Rant #2: multiple log in boxes for iCloud, facetime, iMessages
Posted by: space-time
Date: January 25, 2020 06:42PM
my MacBook Pro is dying and I used target disk mode to boot the Mini from the MacBook SSD to allow the kid to play his Minecraft world.

So when I log in into my account, it asked for FaceTime password. This is Mavericks. I enter it, I not it asked me for iCloud password. meanwhile I get a code on my iPhone. I am not sure if I can use this code for iCloud (you enter password and add the code at the end), or I need to wait until I get the FaceTime dialog again. I try to enter the password with code, then I get the iCloud, same thing I enter password with code,

eventually I get the FaceTime dialog box again, and I enter the password with code and it tells me it is not correct. I eventually get a new code, and I enter that in the next dialog box that comes up (I don't recall it it was iMessage, iCloud or FaceTime) and everything seems happy now, no more log in boxes.

The whole order is like a random series of big in boxes and message on iPhone and it is impossible to say which code is for which App.

What a cluster frack.

If you weren't running an ancient OS it would be in one spot at the top of system preferences. You are complaning about something they fixed a long time ago,

I am running an "ancient" OS because I am tired of yearly updates that introduce new problems and remove features.

I think you're being a bit paranoid about this, s-t…

Live dangerously. Step on a crack. Go outside without an umbrella. Walk under a ladder. Update your Apple devices.

Embrace the change and the new. Running Catalina here, took me a few weeks to get used to it and now I prefer it over using Mojave.

I just finished doing multiple unsuccessful logins. Solved by rebooting.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Be careful, eventually it will lock you out... I just ended up disabling iMessage on my Mavs Hackintosh. It worked great for awhile but then became too much trouble and was interfering with all my apple ID devices...
