iPhone or iPad Two Factor Auth

This is for Apple iOS devices (iPhone and iPad) with iOS version 10,3 or better with Two-Factor Authentication; it is very simple IF you have your trusted device, a Passcode set for it AND have Find My iPhone (or iPad) turned on -- if the last two are not already enabled and you forget your password then you must go thru Account Recovery -- that may very well take a few weeks ...

--> Step 1 - Must have Trusted device (iPhone or iPad) - if your computer is a trusted device and you cannot get into your Apple ID then you can set password under iCloud Settings in System Prefences.

--> Step 2 - Goto Settings, tap your Name, go to iCloud, scroll down to Find My iPhone and try to turn it off -- it should ask for a password and after three failed attempts it will ask you to change it with you device's Passcode (if you didn't set it you must do Account Recovery - IF you forgot the Passcode then you have TWO problems ... but thats a different story for another time.)

--> Step 3 - After Resetting your password be sure you can use it at appleid.apple.com's web site ...
