Issues With iOS 10 Beta 2, Users Encountering “Apple ID Locked Error”

Downloading beta software specifically operating systems on to a device other than the one meant for testing isn’t a good idea and usually leads to complications.

This turned out to be true for all the users who downloaded the iOS 10 beta 2 software on their devices as they were sadly and promptly locked out of the Apple ID they were using to run their phone by the “Apple ID Locked Error.

According to Apple this might be happening because of the two step verification requirement. While Apple is unable to pinpoint the source for this issue it has identified two possible causes, there is a bug in the iOS 10 beta 2 or in one of the servers it connects with for authentication.

It seems as if Apple doesn’t have a solution to this problem at the moment so we suggest that for the time being anybody who is using the iOS 10 beta 2 turn off their two factor authentication.

This does it make it easier for hackers to hijack your data but beats the alternative of being unable to access your own stuff.

The iOS 10 original beta is set to see a lot more tweaks over the next few months with more beta releases to ensure that the final iOS 10 beta is glitch free when it will be made available for shipping sometime this September.
