Question: Login icloud via bash script

Hey all,

So I need to login to iCloud via a bash script for automated testing purposes. Does anybody know if this is possible to do? I have been unable to find any documentation on doing so.

MacBook Pro, iOS 11

You can open an icloud.com login screen from the Terminal in a one-liner, but two hurdles immediately face you:

  1. Entering the Apple ID, and password in a web form
  2. How to deal with the two-step verification code challenge and code entry following item 1.

From the command-line:

osascript -e "tell application \"Safari\" to open location \"icloud.com\""
