Apple iCloud 2 Factor Authentication – You’ll Get It Wrong Once

Apple’s two factor authentication feature for iCloud is a little clunky. Basically, when you have 2 factor authentication set up with iCloud you will need to get the password incorrect once. Meaning that when you enter your email and password to access iCloud the first time to you do it will always be wrong. This is essentially required.
