Why does my iPhone keep asking me to sign in to iCloud?
Sometimes your iPhone or iPad repeatedly asks for your password after downloading an app or iOS update. It prompts you to sign in with your Apple ID, which connects to your iCloud account, usually because the download freezes or fails to complete. This annoying error can also be caused by an outdated version of iOS.
Here’s how to make your iPhone stop from asking you to log into iCloud
Power cycle your device
- Open Settings on your iPhone and iPad.
- Tap the Apple ID banner.
- Tap Exit.
- Tap Exit iCloud.
- Enter your password to disable the Find My iPhone feature on your iPhone or iPad.
- Tap Turn off.
- Tap Exit.
- Turn off your iPhone or iPad.
- Tap the Apple ID banner.
- Tap iCloud.
- Tap Not [your name or email address] if you use a separate Apple ID for iCloud and iTunes/App Store and have not exited the latter.
- Enter your Apple ID and iCloud password.
- It may take a few minutes to connect to iCloud.
- Enter the password for the current device.
- Enter the password of the device you want to use to complete the setup process.
Updating to the latest version of iOS
If your iPhone keeps showing up with the Apple ID password screen, it’s probably due to an outdated version of iOS. So simply update your iDevices to the latest version of iOS, which will help fix the iPhone or iPad that keeps asking for your Apple ID password.
Open the Settings app on your iPhone -> Tap General -> Tap Software Update to see if an update is available -> If so, tap Download and Install to get the available iOS version.
Resetting the Apple ID password
On your iPhone/iPad:
- Go to Settings -> [your name] -> Password and Settings -> Select Change Password.
- Enter your current password or your device password -> Enter a new password and confirm it -> Click Change or Change Password.
- Open the Apple ID login page and log in to your account -> Go to Security and select Change Password.
- Enter your current password -> Enter a new password and confirm your password -> Click Change Password.
Resetting network settings
The problem with your iPhone, iPad, and iCloud “asking for your password over and over” may be due to problems with your Wi-Fi network. To fix this error, all you need to do is reset your network settings.
On your device, go to Settings -> General -> Scroll down and tap Reset -> Tap Reset Network Settings.
Turn off the “Password Required” feature in iTunes and the App Store
If you’re having trouble signing in to the iTunes Store with a password, you can try another option. And if you want to keep your Apple`s App Store login, follow these steps:
Go to Settings -> Select iTunes and App Store -> Click on Password Settings under your Apple ID -> Turn off the Ask for password option (if it’s off, turn it on, then turn it off) -> Wait a minute and the problem will be solved.
