    So initially I set up 2-factor with my iPhone and the codes worked. Then later I set up Google Authenticator as well on my iPad. But when my 30 days expired and I had to enter the code in, the 6-digit code from the iPad didn't work. I entered the one from the iPhone and it did. Also I noticed the codes were not the same on the iPhone & iPad.

    I had the same problem with my new iPhone in September. Delete the MacRumors profile from Google Authenticator on your iPad and set up a new profile.

    Make sure you input the 6-digit code that is generated after scanning the QR code and it should be up and working again.
