    Hello,

    I am using iOS 9.2 on a iPad Pro; I am not able to login to iCloud.com via Safari (https://www.icloud.com/ipad_welcome/). There is only the option to get an explanation how I have to go about setting up iCloud on my device (which I have already done).

    Is there any possibility of logging in to iCloud.com like on my dektop Mac?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Jochen

    Hold your finger on the reload button in the address field, it will then give you the option to access the non-mobile version.

    But entering the code doesn't work if you have 2FA enabled.

    I just tried it on my 4s and the keyboard for entering the code also did not appear, but on my 6s Plus it's working.

    Edit: Both are also on iOS 9.2, but the 6S Plus is without a SIM at the moment. Do you have a SIM in your iPad? @Jochen K Or did it work meanwhile? I thought that answer was from you.

    I tried in on an iPad Air with 9.2. The iPad does have a SIM inserted but I don't think it has anything to do with that, as I can login to appleid.apple.com just fine. Maybe you aren't supposed to use that site on a mobile device. Or it's just shoddy coding.

    Edit: Doesn't work with a BT keyboard either.

    Edit:

    Yes it seems it is not supposed for use on mobile devices. Otherwise the login would appear directly. I'll try what happens if I put the SIM back in the other phone. Also the site it nearly unusable on an iPhone. It's extremely slow on the 6s Plus and I can't zoom or scroll.

    Strange my 6 does not even load the site completely (spinnig circle). It has the same content blocker with same options installed as the 6s Plus.

    I can login with or without SIM on my 6s Plus, on my 4s still no keyboard. Maybe it is only working on the device where the code appears if not send by SMS. That's the 6s Plus for me. Or it's just a bug in iOS that the keyboard does not appear on some devices.

    @Erdbeertorte
    Did you authenticate using the fingerprint reader on your 6s? That might be the difference.
