iPhone, Tutorials

Changing your password on your iPhone is an important step in ensuring the security of your device and personal information. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of changing your password on an iPhone.

Step 1: Accessing Settings

To begin, locate and tap on the Settings app icon on your iPhone’s home screen. It is usually represented by a gray gear icon.

Step 2: Navigating to Password Settings

Once you are in the Settings app, scroll down until you find the Passwords & Accounts option. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 3: Changing Your Password

In the Passwords & Accounts section, you will see various account options listed. Look for and tap on the iCloud option.

If you have enabled two-factor authentication for your Apple ID, you may be prompted to enter a verification code at this point. Enter the code to proceed.

Next, tap on the Password & Security option within iCloud settings.


  • If you are not signed in to iCloud, you will need to sign in using your Apple ID and password before proceeding further.
  • If you have forgotten your Apple ID password, please refer to our tutorial on how to reset it.

Step 4: Verifying Your Identity

To ensure that only authorized users can change their passwords, Apple requires users to verify their identity before proceeding further. Tap on the Change Password option within Password & Security settings.

You may be prompted to answer your security questions or enter your iPhone’s passcode to verify your identity. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete this step.

Step 5: Creating a New Password

After successfully verifying your identity, you will be able to create a new password for your Apple ID. Enter your current password followed by your desired new password. Make sure to choose a strong and unique password that is not easily guessable.

Note: Apple recommends using a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols for the strongest passwords.

Step 6: Finalizing the Change

Once you have entered and confirmed your new password, tap on the Change or Done button (depending on your iOS version) to finalize the change.

Congratulations! You have successfully changed your password on your iPhone. Your new password is now in effect and will be required whenever you sign in with your Apple ID.


  • To ensure the security of your device, it is recommended to periodically change your iPhone’s password.
  • Avoid using easily guessable passwords such as “password123” or common words found in dictionaries.
  • If you have trouble remembering complex passwords, consider using a password manager app to securely store and autofill them for you.
