So uh...

 

 

 

I had to turn my iPhone in to Apple for a replacement, and I *may* have forgotten to deactivate 2FA (and lost my recovery code). What do I do now?

If you don't have access to any of your trusted devices (Mac, iPhone, iPad etc) and have lost your recovery key etc then the only thing to do is to create a new Apple ID.

Argh my apologies. Brain isn't 100% today. Totally misread that.

 

@freitasm should be able to help you out here. In future though, it is worth using Authy for 2FA.
