M2 iPad Pro here.

Ever since iPadOS 16, I keep getting asked to enter my password when I try to open my iCloud details in settings - “Apple ID Verification” keeps showing up.

I enter the correct password but I keep getting prompts saying that my password is incorrect and “Verification Failed” pop up.

So basically I cannot view or edit my iCloud details on my iPad at all. I am still logged onto the iPad itself, can download apps etc.

Is this an iPadOS 16 bug?

Yes only on the iPad. Never seen this on the iPhone or watch or MacBook.

Same Apple ID on iCloud and App Store.
I asked because I saw this too.
Apparently I have some sort of file on my phone that uses my other iTunes account.

When I changed the store account then back it went away.

For some reason I was able to change the store account 1 time. When I went back to change it back it would not allow me until after a restart.

The his never happened prior to 16
