How To Reset Your Apple ID Password (The #1 Method)

by

If you’re an Apple user, your Apple Id is probably one of the most important logins you have. After all, the single ID allows you to access all of your iCloud account–which includes emails, calendars, your photos, and more–as well as buy content on the iTunes Store, access your Apple Music account, buy apps through the App Store, and buy Mac apps through the Mac App Store.

That’s why it can be so horrifying if you’ve forgotten your Apple ID password. You could literally be shut off from most of the content in your life. Sadly, people forget their Apple ID (and other) passwords more often than you think.

Part of this is due to the fact that people are choosing harder, more secure passwords–but those passwords by their very nature are thus harder to remember too.

Thankfully, if you’ve forgotten your Apple ID password there is a way you can regain access to your account and content. To do that, however, you’ll need to reset your Apple ID one of these three ways:
