If your iPhone keeps asking you to Sign into iCloud

This issue is usually seen on the older iPhones where the phone keeps on asking the user to enter their iCloud password even though they have entered and logged in numerous times. This is likely triggered due to an issue with the software or network connection.

What makes the iPhone want you to Sign in continuously and how to fix it?

We found the underlying causes to be:

  • Glitch: In some cases, the error is just triggered due to a glitch which the mobile might have acquired while starting up or due to any other reason. These sorts of glitches occur all the time with iPhones and in most cases, can easily be fixed by a simple restart.
  • Network Settings: It is possible that your network settings have been configured in such a way that iCloud is unable to sign in to their servers and this is triggering the error. iCloud requires that all the network settings are configured properly so that the connection can be established with their servers. This might also trigger the Cellular Update Failed error.
  • Software Issue: In some cases, there might be a software update available for your iPhone which you might not have installed so far. It is important that you update your software to the latest version to achieve the full functionality of the phone and to avoid bugs/glitches. New Updates come with improvements and patch fixes for these sorts of bugs. If you are unable to install updates consult the Error Occured while installing iOS article.
  • Facetime/iMessage: It is also possible that the Facetime/iMessage features might have glitched out and they might be interfering with certain functionalities of the phone due to which the error is being triggered. These features are known to cause issues with certain features. In some cases, they might be Waiting For Activation which might trigger this issue.

  3. Confirm your action and wait for the phone to reset the settings.
  4. Sign in to your Wifi again and check to see if the issue persists.

  2. Scroll down and select the “General” option.
