I have a 6 year old MacBook Pro and a 6 month old iPad mini and am confused about which passwords apply. I use password "Pro" when I download applications or log in to my MacBook Pro. I can only use a numbered password to log into my iPad mini, and use "iPad numbers". When I set up my iPad I had to reset my password, that seemed to be associated with my .me email address, and I used password "iPad". Is my password "iPad" also the password for my .me email address? Today, I tried to upgrade my MacBook Pro to macOS Sierra and it appeared to ask for the password associated with my .me email, but it did not accept my password "iPad". EDIT 3; but I suppose it is possible that I may have got it wrong twice. Can someone please lay out what passwords I need and what they give me access to? Over the years things seem to change and often my old passwords do not seem to work. Note passwords in inverted commas are not real. EDIT:- My iPad is due to be updated, which password will I need, "iPad numbers" or "ipad"? EDIT 2;- I have just received a dialogue box on my iPad saying that someone had tried to access my account near London and should I allow? I am about 100 miles from London but I assumed that it was me as it was too much of a coincidence. Another dialogue box then appeared titled 'Apple ID verification code' saying 'Type your password followed by this code into the password field of your device.' it then gives 3 numeric characters, followed by a space and 3 more numeric characters. What is that all about? Note, both the iPad and the MacBook Pro appear to be working normally and my email is working.
