    This is getting annoying.

    Ever since I updated to iOS 5 on my iPhone 4 and iPad, I have had my whole Apple ID password reset because of numerous attempts. I have to go to iForgot on Apple's site to fix it. No information has been changed and I don't have any credit cards in my profile.

    Are these new services locking me out or is someone trying to hack me? I have a decent password, but this is annoying. I have never had my password reset before iOS 5.

    I wonder if one of the bundled apps, or an app like Find My Friends, has the wrong password for your Apple ID and is retrying in the background, causing lockouts. Short of wiping the devices and setting up as new, I don't know how you would be able to determine that, but if you're sure you're not the one doing the log-in attempts, it's one theory...
