You can also use this method on a trusted iPad, iPod touch, or Apple Watch.

Use the Apple Support app

If you don't have an Apple device, but you have access to your trusted phone number, you can borrow an Apple device from a friend or family member or use one at an Apple Store.

  • Under Topic, tap Passwords & Security.
  • Click Reset Apple ID password.
