Step 3: Input your Apple ID, followed by your password and click “OK”. This step simply uses Apple’s own self-signing service. Your information is neither collected by Saurik.
Note: if your Appel ID has two-step verification, you’ll be required to create a single app password. Check out our Tutorial here.
