An Apple ID is an essential part of using any Apple device, be it an iPhone, iPad, or Mac. This is because only with the help of that ID, your data can be synced across various devices. However, losing your Apple ID means you are doomed and won’t be able to access your iCloud backups or anything else. And here we are to help you and prevent you from getting into this mess. So here’s a guide on how you can find your forgotten ID in simple ways.
Use Apple’s iForgot page
The company also provides you with a way to look up your forgotten ID via its own I forgot page with the address “www.iforgot.apple.com/appleid”. Next:
- Type in your first and last name and any email address you want to search for.
- Repeat the step above as needed to find a match.
If, for some reason, you cannot open the page, you may contact Apple’s customer support, which may require you to enter the same information as the Apple iForgot page, but here, the customer support executive will hopefully give you all the information you need successfully.
Check your Emails
Your ID may be included in some emails from the company. You may search your inbox for receipts as well as repair, support or billing emails from Apple. However, if your Email is masked, remember that the number of asterisks may not match the number of characters in your Apple ID.
