Account verification failed, and you need to connect into your Apple ID. You can’t seem to sign in with your Apple ID, no matter what you attempt. I’ll show you how to fix the problem when your Apple ID verification failed!
Do You Need A Verification Code?
Using Apple’s two-factor authentication method is one of the simplest ways to restore access to your Apple ID. You’ll need to enter a verification code if two-factor authentication is enabled. Continue to the next step if two-factor authentication isn’t enabled.
Get A Verification Code Displayed On Your Device
- Use your Apple ID and password to log in to a new device or browser.
- On any of your trusted Apple devices, look for a notification.
- Allow should be selected.
- To sign in, enter the verification code provided on the screen.
Get A Verification Code Through Text Or Phone Call
- Tap “Didn’t get a verification code” on the sign-in screen.
- If you want the code sent to your phone, select that option.
- The code will be sent to you via text or phone call.
- To sign in, enter the verification code provided.
Get A Verification Code In The Settings App (iPhone)

Restart Your iPhone
Restarting your iPhone can often resolve software problems, such as those that are interfering with the Apple ID authentication procedure. The procedure for restarting an iPhone varies based on the model:
iPhones With A Home Button
- Hold down the power button for a few seconds.
- When “slide to power off” appears, release the power button.
- To switch off your iPhone, slide the red and white power icon from left to right.
- To restart your iPhone, wait 30–60 seconds and then press and hold the power button again.
- When the Apple logo displays on the screen, release the power button.
iPhones Without A Home Button
- Press and hold both the volume and side buttons at the same time.
- When “slide to power off” displays on the screen, release both buttons.
- To turn off your iPhone, slide the power symbol from left to right.
- Hold the side button for roughly 30–60 seconds to reactivate your iPhone.
- When the Apple logo displays on the screen, release the side button.
Make Sure Your iPhone Is Connected To The Internet
To authenticate your Apple ID, you’ll need to be connected to the internet. Before attempting to validate your Apple ID, make sure your iPhone is connected to Wi-Fi or Cellular Data.
Check Your Wi-Fi Connection
Go to Settings and select Wi-Fi. Make sure the Wi-Fi switch is green, which means it’s turned on. We recommend immediately turning off and on the switch since this can occasionally resolve a minor software issue.
Check Your Cellular Connection
Select Cellular from the drop-down menu in Settings. Check that the switch next to Cellular Data is green, indicating that it is turned on. We propose fast turning this switch off and on, much like with Wi-Fi, to resolve a minor software issue.
Automatically Set Date & Time Settings
When the Date & Time on your iPhone isn’t automatically set, it might cause a slew of issues. Your iPhone may believe it is in the past or the future, preventing it from performing tasks such as authenticating your Apple ID. Turning on Set Automatically is the easiest method to avoid problems with Date & Time settings.
Tap General -> Date & Time in Settings. Set Automatically by turning on the switch next to it. When the switch is green, you know it’s on.
Sign Out of Your Apple ID
Account services may require you to log out and back into your Apple ID before updating your account. Signing out and back in again may be enough to remedy verification issues.
How To Sign Out And Back Into Your Apple ID
- Open the Settings menu.
- At the top of the screen, tap your name.
- Sign out by scrolling all the way down.
- Please type in your password.
- If Find My iPhone is turned on, tap Turn Off in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
- Sign out by pressing the Sign Out button.
- Return to the main Settings page and select Sign in to your iPhone.
- Use your Apple ID and password to log in.

It’s time to contact Apple support if Apple ID verification continues to fail. It’s possible that there’s a problem with your Apple ID that only a high-level customer service representative can fix. Apple provides online, phone, and in-person assistance. If you plan to visit your local Apple Store, make an appointment first!
