    Both my wife and I have 6S's.

    Both are replacement phones running 9.1 that were restored from 9.1 backups.

    Both after you turn them off then back on request the Apple ID password within 1-3 minutes of the phone turning on.

    We've contacted apple support they recommend restoring etc.. But nothing seems to help.

    Has anyone else experienced this with 9.1?

    Yes this happens to me! I did a fresh setup of my iPhone 6S instead of restoring from backup. However yeah after any updates or restarting my phone it asks me to for Apple ID verification too, and brings me to the iCloud settings in settings.

    Same here. Super annoying. Also having problems with mail prompting for my passwords.

    Problem started since 9.1.

    Tried restoring/setting up as new, and no difference.

    Give this a try. Log in your Apple ID and turn off 2-step verification. Your phone is confused and forgets that you have 2-step verification set up. Turning it off temporarily should fix this problem. After everything returns to normal, set up 2-step verification again.

    I've never had 2 step set up.

    Yup happens to me too. Annoying as I usually have to reboot at least once a week

    How about trying to sign out of you iCloud account on your phone? Then sign back in.

    I thought your phone WAS supposed to ask for this info after a reboot to make sure it is in the owners hands.

    I don't believe so..the only two things that happen after a reboot, are forced PIN entry for lock screen, and forced password entry for iTunes. The iCloud login should persist. For me I have noticed it requesting it once in about three reboots, not everytime.

    Hah! Yeah I thought it was a feature. o_O

    No. It is not a security feature to ask for iCloud password after reboot.

    I am *guessing* that the problem was caused by restoring your phone from an iCloud backup that was not encrypted.

    Hence, I am suggesting to sign out of I your iCloud account and then sign back in.

    Mine was a brand new 6s plus set-up with no restore. It is still doing it. So I am not sure what is causing it......I have tried signing out and back in and it didn't stop it happening.

    That's good to know. If you are still willing to troubleshoot, the next try would be to enable 2-step verification on your iCloud account.

    Everytime my phone crashes and reboots, it asks me to verify my iCloud password.

    I too thought this was a feature as perhaps a crash could be taken as a hack attempt(?)

    I had the password verification on reboot. Signing out, signing back in, and rebooting seems to have fixed it. I have 2 step verification enabled.

    same thing here, but only on my new 6S... Tried many things, but nothing really works. For some days i changed my iCloud password, now is everything fine again :)!
