"Please help me! I have tried it again and again. How can I quickly reset my forgotten iCloud password? In addition, I can also accept the solution to restore or unlock the Apple ID password. I need to regain access to the iCloud account as soon as possible. "
When we use iTunes, iCloud, or Apple ID for the first time on other devices, we need to enter the corresponding password to operate. If you forget your password, you need to reset it. Maybe many people wonder that Apple devices need to set passwords for so many accounts? What is the difference between them? In fact, when using iTunes or iCloud, you can log in to iTunes or iCloud using your Apple ID and password. Therefore, they can be considered as one account. With that confusion resolved, let's get started on how to reset your Apple ID password.

Part 1: Quickly reset Apple ID password

If your account does not have two-factor authentication enabled, you can quickly reset your password by following these steps.
