iPhone Stuck on “Sign in to iCloud” Popup Loop? How to Fix It

iCloud makes our lives easier by providing storage and backup for your iPhone. So it can be a real hassle when your iPhone gets stuck on Sign in to iCloud popup loop. Most of the time, this happens when your device has trouble latching onto a WiFi network or if there’s something else blocking your device from connecting to the internet. There are a few different things you can try to fix this issue. Let’s have a look.

How to Fix iPhone Stuck on “Sign in to iCloud” Popup Loop?

Solution #1 Check System Status of iCloud Services

The first step thing to do is to check out Apple’s System Status site. It will show you if iCloud is currently facing any server issues that could be causing the error. This is indicated by iCloud being shown in yellow on the site. However, if it is listed in green, there are no current server issues, so you should proceed to the next tip below.

Solution #2: Check WiFi Network

In many cases, the problem with the ‘Sign in to iCloud’ loop occurs due to a faulty internet connection. So you should connect to a different WiFi network and try to sign in to iCloud again. If the problem persists, move onto the next solution.

Solution #3: Hard Reset iOS Device

Hard reset is when you press and hold the home button and power button till the screen goes blank. Then, press the power button to boot the iPhone. When you do a hard reset, and when the iPhone reboots, the iPhone takes some time to initialize things before attempting to connect to iCloud.

This time can be used to connect the iPhone to a WiFi network. So when the iPhone boots up after the hard reset, the first thing you do is head over to SettingsWiFi and join a network.

Solution #5: Reset your Device as New

  1. The problem is you cannot signout of iCloud unless you are connected to the internet and you cannot connect to regular WiFi Connection because it keeps getting reset by the constant iCloud login prompts. However connecting via Bluetooth occurs faster than regular WiFI allow you to connect in between iCloud prompts.

    I had the same problem with my iPad. Here is what I had to do.

    1. Turn on Personal HotSpot on my iPhone(Wifi and USB)

    2. Turn on Bluetooth on my iPad between iCloud popups

    3. Connect to the Hotspot on the iPhone from the iPad

    4. Settings -> iCloud -> Signoff

  2. i’m trying to restore an iPhone 4s but it won’t let me because when i sing in to iCloud it tells me my password is incorrect. I have changed my password 4 or 5 times and I write it down and finally realized it is not me

  3. This fix makes no sense to me. This does not seem to be related to wifi at least not for me. After upgrading to iOS8.2 i get the icloud login prompt on my phone and ipad and it is annoying as hell.

    • I think you mean iOS 8.1. Are you on beta version? That could be a
      problem too. If not, try to disable all the iCloud services – iMessage,
      Facetime, iTunes & App Store, iCloud. As a last resort, there’s
      complete restore.

  4. What you need to do is quickly tap on your wifi name and fill the password ( you also have to cancel the annoying pop up lots of time while typing your password). After you are connected, either the pop up will stop coming or you can just reset your password.

  5. Thanks, this helped me. Another way to activate wifi though is If you click “forgot password” or whatever it said, it brings up safari, and if you’re quick enough to actually click one of the network names, the wifi login trumps the iCloud login. No need to reset this way. :)
