Here are some simple methods for changing your Apple ID password.
Apple users understand the significance of their Apple ID and password. You can't use Apple services like iCloud, iMessage, or Apple Pay unless you have these. To set up new Apple devices, such as the new iPhone 14 models, Apple Watch Series 8, or Apple Watch Ultra, you'll also need your Apple ID and password.
You may be unable to access your device or any of Apple's services if you forget your Apple ID password (and do not use a password manager) or if your account has been compromised. Resetting your Apple ID password may be all that is required to regain access.
1) Using your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, reset your Apple ID password.
According to consumer data website Statista, iPhones will account for roughly half of Apple's revenue in 2021, so we'll start there. The steps for resetting your Apple ID password on your iPhone are also applicable to your iPad and Apple Watch. Here's how it works.
1. Navigate to Settings.
2. Click on your name.

When you set up a new Apple device, you'll be prompted to sign in with your Apple ID. Don't worry if you can't remember your password. Here's how to change your password during the installation process.

4) Without an Apple device, you can reset your Apple ID password.
You have a few options if you've abandoned Apple devices after previously using them but still need to log into your Apple ID. You can borrow an Apple device from a friend or family member, or you can use one from an Apple store. However, you cannot follow the same instructions as above. Here's how to change your Apple ID password from a borrowed or in-store device instead.
1. Launch the Apple Help app. The Apple Support app is also available for download from the App Store.
2. Passwords & Security should be selected.
3. Reset Apple ID Password is the option.
4. Keep choosing to Get Started.
5. Choose a different Apple ID.
6. Enter your Apple ID and then follow the onscreen instructions.
7. After you've reset your password, be sure to log out. You don't want anyone else to be able to view your profile.
5) Reset your Apple ID password online.
If everything else fails, Apple has a website where you can reset your Apple ID password. However, Apple warns that this method may take longer than the others on this list. If this is your only option, go to iforgot.apple.com and follow the instructions to have your password reset.
It's important to remember that once you change your Apple ID password on one device, you must log in with your new password on all of your other devices. So, rather than forgetting your new password in three days and repeating the cycle, save yourself the trouble and log back in while your new password is still fresh in your mind.
