Chapter in this post:
If you have forgotten the password for your iCloud, cannot reset it and cannot continue with your Apple ID (or have forgotten it), you can request an account recovery from Apple. However, this can take some time, which means that waiting times of up to two weeks are not uncommon. So if you are already waiting for your Apple or iCloud account to be restored, it pays to be patient.
After the two-step confirmation, you can neither log in nor reset the password? Then you can either try again or request the restoration of the iCloud or Apple ID account. According to Apple Support, you do this as follows:
"You may be asked to confirm other account information to speed up the restore process. After verifying your phone number, you will receive a confirmation that your request has been received and that you will be contacted as soon as your account can be restored.“, Apple adds.
When Apple informs you that your account is ready to be restored, you will call iforgot.apple.com and enter your Apple ID there. Then you confirm the above-mentioned phone number you provided to receive an SMS or a call. With the code transmitted in this way, you can restore the account.
Extensive information, once again all information as lists and so on, Apple offers in the support area of its website. How do you get there? Just click here! ;)
Potzblitz, you remembered your password again, but you have already requested that your iCloud / Apple account be restored? No problem! Apple writes: "If at any point you can remember your password or regain access to a verified device and log in successfully, the account recovery will stop automatically and you can continue to use your Apple ID as before."
