@philbowell Or worse, your Apple ID email. Had to wipe most of my devices to get out of that mess.

@scientifics it's been a nightmare. iMessage wouldn't accept the new password, various other app issues as well.

@jack yeh I've heard similar which is what's stopped me changing it.

@philbowell It gets even more complicated if you have two-factor authentication set up on your account. You need specific passwords for every app that interacts with iCloud/Mail etc

@stefp yeh, I have it but have been mostly using the stock apps lately. I'm sure I'll find some that need changing in the next few days though. Always the way.
