Almost every Apple device bought is linked to an Apple ID. It is with this account that you can purchase apps, download updates, and even back up accounts and recover devices. This ID, or account, is vitally important and it is worthwhile making a concerted effort to remember it. If you do happen to forget it then you could encounter some problems.
Your Apple ID is how Apple identifies you. It is what you use to access and download apps on iTunes, enable iCloud, purchase from the Apple Store, and even book appointments with Apple Store representatives and tech support.
When you first set up a new Apple device, say an iPad, you are asked to sign up for an Apple ID. As with most other online accounts, you will set a password and the usual recovery questions to ensure that you can gain access to the account should you forget your password, something that happens to the best of us.
If you remember your Apple ID but can’t remember the password you have two options. The first works if you have access to the email address you’ve linked your Apple ID with.
Check your email and there should be a message from Apple with instructions on how to reset your password.
The second option you have available is to reset your password by answering the security questions you created when you setup your account.
If you answer these successfully, you should be able to reset your password and access your AppleID again.
If you are not able to remember your recovery email address, password or security questions it may feel a little hopeless, but fear not, there is a way that might work.
When you do talk to an Apple representative they will ask you questions about your account and personal information you provided when you first signed up for your ID. In many instances, the representative will be able to unlock your account or reset your password. Another option is to schedule a time to go into an Apple store or retailer for an appointment to see if they can help.
