    We still have our original first gen iPad kicking around and wanted to turn it into a digital photo frame. I’ve reset the iPad and I’m currently going through the setup process. I’m getting stuck on the signing into iTunes screen. When I click next after entering my iCloud info, I get a notification on my iPhone and iPad 9th gen stating a device is trying to sign in and I click allow. I then get a verification code on whichever device I have accepted on. On the original iPad, it tells me the verification code is required. I hit ok, the box goes away and there’s nowhere to enter the code. It’s just just stays on the iCloud sign in screen. If I hit next, the process just continues with more pop up’s on my other devices.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Hi,

    You might want to try to type in your Apple ID, and password with the 6 digit verification code added to the end of your password.

    To get your verification code preemptively, which you will have to do, go into the Settings, then tap on your name at the top.

    From there, tap on Password & Security.


    Finally, tap on Get Verification Code at the bottom which will give you the necessary 6 digit code.

    Many thanks Ed! That did the trick. I also took a slightly different route this time around. I skipped the iCloud log in during the setup. That got me right to the Home Screen of the iPad. From there, I logged into iCloud via settings using my password, plus the six digit verification code.

    Thanks again! Great to have this older unit up and running again!

    - Try restarting it: Restart your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
    - Try plugging it in to a computer with iTunes to attempt the activation.
    - Try performing a recovery mode restore: If you can't update or restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
