Two factor authentication through phone when an iOS device is connected to Visual Studio

Hi There,

When I connect my iPad to my Xamarin/Visual Studio setup, I get the verification dialog which asks me to enter 6 digit code from the trusted device. Currently that device is far away from me and I only have my phone which is saved as "trusted phone number" to my apple id. However, that dialog does not offer "send the code to phone as text" option which you can find on various Apple websites where you use two factor authentication. So my question is, is there any way to receive that code to my phone rather than trusted device?

Thanks,

Özden

This is the screen I see when I connect iPad to my PC. There is no option to route the code to phone like Apple is providing on it's websites.

Hi @zdenIrmak-5568 ,

Thank you for sharing me the screenshot.

I’m afraid this dialog window and related options cannot be changed and it, indeed, does not offer option like “send the code to phone as text”. Perhaps you can go to developer website of Apple and add the phone numbers which belongs to the phone that you can use to verify currently, to try again.

Besides, this issue should be more related to the settings from Apple, I also suggest you ask this question on Apple’s related websites, like https://developer.apple.com/support/.

Best Regards,
Tianyu

Hello Tianyu,

Before writing in here, I contacted both Apple Developer Support and Apple Consumer Support sections where they told me that they cannot help me and I should contact with Microsoft. Also, my phone number is already added as trusted phone number into my Apple developer account.

It seems there is no solution for that.

Regards,

Özden

Hello Özden, thanks for your feedback. I see, so both your phone and another device had been added as trusted phone number into your Apple developer account, but only the another device got the 6 digit verification right? Was your Apple account already logged in on your phone?
