    Trying to simply install a free app from the app store and I have to enter a password on my completely unlocked iPad. Only thing is, it's been so dang long since I entered my Apple password, I no longer remember what it is. Simple right, choose the 'Forgot Password' option. If only.

    I can't wait until this POS fries a chip. I know there are people that just love the confines of this unopen architecture. God luv ya.

    I'm the meantime it was as easy as click, download and install on my Android phone. I think I'm stuck with only the previously downloaded apps on the iPad until it dies a satisfying death. :mad:

    Satisfying way for an IPad to expire.

    Only Apple product I have is my Apple Tv. It annoyed me at first and if it didnt have 4k capabilities, it would be boxed up and I'd still be using Roku. I don't know, Apple products seem too expensive for what they are.

    Our work phones are iPhones and I think they suck

    I have a Mac computer, and that's the most contact I wish to have with Apple.

    12 day waiting period for a password reset?


    I'm simply trying to download a free app on my already unlocked iPad. It really doesn't need to be this difficult of a procedure for a password reset.[​IMG]

    LOL, wow. It's Apple so it's really not surprising, sadly.

    Every Apple product I've ever used was overpriced garbage.

    I turned my old iPad on the other day. Turned it back off a few minutes later.

    I'll stick to my Microsoft Surface.

    The only thing I like about an iPhone more than an Android is typing on them. Considering switching because I'm not happy that everyone is following Apple's lead on hardware so I might as well get an iPhone. But I'm going to hang on to my Note 8 and it's headphone jack as long as possible.

    Dad hates it. I finally updated to 10.11.6 El Capitan on my desktop. Still havent found the change.

    That's just the beginning. After that, I had to wait over the 12 day waiting period to get it resolved. I finally was able to download the 'free' app that I needed a couple weeks prior. Only an Apple product would be so cumbersome to navigate a simple task of a password reset.

    Apple takes security seriously. These devices are people’s livelihoods.

    It’s not Apple’s fault the password was forgotten.

    iPhones are useful. The navigation is simply easier to use in my opinion and great for quick browsing.

    Anywho, you can turn off the password for free app downloads by going to: Settings>iTunes & App Store>Password Settings> and then untuggle require password for free downloads.

    You may also want to choose to require password every 15 minutes instead of always require.

    Now, that's a bit of info I could have used a while back. I waited my allotted days and reset the password downloading the app I needed. All good today. That being said, when a new tablet becomes a necessity, I'll be switching over to an Android product. I'm only using this one because I already have it and can't justify the switch over. Now, if it just happens to fall out of my truck the next time I'm parked in a truck stop and all 9 wheels on the driver's side proceed to drive over it causing me to pause to investigate the noise..... In turn backing up, again the victim of multiple tires under pressure..... Well, let's just say that it may become a new, necessary investment. ;)

    Thanks for that info. I was wanting to download a free app a couple of days ago and I can't remember my password either.
