    Have 2 iPhone 6's both running iOS 9.3.1. The phones have been setup to be identical in every setting except belonging to two different Apple ID's.

    The two-factor authorization screen on phone "A" first shows a map image with an allow/allow location selection which then leads to the authorization code input screen.

    This is the scheme that Apple shows in it's Two-Factor documentation.

    The authorization screen on phone "B" just goes straight to the authorization code input screen--no map + don't allow/allow option.

    Does anyone have any idea why this would be the case and is there any security risk to phone "B" as a result of bypassing the map screen?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    I don't know. I don't use 2 factor authentication. But here's info on it. No mention of a map.

    But no mention of a map in the directions for set up. It just shows log in. Maybe one of the OP's phones had no log in to report.
    He/she expects them to be identical. They're not always gonna be.

    Correct. I was just poking fun at you for not seeing the map on the page you linked.
