[SOLVED] I cannot sign into iCloud. Why?

regarding this

[forums.macresource.com]

my son had 2FA OFF and I was able to sign him out and back in just fine.

Wife has 2FA ON and I was not able to recieve the code since I do not have another device with proper iOS or MacOS registered in her name. But there was an option to get a code via SMS which came to her iPhone just fine. before I got a chance to enter it, Settings jumped to the next step (I guess it entered the code automatically) but it is still "signing in to iCloud". It's been like this for a while now. I even quit the settings App and restarted, I had to enter the password again, and the damn spinning wheel is still spinning.

How long should it take to sign into this iCloud?

EDIT: I decided to restart the iPhone, and guess what, it went past that screen and this time it asked me to enter the passcode (which I remembered) and now everything works properly.

Sunday is often 'work on servers' day - it might be them and not you...

No, given that it’s space-time, it’s him. Be patient.

This was exactly my experience yesterday when trying to reset my password for my seldom used spinny Macintosh HD.

Exactly.

Restarting after 10min did the trick. To be fair, there's an Apple support page that says if you've recently changed your password, the process could take some time.

The password has not been changed in a while (more than a year).

I had some strange issues signing in with a seldom used C2D MBP yesterday.
