page? ... enter the email address associated with your Apple ID in the email@example.com field and press the Continue button, then tick the password box next to the password entry to indicate you want to retrieve your Apple ID password and click the Continue button.
On the Choose how you want to reset your password screen, check the box next to Receive an email to retrieve your password using the email address associated with your Apple ID, or next to Answer Security Questions to retrieve your password by answering two of the three security questions you set when you created your Apple ID. Once you've made your choice, press the Continue button.
If you've chosen to receive password recovery instructions by email, the Password Reset Email message sent will confirm the email was sent. Then, on the Finish button, click on the Reset item in the email you received and, on the new page that opens, enter your new Apple ID password (must be at least 8 characters long, contain a number and at least one lower case letter) in the New Password and Confirm Password fields, then press the Reset Password button and you're done. The Password change message will confirm that your access key has been changed.
If, however, you have chosen to reset your password using the security questions, first enter your date of birth in the security questions field and press the Continue button. Then, on the Answer Security Questions page, enter the answers to the two questions in the answer fields and click the Continue button. Now, enter your new password in the New Password and Confirm Password and press the Reset Password button to retrieve your Apple ID key.
By two-step verification
Two-step verification is another way to recover your Apple ID password. This is available for devices that cannot be upgraded to iOS 9 or macOS El Capitan and, as a result, do not have two-factor authentication.
If this is your case and you would like to recover your Apple ID password, log in to the official "Bitten Apple" company website and click the Forgot your Apple ID or password? Enter your Apple ID in the firstname.lastname@example.org field below Enter your Apple ID to get started and press the Continue button.
On the newly opened page, tick the password option and click the Continue button, then enter the recovery key (a 14-character code) provided when you enabled two-step verification and tap the Continue button. Finally, select one of the devices associated with your Apple ID to receive the 4-digit verification code, then enter the code you received in the field provided and enter the new password in the New Password and Confirm Password fields. Then click the Reset Password button to complete the recovery of your Apple ID access key.
