comment I was physically robbed and now can't manage my Apple ID… how can I extract my purchases?
@AndrewU. I wiped the phone using FMI. However I cannot reset the password because I have two-step authentication on the account and my only two authentication methods were stolen.

I saw the family sharing thing, have yet to attempt this but I had the same idea. Are you sure that it shares both directions like that?

The fact that I cannot change the password means that this account is even less secure now. It is a design flaw when a system that is suppose to make things more secure makes them less secure.

comment Will a 1.8GHz MacBook Air be much faster than a 1.3GHz model?
FWIW the RAM cannot be upgraded on these so make sure you get the model that has as much as you'll ever want

I have yet to call developer support, I will try that soon. I am wondering if the security is such that not even anyone at Apple can access the account. Kind of like how a password can be hashed.

yeah I hope they fix this soon, not only is it a security flaw because I can't change my password but also I am not going to make any new purchases until this is addressed, I don't want to tie up any more money in a system that I could be locked out of like this

this part cracks me up: As long as you remember your Apple ID password and still have access to one of your trusted devices, you can sign in and create a new Recovery Key. Go to My Apple ID, select "Manage your Apple ID," and sign in. Under Edit your Apple ID, select "Password and Security." Under Recovery Key, select Replace Lost Key and follow the onscreen instructions. NOPE: it asks for the RKEY when I try to login

@JamesManes yep, and after much ado and the rep telling me how much they will surely be able to resolve the issue, they do some digging and say that this is now entirely in my hands which I agreed to when I signed up for two-step... my last ditch effort may be next time I am in Cupertino to show up with a photo-id and a sign that says "I AM ME PLS HALP"
