Hi SAVAGEnawaf,

Thank you for contacting Apple Support Communities. Based on what you stated, it seems like you are trying to sign into iCloud and you need to approve signing in. This happens if you are using two-factor authentication. If you don't have another device to approve from, this article has more information about the next steps.

What if I don’t have access to a trusted device or didn't receive a verification code?

If you're signing in and don’t have a trusted device handy that can display verification codes, you can have a code sent to your trusted phone number via text message or an automated phone call instead. Click Didn't Get a Code on the sign in screen and choose to send a code to your trusted phone number. You can also get a code directly from Settings on a trusted device. Learn how to get a verification code.
