Unfortunately, several users have reported “verification failed” errors when logging in to iCloud, iTunes, and Apple Store on the iPhone, iPad, or Mac. This post explains how to fix the Apple ID verification failed unknown error in iOS.

We strongly recommend following the solution for the best results:

iOS and iPadOS Update

Your device Apple ID Verification Failed due to bugs or system glitches, and it’s advisable to install the newest iOS update as soon as possible to improve device security. So the first thing you should do if you’re getting the “Error Connecting to Apple ID, Verification Failed” message is to make sure that the software for your device is updated. Some people, however, have reported seeing the Apple ID error message after updating their software.

This process is a standard one that almost all users have tried and tested but read this part. iOS has evolved over the years, and you need to enable more than Wi-Fi to keep on going. The technology might have advanced in many countries, but that isn’t the case in several developing countries, where consumers have unstable connectivity issues.

  • Tap “Settings” to begin the process.
  • Tap “Cellular” or “WLAN” on the device.
  • Click to turn on WLAN & Cellular Data on the phone.
  • Tap on “Cellular Data Options” or “WLAN Data Options” to continue.
  • Enable “Data Roaming” and tap on “Enable 4G/5G” to continue.
  • Tap on “Voice & Data” or “Data Only” and choose whatever suits you the best.

Note: You have to take manual action to enable the advanced connection. The advanced connection options are disabled by Apple mobile operating system by default, and networks operate differently in several countries. And don’t assume that iOS will take care of everything because Apple respects your personal choices and keep some things turned off.
