Question: can't log into app store. caught in a loop where it doesn't recognise my computer only my iPad
Trying to upgrade from OS 10.7.5 to OS 10.8 before a bigger upgrade to High Sierra.
Purchased OS10.8 and trying to redeem on App Store but it won't let me log in without a verification code which it sends not to my computer but to my iPad.
Only recognises my iPad...
Password still working on computer or iPad to log in except when I try to do anything on App store.
Going round in circles!
Trying to follow the instructions in red but when I type in password again expecting to get field for verification code, it just comes up with this:
then sends another message to iPad saying that apple ID being used to sign into another device. I click Allow and it asks me to input ANOTHER verification code but there is no field to put it in as the computer thinks I have forgotten my password again. Can't get anywhere! Help!
iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
