Two-step authentication is an older method of authentication for your Apple-ID. This is no longer "good enough" to be used with developer accounts. You MUST upgrade to two-factor authentication as a developer. There's no way to login as a develop with two-step authentication anymore. Apple has a detailed guide on enabling two-factor authentication here: ...

After few day and multiple restarts subscription button showed in an Apple TV app, it looks like it is only matter of time.

There's a good chance you bought a stolen iPhone. I'd bring it to an Apple Store or contact Apple support: How to Contact Us - Apple If it hasn't been reported as stolen, maybe they'll be able to help you. I would not expect that anyone here knows the answer to this. Even if there was such an exploit, knowledge of it could make a person quite wealthy. ...

I had the same issue on my new MacBook Pro, Catalina 10.15.2, and resetting my keychain didn't help. After speaking to support the issue had something to do with my network filtering and it worked after connecting to my phone hotspot. They also asked me to create another admin user and try logging in there but that didn't work either.

Apps: All Apps that are eligible for family sharing will be available on a new AppleID that is added to Family Sharing. Keep in mind that In-App purchases are not shared. More detailed info is available in the Apple Support Article. A desktop computer (preferably a Mac) would probably be the easiest way to properly distribute the content. Set up both the new ...

If I understand things, you wish to walk away from the “old email” entirely - lose all cloud data, lose all purchases and make a new iCloud / AppleID on your new email. If so, you’re going to need a few things and some luck or a call to Apple Support. Here are some limitations. If your device is activation locked, you can’t walk away from the old iCloud - ...

Oddly enough, I was able to resolve this by deleting the application in the Finder (open Finder, Go > Applications menu item, select the App in question, drag to trash) and then allowing the App Store to re-download the application while signed in to my personal Apple ID. So it appears that somehow the Apple ID you are signed in to when you download ...

Can police/hackers unlock iPhones? Yes. Actually, it's more accurate to say that police have access to tools that can access iOS and Android devices. The company is Cellebrite and for $1,500, police can send in the device to be unlocked. From a 2018 Forbes article The Feds Can Now (Probably) Unlock Every iPhone Model In Existence "With its service ...

There isn’t a hard drive in iPhones, and Apple has engineered things so that it’s very expensive to get to the leads and snoop or alter the electrical signals to defeat encryption, so there’s no trivial path to decrypt or bring another os to your storage. However, you should assume that unless you’re very good the police and government can get your data by ...

Yes - you can split accounts on one device and this is just about the only case where I would say you would want to make a second AppleID. Just be really careful when you sign in - in general don't accept or enter the AppleID in any set up screen as that places the first AppleID in all the slots. Decline the easy set up and choose app by app which you want ...

What happened? This is actually a widespread issue that was reported by others on macrumors' forums yesterday. Likely we'll see this happen to more and more iPhone users. This Twitter Thread explains that there is a security flaw in Apple's password reset process which gives explicit confirmation once a correct phone number is inputted for a given Apple ID....

This association is purely optional. You don't need an AppleID or an iCloud to manage your Mac and as long as you're the original purchaser and have proof of purchase, you can lock the firmware, iCloud Activation Lock and take your Mac to Apple and they will unlock it for you. The only reason to put your admin account into iCloud is if you want to let that ...

For iOS era devices (as was true for computers initially), the obvious case for not being able to talk to the online store is network issues. The tap should take you to the page to enter payment and address or complete the account setup for your AppleID. You can manually enter that following the links below if you want. If you can’t take your iPad (or ...

This is a really bad idea in my experience. I would recommend you make a family and share your Apple Music subscription (app purchases as well) so that you each can maintain your own playlists / mixes / play counts and such and only share the payment - not the actual data. You’re able to choose different AppleID for each item that allows you to sign in so I ...

Yes - you can sign in using different Apple ID for the music app and not share the same AppleID as you do with other items like the App Store, iCloud preferences, FaceTime and Messages. In fact, you could choose a different account for each one of the above if you wanted to be creative or difficult or just had specific needs. I use my work AppleID for ...

The resolution for me was to launch iTunes on my Mac, and sign in from the account menu there. Have some patience and keep trying if it at first does nothing; I had to log in twice as clicking on the "Review" button on the first attempt did nothing. I had to accept the terms of service and reenter my payment details, even though I had already done both ...

You will have the least headaches to bribe (or make time) to wipe the device - and set yourself up as the Family Owner using your own Apple ID. To start, just use parental controls and have the child come to you for authorization. Once you have gotten a few purchases in, maybe with a $25 gift card - then consider if you can approve purchases from an ...
