Getting iCloud Accounts w/2-step enabled to work with Outlook for iOS

So, you’ve just installed Outlook for iOS and you’re trying to get iCloud to work on it, but you remember, you have two-step verification enabled!  If you’re trying to get this to work, you’ll need to generate an application specific password before you’ll able to log in and use the app.

Follow the steps outlined in HT204397:

  1. Go to My Apple ID.
  2. Select Manage your Apple ID and sign in.
  3. Select Password and Security.
  4. Click Generate an App-Specific Password and follow the steps on your screen.

Once you’ve generated your password, it’s important that you DO NOT copy and paste it into the Outlook for iOS app.  This will simply cause an error.  You need to manually input the password WITHOUT the dashes (“-“) or the login will simply errror out.

If you typed everything in correctly, you should now be enjoying Outlook for iOS!
