Our Apple ID is what allows us to access our account, applications, iCloud and other services that we have with Apple. What should we do if we have forgotten the password for our famous username? We explain the steps to reset it.
The Apple ID is central to the use of our Apple devices.
This is what allows us to access our applications, buy them on the App Store, access our iCloud storage space and therefore our backups or make Facetime calls in particular.
However, if you have forgotten your password, it can make it difficult to perform one of these tasks or to migrate to a new Apple device.
We explain what to do if you forget your password and how to reset it depending on whether you have an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or a Mac computer.
