Hi There

Ever since i started using my iPhone 6s it's asking me to

'' Apple ID Verification
Enter the password for ****@icloud.com in settings ''

It happens every time after i restart or turn off my phone which i have to do at least twice a day thanks to the phone being laggy and stuff.

The other thing is that it's keep turning itself off, sometimes for no apparent reason and then sometimes my screen goes blurry with lines, like when you smash a screen and it cracks the LCD, then turns off.
- There's a picture attached with this screen to this thread.

Well, you might ask why don't i just exchange my phone, i still have time until January to do that with the extended return policy but i did that almost 10 times now and none of the phones were useable on a level you'd expect. Some had home button issues, some had abnormal battery drain, some were scratched out of the box, loose headphone jack... Im just so fed up with this whole thing.

Is there anyone who had the same issue? what did you guys do?

I too would like to know. It's getting annoying already.

Others have reported the same with the latest OS update.

Not a big deal. Sounds like a good idea to me, for security.

How often are you rebooting???;)



It's just the worst, especially when I'm outside on a busy street and my dumb phone resets itself and then repeatedly asks for the password until enter it. It shuts itself down at least two times a day.

I had this same problem with my previous 6s plus along with a few other issues that caused me to return it since I had only had it a few days. I ended up buying another I was told by a Apple employee on my numerous calls into tech trying to fix issues that the Apple ID verification issue was a bug in the 9.1 if updated over wifi. They recommend updating through iTunes on a computer to resolve the issue. I couldn't get the other issues resolved on the other phone but did update the new one through iTunes before I even activated the phone this past weekend I haven't had it pop up yet but not saying that this is the fix because I have only powered off the phone once since Sunday but have lag and freezing present like many others

I would suggest wiping the phone and starting from scratch. Its clearly mucked up for some reason. None of my families's iPhones require rebooting ever... let alone several times a day. This is going back to an iPhone 4s through 6s Plus.

Thanks guys for the replies! I sure will be going back to apple at one point if it doesn't stop happening and I'll just exchange my phone for a new one and do an iTunes update, who knew we'd still have to struggle with this in 2015, how sad.

I noticed having to do this on my iPad Air 2 as well a couple of days ago when I restarted it. I think I did it twice, not for it shutting off or anything but it was a bit laggy so I restarted it. Both times asked for my AppleId PW. Mind you I just replaced my iPad a week ago and set it up as new from iTunes if that makes a difference.
