    Hello.
    I need to rest my iPhone X but I've forgotten my Apple ID password and I can't recover it.
    Is it okay to Reset All Settings from General=> Rest? And then setup a new Apple ID?

    Nope. In order to change out IDs you have to log out of one and into the other. If I remember correctly you have to log out of iCloud to wipe your phone as well. How did you manage to forget your Apple ID?

    I came across these two articles from Apple's support site:

    https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201487

    https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204921

    There are ways to change or recover your password, provided you are the account owner. Otherwise, no, there's no way.
