Apple Quietly Made the Account Settings Page on Your iPhone a Tiny Bit More Useful

Every once in a while, Apple will push out a minor update that fixes some random little problem with its operating systems. This time around, it’s the Apple ID page in 10.3, which finally has a more cohesive settings page with access to everything from two-factor authentication to serial numbers on your other devices.

Open up the Settings app and you’ll immediately see your Apple ID information at the top of the screen. Tap that and you get access to a number of things related to iCloud, your ID, iTunes, and more. Most of this stuff was included in previous versions of iOS, but it’s all now accessible on one page.

The first thing you can tap on is your name, phone numbers, and email. You can also change your DOB and change your settings for different email newsletters if you’re getting those.

Next up is Password & Security, which used to be buried under a bunch of different pages. Here, you can turn on two-factor authentication, change your trusted phone numbers, and request verification codes to sign into your iCloud account on other devices. Previously, you’d have to tap Settings > iCloud > Apple ID > Password & Security to get to this page, which was cumbersome and awkwardly located. Now, it’s super easy to get to. If you haven’t turned on two-factor authentication, now is a really good time to do so.
